Can someone make sure I made this HV power supply right? Answered

So I'm making an HV power supply from a flyback transformer and a CFL, I need to know that I've wired everythng correctly, and I'm not going to kill everything plugged into the walls in my house when I turn it on.

From left to right is:
Socket, IEC13 (From an old computer power supply)
Switch, rated for mains voltage (from old CRT TV)
CFL circuit

Blue wire is the live and brown is neutral, the red and black connect to the primary coil of the flyback.

All help appreciated, thanks.
