GeneralDomestic wiring question of the day Pin

So, in my old house you could get a small 'shock', although that's probably a strong word for it from touching the metal light switches. It would be most noticeable if you gently stroked the switch (there are worse perversions) as a sort of fuzziness in your fingertips. One of those electrical tester screwdrivers lights up when you touch it.

Said light switches were earthed, but I guess it means the earth wire wasn't actually attached to the Earth and was floating.

My questions is where the electricity came from. I was thinking a short via a very high resistance somewhere but then I actually wondered whether it could be caused by induction, the wiring in the house acting as a very spread-out transformer as such.

Any thoughts from the electrically minded?
Regards,
Rob Philpott.
