What went wrong?

Here once more we have a good example of the "we’ve got to blame someone" society that we live in.
Four competitors on the Great North Run unfortunately died during the event.

"Who is responsible for advising runners of their training regime?"
"Why weren't people warned about the forthcoming warm, humid conditions?"

For fucks sake people, their deaths were nothing more than a tragic accident. No more, no less.
These guys knew the risks of long distance running and I am sure their training was up to the required standard. If it was not, that was entirely down to them.
Why in this politically correct world do we have to apportion blame to every single untoward incident?

Let us all make a combined effort to revive that underused word,

ACCIDENT

Absolutely agree, seems everything is someone's fault these days. What became of "Shit happens. Deal with it, get over it, move on."

Had an accident, then phone parrasites direct.

The trouble is to many people want somethink for nothing

But if people are responsible for their actions they won't be able to cope and won't always be smiling...!

Unfortunately, we live in a society of 'ambulance chasing'.
Makes me sick.
Now who can I sue?
