The Man on the Clapham Omnibus

The ‘Man on the Clapham Omnibus’ is an hypothetical reasonable, ordinary person used in English law courts as a standard to judge the actions of real people in given situations — particularly to determine negligence or liability. For example, Would The Man on the Clapham Omnibus foresee that his broken gate might injure the neighbour’s dog?

With so many lives and livelihoods on the line, can you imagine the pressure if the Man on the Clapham Omnibus were a real person?
