    I'm after some advice on wiring a plug. I'm normally okay with plugs but this one has me confused. What cable should I be using and would a 3A fuse be okay? I've attached a couple of pictures to give you a better idea of what I'm working with.

    agreed I'd just cut it off completely and start from scratch. might need a chunky cord grip tho, maybe fashion something from a bit of 4 by 2?

    Go to the back of the building and have a look at the consumer unit.

    But if all you want to do is work on it there is a local isolator on the wall round the corner

    So am I.

    In fact I always keep a very close watch on what I'm eating, lest someone try to steal it. Or, (far, far more likely), I spill it down me.

    My best meal in London was at The Vegetarian Cottage, Haverstock Hill, Chinese food all veggie but completely nommy.

    It's now a Japanese restaurant, Ikura.

    I do that every time I eat.
    Do you have a slightly protruding belly like me?:)

    Apparently, it increases the chances...!

    Masala Zone is South Indian food, so a lot of veggie options.


    I refuse to answer that on the grounds that it may incriminate me.


    Protects the carpet, I reckon.
