That's because they fit virtually all ordinary mains sockets across
continental Europe, that happen to be compatible to the common UK shaver
socket for 2-pin unearthed (class II) appliances. So manufacturers simply
do not bother making a special version of shaver charger plugs just for
the UK. The same applies to toothbrushes.
