Sounds as though somebody has had some bad experiences with local electricians:

Hmm,
That doesn't sound too cool!.
Maybe the Electricians the guy did ring, didn't like his attitude.

Just a small note about this.
Tradespeople Down-under here are rushed off our feet at the moment.
This is caused by a Building boom as the result of low lending interest rates.
And personally, I'd sooner go and wire a new house, rather than crawl around in an existing house installing a 6mm2 feed for a range or whatever is going on the end of that cable.
Especially if I am going to get whinged at while I'm there!.
This guy sounds like the type that would stand over you and stare at you as you work,
the kind of person that us Electricians just love!.
Finally, I just re-checked that thread, there was someone there that posted a reply that is really hard to read, mainly because they've written it like they were sending an SMS message on a Cellular phone.
I'm sure glad that no-one at ECN does that, it's really annoying.
