And it's not unreasonable to think that she came here to lie and insult our intelligence....I have no idea her level of inteligence, and neither do you and you were making personal attacks..
So does that mean that choosing a 0.5mm² cable for a 6.4kW appliance wasn't a stupid thing to do?for all you know she might be a biochemist on the verge of finding a cure for cancer, or a theoretical physicist about to prove unified string theory..
She could be a Nobel prize winner, but if she decided to change the brakes on her car despite knowing absolutely nothing about it then that would be a stupid thing to do.that doesn't mean she automatically knows how to wire a hob or change the brakes on her car...

I don't believe BAS has treat her any different to anyone else. Electricity doesn't discriminate, it can quite easily kill you wether you are a an attractivebrunette or a pimply faced youth.She hasn't said whether she has followed my advice yet. Perhaps your doom-mongering and character asassination has scared her off ban.
