I understand what you mean about not using ground as current path.

At the dryer electrical connection there is a jumper from ground to neutral so what did this really accomplish?
From what I've read here I assume you don't use residual currant devices much over there?

The more I learn about the power reticulation system used in the States, the more it horrifies me.

We joke about using the earth wire as a neutral return path over here but nobody would actually do it.

It sounds positively 19th century...
