I slipped over on an icy pavement... Why didn't the local council spread grit there?
I was late for my appointment... I knew it should have been scheduled for a later time.
My instant barbecue caused a small woodland fire... I didn't see any warning signs at the picnic site and besides who left all those dry pine needles lying around?
The doctor told me I have got lung cancer... The British American Tobacco Company knew about the carcinogenic dangers of smoking their products long, long ago.
I was outed for posting comments about black English footballers online... It's not my fault that social media providers don't vet respondents properly - they are just asking for trouble.
I was charged for storming The Capitol Building... President Trump had called for a response so as an American patriot it was like I was obeying his command.
I lost the presidential election.... The vote was rigged.
