MK all the way...Spurs are a dream..Grids are quick,terminal screws rarely chew off.Mcb's used to fit in Merlin kit and vice versa,not sure if they still do tho.And Screwfix knock it all out cheap.

Normally MK. Mind you had bad experience this week with Domestic CU(17th ed!!!!). Seems to be made from cheaper plastic than I remember. Probably in China.

mk having two different sockets (dual earth single earth)is annoying and i find grid switches annoying
also watch out for sharp edges on the sockets

MK cu's are made from slightly cheaper plastic these days, and don't feel quite as solid, but still British made.
