@M0YNG I had a cable do this exact thing a while ago.
No evidence the cable was ever actually soldered despite solder filling the end of the plug section!

@vfrmedia This looks like a pretty normal non-armoured cable. As a one-off it's not really a problem but I can see it getting worse, and this is on the road that leads to the Royal Crescent from the Circus so it gets a LOT of footfall in summer.

@M0YNG ahh right, so maybe you need to put that in a cron!

I'm sorry Europe, and I'm sorry UK.
Personally I think us leaving Europe is foolish, and harmful to both sides.
Whatever the faults of either side, we did, and do, great things together and I'm sure we can work better together than apart.
I think it's easier to affect change from within, but I really hope we can continue to work together.
When you read the news, remember many of us in the UK do not want this.
Most of all, be kind.
That's what we need most right now.
