A lack of perspective.

So it may be a product of all that BBC safety training, but while watching a set of people attempting to climb up a stone pedestal to pull down a statue of the man that's been oppressing them with fear, torture, execution and much more, my instinctive thought is 'be careful! don't fall off - you could get hurt!'

Oh, I know *exactly* what you mean. I'm worrying that if that statue falls on someone, it could really nastily chafe, don't you think?

I was in a BBC Canteen trying to discuss the future of the Casualty website with some PR people, and the pesky old TV kept interrupting our train of thought with breaking news of the liberation of Baghdad. As I left the meeting I quipped to the Safety geezers from the Drama department that it looked like a Health and Safety nightmare. They wryly observed that a full risk assessment had clearly not been completed.

The UN should ship emergency pads of form HSE B1-11 immediately before someone gets seriously hurt and the allies find themselves subject to a Health and Safety Executive investigation. Those guys are like wolverines.
