There is no doubt that a lot of BG wiring leaves much to be desired, but so far as I can see a properly wired 2 pin system is as safe as any other. I believe both systems have their drawbacks if misused or not properly wired. I should be interested to hear from anyone who knows different.
Further I should like to know what might be the view of an insurance company if a serious claim is made. To say the UK system exceeds the BG legal requirements might take some proving or even be inadmissable I think. Especially given the, reportedly, somewhat doubtful honesty of some involved in the law in BG.
