Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hold your horses: Ireland, north and south are also using  these "type G" plugs, along with Scotland and Wales, who might have very well split from England if things continue to devolve at this rate.

Even on the continent, there are two main standards for outlets (essentially French and German), but German and French engineers have sat at a table decades ago to specify a power cord compatible with both types of outlets. This power cord type has been used all over Europe for donkey's years now.

* Swiss exception may apply.
