Does every plug in UK have its own fuse? In Germany the fuse is centralized and secures the cable. So if 3 plugs in one sockets take to much power the fuse will stop it. -> no hazard

The plug can be inserted to the socket with unfolded shields, that seems to be right. But if you take a look, the power pins are only made of metal at the end. before they get contact in the socket the complete metal part will be hidden by the socket. The only pin made completely of metal is the ground pin. -> no hazard

This IS a genius design.
