You might say you can lock it up and head ashore, just as you would leave the car and head into the shopping centre, but they are not the same.

There is far more of an onus on you to apply a reasonable common sense test, and ask yourself, am I really doing the best thing by all?

With a thudding heart you picture all the damage, engines; electrics; computers; furnishings; all that lovely woodwork ruined!
