Quick as you can, lads. We’re on a price here.

Writing on the circuits sticker (with a sharpy) AND using the little pictures. That’s classy.

What’s a “Coker”?

SORRY.
It was a bring your child to work day, so I brought my 7 year old Grandson and left him to it.

I thought he'd done a pretty good job considering.:D
 
I dint know what’s more horrific, the state of the wiring rats nest or the fact the dumb ass left an unused mcb in the board.
I would have had that straight out and in my sky rocket...
 
We stopped doing new builds years ago, couldn't compete with £1375 for a 3 bed semi!
At those sort of prices you will go bust pretty quickly

There is a polish sparks near me who offers a full house rewire for £1000 all in

It’s pointless exercise even trying to compete at those rates By the Time you have purchased all branded materials there is barely a couple hundred quid left for labour
 
Looks like a classic case of the Boss of the company being assessed by the NICEIC and employing Dave from the pub to do the work, awful job. And he has stripped the Tand E by using the cpc to rip the sheathing away.
This is a terrible installation I agree but what's wrong with stripping T&E like that? It's the way I was told/taught to do it in college too and I always just assumed it was the norm

leaves it dog rough. best way is with an electrician's knife or these:

disclaimer.... pic shows cheap set. mine are Klein, but the pic is copyright so can't paste. :p:p:p.

Obviously the Tutor hasn't been shown / told how to Strip T and E properly, so he/she passes on this rough method to the unsuspecting Students. Oh forgot to say I personally would NOT use a Stanley type knife, the blade is far to thin for this work, you need a decent folding knife oe one of the many fixed blade Electricians knifes of which there are many on the market CK do a decent folding knife, about a tenner I think
