Sadly it's Men's Shed Charity and has had to close due to the coronavirus, which is a bummer.

Joking aside that flex would probably pull 26a without too much trouble

I have seen an old JW video showing 1mm/1.5mm solid taking about 50a before it started to bubble and smoke

A pointless label, and it's wonky

Pointless?
Probably!
but if I hadn't done it, someone would have complained!

Pointless is obviously just my opinion, but I do have a particular hatred of labels that nobody will ever read/will ignore, aren't required, state the obvious or just make a neat job look messy.

You are not alone.
In one building I regularly work in they have
-a locked door with a neat, clearly legible, label on it identifying it as the electrical intake. Seems pretty self explanatory yes? No, some muppet with a clipboard from head office came round and insisted that this bright yellow 'warning high voltage' sticker be put on the door.
-doors opening into a cable riser on each floor, no DBs or anything else in there, just a couple of trays and some trunking, the doors are kept locked and everyone who needs to know what's in there knows. Along comes the clipboard wielding womble and now there's these hideous (wonky) yellow stickers warning the world of the high voltage inside.

Arrh

I hate that warning label, it's the worse one of all the ones we're supposed to add!

At least the others make some sense.

Should have gone with the "stairs can go down as well as up" option

More useful than the wiring colours!!
