The socket is probably gunged up. Clean it with a sponge and plenty of soapy water.

Use the old sparks mains tester. Touch the cable to the back of your hand. Not the front, as your hand will contract around it and you will be lucky to live.

Or change the cable and plug on the lamp.

Either way its not my Mums lamp, so it won't ruin my weekend.

You have a short somewhere along the cable. Replace it.

If he had a short in the cable it would blow a fuse in the fuse box (or trip the breaker).

Thought it had?

Must be the wiring at the bulb end of things. Why he wouldn't check that first is beyond me.

Be quiet you.

Anyway, a more pressing matter has developed since yesterdays electrical drama. Got a text from mother earlier. She gave it to somebody to fix. Some man she knows who I never heard of.

They could be having it off. Maybe I should confront the evil witch. Or search her room for evidence
