It also has a part insulated earth pin...not allowed and not part of BS1363. Also the live and neutral pins are too close to the edge of the plug. I think it should be 15mm clearance ...

however the listing states London. Is it likely that it came direct from China via a London agent? It only took two days so most likely came from London through an agent. Does that mean the importer is also the retailer?
