Is this legal? (UK electrical appliance question) Answered
Kitewife just bought a Christmas decoration, but when it came out of the bag, the connection was as shown in the image.
The loose wire is already a safety concern, about which I shall be contacting the store, but I also I thought that appliances sold in the UK had to have a plug moulded onto the power lead?
Since the decoration is lit with old-style filament bulbs instead of LEDs, I am wondering if she has been sold something that has been sitting in a warehouse since before the legislation changed?
