The forces that govern our  lives, leave very little for our limited choices. At the very best, probably the most important notion of free will, is embodied in the pursuit of the choices whose ends are wealth and power. Both these can be gained with some hard work, and lost overnight with none, beginning from a clean slate.
Of all the other choices, good health, ones’  partner, education, cleanliness are ultimately the only choices that lead to eternity, through the children, and happiness where there’s trust and love. The rest, the car, the house, the boat, are all as mutable as the wealth and power, and only important for comparisons in the base and tragic focus on a pecking order that compels many to seek  social acceptance with a multitude whose friendship thaws with the loss of status.
Rules, Logic and the Law,
Cases with Met Police & the CPS, Transport for London, Local Ombudsman, Amtrak Express Parcels Ltd, Romania and EU enlargement, fallacious sophistry and abuse of duty using mendacity while ignoring contradictions. Balk logic.
When someone tells you they are about to tell you he truth, doubt it. When they say they will set up an independent enquiry, paid for by the taxpayer, appointments leading to the purse strings of government to investigate the government or else a local authority, doubt it. The term independent means only that party engaged is at the time, self governing, once appointed he/she will be subject to all the forces of employment that accompany the source of the purse., Every person subject to authority of another understands these forces without explanation. If you wish a continuance of pay, you seek to satisfy the controlling purse holder not the diffused source.
All large  organisations tend towards conformity, and this results in a standard set of rules template driven to form categories. If you don’t fit, then you will be squeezed into the mould rather than there be a variation of the rule or its inflexible.
Truth, the Whole truth and
Nothing but..', is best,

While 'Truth and Nothing
but..', leaves out the rest.
Law – By Questor ©
Might’s not right, where
argument's not treason,
Treason's his who's Might,
denies good reason.
