Like an earth electrode you mean?
An Earth electrode should have an impedance of 200 Ohms or less. Ensures an RCD will trip.
30 mA would flow if 240 Volts when to ground via an 8,000 Ohm path.
That does not detract from anything I have written.
No it doesn't, but it extends the thought process into the ( apparently ) uncharted areas of sneak paths to Earth with a range of un-predictable impedances.
