Trying to keep this short customer had a leak in her bathroom which required the downstairs ceiling to be pulled down and replaced.
In doing so this junction was found, the house was re-wired 5 years ago
and certificated! the problem I have is I need to reposition some of the lights in the ceiling it will probably test up ok, just want to know how I stand do you leave it or try and make it good ? the electrician has stated that this is perfectly acceptable

That is totally unacceptable. Conductors and terminations must be correctly contained, that would not include unenclosed block connectors. Wrapping it with insulation tape makes absolutely no difference. I would question the competence of anyone claiming to be an electrician who says that is acceptable.
It is worrying what else is hidden like that.

I have spoken to the customer and she has told me the electrician and the guy who signed the work off are coming round to have a look but as said they don’t see a problem
Well I must say they have some front
How could that be acceptable
Kinda makes a mockery of the trade
and the governing bodies

"The Electrician" and I use the title with tongue in cheek is talking out of his or her backside, needs sorting properly, as it stands it's diabolical. who ever did this wants seeing too.

As previously stated if they feel that is acceptable then their competence is in question. If they are not willing to rectify the situation and to be honest I wouldn't want them to you have made the first steps in lodging a complaint to their scheme provider, that being you approach them first for a solution.
