I understand why they do it Geoff. I was merely remarking that despite both the UK and Greece being in the EU and thus, notionally at least, conforming to the same Health and Safety standards, the Greeks get on with doing something which would get the people responsible into a world of sh!±t in the UK should such a video come to light.
I spent my last 20 years at work trying, successfully luckily, to stay on the right side of the Health and Safety legislation. We even had one very serious dangerous occurrence involving a parked aircraft (or whatever the equivalent of parking is in aviation) in which nobody was injured. I was asked to produce my risk assessment and answered honestly, that the possibility that what had happened could possibly ever happen had not occurred to me. Thankfully my clients agreed that the possibility had never occurred to them either and left it there, after our insurance had paid for the damage of course.
Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.
