Does a country (and therefore it's Government) have a duty of care towards it's citizens?

If it does, what needs to happen when a country fails in this duty of care?

And how does a country serve out this duty of care in the first place?


As I'm heading for the big 4-0 next year, so in all likelihood I am now over half way through my life on this mortal coil, I think now is probably the right time to start writing a bucket list. So here goes my first attempt (you could probably call this an Alpha version):

  • Visit San Francisco for a holiday.
  • Play in the World Series of Poker Main Event at least once
  • Play the European Poker Tour London Main Event at least once
  • Eat a battered, deep fried Mars or Snickers.
  • Test drive a Chevy Volt electric car.

The blog has been a little quiet lately. This is due to the wonders that are Twitter and Facebook :-)

Basically, I've been spending far too much time on both.

Anyway, if the blog goes quiet again you'll probably find me tweeting over on Twitter. You can find me there at

Site Update


I've moved the database that runs the site and now the site is actually running at a reasonable speed.

Full steam ahead for more blogging :-)
