    couldn't really hear what he was saying, but after wondering why he was drawing round the box you suddenly see what's coming like a runaway train..

    EDIT: just looked up and WTF did that cable come from haha

    I have shown this to many people the joke is he actually thinks he has done a good job. I actually tried to contact him to hurl abuse at him with no success.

    That's a right abortion of a job if ever I saw one, it takes the trade "Electrician" to a new level, bet they get loads of work, not

    I hope he has amazing legal insurance. Very irresponsible of him to tell people to "have a go" and call them if they get stuck. Nor does he mention anything about notification, by time they've paid to notify to "have a go" they'd have spent a lot more than getting someone in

    Unfortunately that's how people think these days. Oh Electrical is a doddle, Brown to Brown. Earth to Earth and blew to bits. The amount of DIY Donuts who try explaining how they have done a job and then say "Huh all this Apprentiship Bollox". I then look at there install while there waving a shitty Nokia in my face. Hold on mate. You've fed a electric shower in 2.5mm?

    £85 minimum charge and a 'special offer' to replace an existing socket for a USB version for £50, not cheap is he !
