I'm from a small city called Swindon. It's about an hours drive away from London! Well, I don't know a great deal about English electrics or construction because I learnt my trades in Sweden. Which is virtually the same as the US and Canada when it comes to timber houses. The electrics are also the same, virtually anyway. England and their three pin plugs... What were they thinking!?
First time I looked in at an English plug I was thinking... "What!?" Then I discovered that if you work on building sites you can't use normal 240volt appliances, you have to get 110v cables and plugs fitted to your tools... I now realise why English tradesman just get everything battery powered.
