What is a "mobile appliance"?
The common types of equipment within the 4th Ed. CoP are, "portable", "movable", "hand held", "stationary" and "fixed"
And what is your appliance?
a truss judging by some of the posts.

Can you still get Bonios? I remember them from my childhood when we had a Golden Retriever, and I quite liked to nibble a Bonio...

Is your leg part of the body ???
Yes, but my body does not use protection class II as defined by IEC61140, and my legs are not made to BS1363. I don't have an earth lead either, so I must be class 0 or III. Can anybody read the label on my back to see if I'm SELV?

Anyway, it seems there are dodgy plugs in circulation that are rewirable but have a plastic earth pin (officially called an ISOD - insulated shutter-opening device). This configuration is not permitted by BS1363 even for class II applications. If the plug is rewirable it must have a metal earth pin.
