    You were the one who brought up vacuums, claiming that they were underpowered because of the EU, or some such twaddle.

    Oh, you mean the EU regulation limiting the power consumption on household appliances and lightbulbs. I hope that's the first to bite the dust. If that means I hate British business, good luck with that - it's Phillips who've been the main beneficiary as far as I can see. Their dimmable LED lights are about £6 a pop instead of £1.99 for 3 of the traditional variety. When you've got dozens of the bastard things (remember when those embedded ceiling lights used to be cool?) and most last a few months at best, it gets expensive.
    I need to know what's lacking in your life that you need someone else to legislate as to what you can 'plug in' in your own house?

    My wife doesn’t need a 2kW “massage device”. She’s got me.

    Actually, your wife doesn’t need one either when I’m around...

    How do you manage 2kW output? And surely there'd be some bruising...?

    I'm curious (but not in that way) and so is my wife (possibly not in that way)...
