I'd run the earth wires from the cables direct to the sockets and put
a jumper from the socket to the back box. I wouldn't be at all
suprised to find that you *have* to fit this jumper even with a

A fridge could be very useful to an Eskimo, to stop things freezing.
Might have to reverse the heat pump though. B-)

No, it goes straight to the terminal on the socket on a plastic box.
On a metal box a flying earth lead should go from the terminal on
the socket to the one on the box, to preserve earth continuity if
the screws are lose or not present.
On a light switch it generally serves as somewhere to connect the
earth lead without the possibility of it working lose and making
contact with an energised terminal. If a plastic switch is replaced
with a metal one then the earth lead is also neatly ready to be
connected to the terminal on the switch.
