DIY gfci extension lead

I just had this idea.
Probably it's a terrible idea.
Can anyone tell me why?
Thanks!

I have no idea what I am looking at. Looks like some sort of power bar?

I don't see any real issue with it. It no longer carries the CE listing/approval that it once had when you cut the cable, but that doesn't make it unsafe.
Here in the US there are plug-in GFI adapters that do the same type of thing. As long as your cables are strain-relieved, connections secure, etc. it looks like you have yourself a GFI protected power strip!

Thanks for the positive answer haha, I wasn't expecting that!
I haven't done it yet but I'm considering it as an option
