Is anyone going to comment that the designer of that stacking system should take a good share of the blame, for creating a system which completely collapses with a small nudge from a forklift? Which should be an expected accident at some stage….

Remind me again how the EU was designed…

Yes, agree with DG (partially) – that is, clearly, negligently fragile.

I disagree that there was a ‘designer’ as opposed to some over-qualified (MBA, Tim N?) idiot, who told some experienced warehouse manager something along the lines of “I don’t care what you think you know, do it my way!)

We can take that opinion further in the field of ‘intelligent design’ – the attempt by Southern US fundamentalists to argue in favour of direct creation by a deity rather than evolution. In many ways Man could be seen as a rather poor design – prone to wars and all kinds of sin…

I recall J L Mackie’s point in the 1970s, addressing the Problem of Evil by stating that Man could have been designed better….
