1. (law)reasonable steps taken by a person or an organisation to avoid committing a tort or an offence

    • The company had taken all reasonable precautions and exercised due diligence to avoid the offence.

  2. (business)a careful investigation of the state of a business by a person or organisation that is thinking of buying it or investing in it

    • Investors are encouraged to perform their own due diligence on a company


action that is considered reasonable for people to be expected to take in order to keep themselves or others and their property safe:


Before making any transaction, it is always essential that it is the best, most suitable, and sustainable for every party.

You don’t pick up any loaf of bread in the bakery if you have a gluten allergy!

You don’t sign a deal with a company for delivery in the future if you don’t think it’ll still be there.

Neither would you sign a to supply/receive more than the other party can supply/use.

However, the British government has consistently done just that.

There are an appalling number of examples.

Employing Border Force officials who are illegal immigrants: -.

“A Border Force official has been arrested for being an illegal immigrant.” I wonder who was prosecuted for that one!


Police Officers with Criminal Convictions: –

Police forces across the UK employ at least 211 officers and PCSOs who have been convicted of criminal offences, a Sky News investigation has found.

But the number is likely to be much higher as just a third of UK police forces revealed how many of their serving officers had broken the law.


Whilst it is fair and appropriate to state that a Criminal conviction is, in itself, not an impedance to joining the police force, one does have to ask if all of these are appropriate.

The article does go on to state in one Police force alone –

  • Two officers have been convicted of burglary

  • Two officers have been convicted of common assault

  • Two officers have been convicted of theft

  • Four officers have been convicted of disorder

  • One officer has been convicted of a S39 assault

  • One officer has been convicted of criminal damage

  • One officer has been convicted of obtaining money by deception

  • One officer has been convicted of careless driving

Or is this taking the old adage of ‘you need a thief to catch a thief’ too far?

Wayne Couzens

Wayne Couzens Is the police officer, in the Met Police’s parliamentary and diplomatic protection unit, who raped and killed Sarah Everard.

Couzens has a string of sexual offences dating back to 1995. He even flashed people at a fast-food restaurant days before murdering Sarah.

It is then completely unbelievable that he passed police vetting to join both the Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) and the Met. Let alone to become an armed officer!

Surely this is tantamount of a dereliction of duty by the vetting offiers.

‘Carillion was working on 420 public sector contracts when it went bust.’

‘Carillion underbid to make a £15m annual loss on a prisons contract.’

‘The liabilities of Carillion’s 27 UK-based construction companies are estimated at £6.9bn.’

‘It’s worth pointing out that Carillion’s finances must have been of the basket case variety given that it went straight into liquidation.’

‘Many would have expected an administration, but this morning’s news confirms the business had no assets to sell.’


The Financial Reporting Council has sanctioned KPMG LLP, KPMG Audit PLC & Messrs Meehan & Turner for their lack of supervision in auditing Carillion.


Why did Carillion crash?

Fairly simply – it borrowed too much. Between 2009 & 2017, its loans increased just shy of 3 times. Whilst its long-term assets grew by 14%. (Over leveraged). It also effectively borrowed from suppliers by not paying them. This tool is used by several large corporations, especially smaller companies. The smaller company thinks it’s getting a deal with a big company that will aid its expansion, but in reality, because the larger company fails to pay on time, the smaller company gets into cash flow problems and then tends to contract or, sadly, go out of business altogether.

Did the government keep giving Carillion contracts because it had such a long working relationship, or should it have investigated the company’s finances to ascertain its financial strength – a fundamental exercise at a business school?

Troubled outsourcer Capita drafts in Carillion adviser Lazard to advise on financing options

The outsourcer has tried to distance itself from Carillion, which collapsed into liquidation just months after issuing its profit warning. Yet the hiring of Lazard may be seen as a concession that the company is in turmoil.

After Capita’s latest foul-up, is it time for the government to stop outsourcing altogether?

How many more contracts should the government trust Capita with?


The Post Office saga is now well known.

I still cannot understand how the Post Office / Fujitsu allowed the software to be installed, knowing it was faulty, and then prosecuted all those Sub-postmasters.

Where did all the money go?

Who is paying the compensation – the Post Office, the Taxpayer, or Fujitsu?

So many questions – so few answers!

Why are the British Government still using Fujitsu?

HMRC, the Bank of England and the Financial Services Authority all signed contracts with Japanese IT firm Fujitsu after its role in the Horizon scandal was made known.“


The Horizon sandal raised its head in 1998 and carries on – inculcating the Blair, Brown, Cameron, May, Johnson, Truss and Sunak governments – suggesting that we cannot trust one party more or less than the other!).

Fujitsu was the company behind the failed NHS software debacle, and then they sued HMG. (then Her Majesty’s Government).

Immigration Visas


Magicians rely on sleight of hand or distraction – look at this hand whilst the other does the ‘magic.’

When in a discussion (an argument), some people use a distraction to off-foot you.

It is often said that when the Government publish good news – what is it hiding?

Is Rwanda just that – a distraction?

Whilst there were 44,460 people detected arriving by boat last year


There were 1.2 Million legal migrants in the year ending 2023.

So when David Cameron talked about lowering migration to 10s of thousands, we all thought he meant a year – he didn’t. He meant a month!



Whilst the government is spending so much time and money on the Rwandan deal, which may or may not happen, that, at most, would only take some of the illegals.

Still leaving 672,000 net legal immigrant (year to June 2023)

If the boat people were genuine asylum seekers, why did they ditch their papers, making it so much harder to prove their case?

Perhaps we ought to treat those who come into the country with their papers more favourably than those who don’t?
