They are incapable of carrying out the basic needs of staying alive - If it wasn't for plumbers, they'd have to sit in a field and if it wasn't for electricians they'd have to do it i the dark.

It needs to be said that to carry out many kinds of electrical work requires a registered competant person in the UK and many countries have far more stringent codes. This is in order to comply with building codes,household insurance and potential liability claims and even to enable a dwelling to be sold.

THe Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 place similar restrictions on a householder, especially when concerning pressurized heating systems.

Any fool can change a tap washer or rewire a plug- not many have a comprehensive knowledge of the regulations to to carry out more complex work.
