    Looks like the Fianna Fail front bench.

    You might have thought An Oige might have pasted in an Irish flag beside the brits

    Let’s start a campaign to ditch the British socket and join Europe with Schuko instead.

      Good luck with that! :-)

      BS plug is probably the safest in the world…

      Below is from the interwebs:

      -the powered slots are shuttered until opened by a third safety-pin
      -the pins are covered partway down by an insulator so you cannot touch the metal pins when they are connected
      -the plug has an independent fuse
      -the internal wires are colour-labeled “bLue” for Left and “bRown” for Right
      -the grounding wire is longer than the powered wires (so if the cable is yanked out the ground should be the last thing to disconnect)
      -The distance from pins to edge of plug is large to reduce risk of fingers getting near pins.
      -The cable exits at 90 degrees so that pulling the cable is less likely to pull the plug partially out.
      -The ground pin is longer so last to unplug.
      -It is part of a system that has switches on outlets so that appliances can be turned off at the wall (rather than leaving unplugged plugs lying on the floor).
      -The fuse is located so you have to unplug before changing.
      -cables are clamped by a cord-grip
