I would avoid electrical cheap items at all costs especially like plg and plug sockets.
These items are normally made in some far eatern country with very poor standards.
If terminal tollerances are hit and miss they could be more of a fire hazard.

Stick with items made in the UK or made on behalf of a well known brand like MK or Crabtree.
Cheap is not always to best way especially when electricity is involved.

Shouldn't they adhere to UK standards to be legally sold here?

They should but the standards are unfortunately not that tight they look more at general safety like no sharp edges/will not fall apart in your hand type thing. These places also get items from the "grey manufacturing" one reson they are so cheap. They also as with any highstreet store be duped into bulk buying something that is not quite what it seems.
I love the £1 shops but from experience and being an electrician and some of the things I have seen, there are some things I would never choose the cheaper option.

Forgot was going to post this as thought it was a good deal because they are MK yep thats right i said MK i was suprised myself the 99p shop would have such a good quality manufacturer.

From memory they only had light switches 2 way & 3 way and as mentioned aeriel outlets removeable face plates for painting ie no masking around the switch - brushed S/S and a brushed bronze colour - Newcastle, Staffs branch i saw them in :):)
