I rewired my 100 year old Edwardian house ( I am not qualified but I became a Electrician Assistant for a month to help with the costs). In that month I moaned and complained about pulling cables through floorboards and fitting very cramped dual sockets and having to follow exact regulations to get the sparks to "sign off" the job. NEVER AGAIN WILL I COMPLAIN. having moved to Portugal and started to refurb a 15yr old property! I have never ever seen such a crappy cheap and nasty and un-safe pile of cheap plastic crap. Wall boxes and sockets crumble in your hand, the wires come loose from their useless fixings, everything is on long spurs with not a thought to the load on that spur. They use the MCB as a default safety net "don't worry if you put to much load it will trip". I cannot understand the rules that the EU put in place when most of these Med based countries just ignore them. Well that's off my chest now. Thanks for reading.
