Ive took all my wires out due to realizing the earth cables only have 1 strand of copper

am i being stupid? because the one on the left looks dangerous, compare it to the live wire's strands

Given this picture is part of a series showing a consumer unit upgrade on another companies website I can only conclude this is a wind up and you are trolling members. And supporting this view is if you were in the game professionally you'd realise by now I hope that most twin and earth cables have a CPC that is a single strand solid copper conductor.

Either you stop trolling members or I can sense an enforced holiday coming on.

Thread closed.
