 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.
