All of the above.
RFC is likely to be around for 50 to 75 years at a minimum, untill all current properties get refurbed /refitted /demolished.

CLICK must be planning / looking at something that would make radials possible without having to use a 50 way D.B

My Son has just bought a 4 bedroom house in the U.S.A, it's got 3 D.B with a total of 58 circuits in them.
All sockets are on radials

What a ridiculous, narrow minded question!

You clearly don't have a clue what you are talking about!

Any half decent electrician uses both types of circuit, choosing whichever one best suits the particular installation they are working on.

It can't be an either/or question. There are questions of suitability....certainly in my opinion. Are Click bringing out a 'radial only' range?

'Prefer' rather than 'use', perhaps?.....but it's still suitability.

I think they are trying to discourage people from buying their products by demonstrating their complete lack of understanding of the trade they supply materials to.

No planning. Just looking at what you all think. There is no wrong answer! :smile:

This is a very valid answer! Just a post to see what the majority say. Interesting to see if people do pick one of the other or whether they'd agree with your statement of it not being an either or question.

Fair enough. Problem with your question is that both are used. It may be a preference or it may be designated.
I've no doubt, though, you'll succeed in getting a fair bit of attention with your 'question'.:)......especially if the 'anti ring brigade' catch on.
