Barclays and EU banking

Are Barclays paid up members of the UKIP?

Priority International Payments to Europe up to €50,000: £20 (provided IBAN and SWIFTBIC are quoted)†

Additional charge for payments to Europe where IBAN and SWIFTBIC have not been provided
£7 (with effect from 27 March 2006)†.

20 GBP charge to send some money to my friend in France? That’s insane. I am glad I still have my Finnish account. Pity it has no money in it.

Can anyone recommend a British bank which has cheaper/free EU transfer charges?
