Default Re: Modern MK Safety Plug. Not impressed

I do understand the issue of fitting plugs. To us it seems easy. When I was younger I remember looking at a couple of things where my younger brother had put on the plugs. One was L-N crossed, the other N-E crossed (which gave some really odd symptoms). Thank god he never got L-E crossed. He's not a stupid person, and in fact these days trains Openreach technicians (let's not go there please) but if he couldn't wire a plug I can understand how some could easily make it quite dangerous. I also remember when I worked in Woolies, little old ladies buying a table lamp and plug, and asking us to fit the plug, which we weren't allowed to do.
