    Something a bit more cunning, like a different phase from each plug?

    You don't know if the short loop of cable is 3-core connected to the outgoing cable 3-core. … or if the outgoing cable is 4-core.

    I don't like how the fourth screw slot is at a slightly different angle to the other three.

    Socket on the left is fed in from the back and is separate from the right socket, then using a ‘widow maker’ supplies the circuit extending from the right socket but at the same feeds the standard lamp so that the paramedic can identify the cause of death -
    Yeh, I haven’t a clue!
