EU wants one phone plug to rule them all. But we've got a better idea.

"Universal" mains sockets will never be allowed in the UK because they do not meet BS1363, for at least two reasons:

You'd think that after all these years, the EU would have standardised on the UK wall plug/socket combo by now. They are well known for forcing all of the EU to whatever is the "highest" standard, rather than averaging out. See copyright duration as a prime example. the average was 50 years, same as the UK, but we had to switch everyone to 60 years because that was the highest (Germany).
