The law has areas of white, black, and grey. Most of us ensure that we remain in the white areas, and assume that any one who does us grievous harm will be considered to reside in a black area. In this way we believe that we are behaving reasonably to our fellow man, and that if anyone harms us then we will get redress from the law. Unfortunately it sometimes transpires that we find ourselves, possibly with some adversary, in a grey area. In this case we seek the advice of a trained legal mind. This approach to the legal system, of course, assumes that we know the location of the white-grey, and the black-grey boundaries with a sufficient degree of approximation to position ourselves. These boundaries are, however, time- and space-dependent. Laws are changed by parliament, hopefully with sufficient publicity and at a slow enough pace for us to be aware of the changes. They also differ from place to place, as some luckless tourists have discovered.
