The first sentence in this BBC interview is:

What is your feeling towards the police? knowing that all this evidence existed, and at the very best and someone had forgotten to look into it, haven’t got the resources to look into it or that this was a total incompetence or

a perversion of justice,


you must be fuming.

'You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink'

You can give someone an opportunity but not force them to take it.
You can’t force someone to make the right decision, even after guidance is given.

It is clearly a literal fact that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.


The conversion of that notion into a figurative phrase was established in the language by the 18th century. 

Thomas Reid’s Essays on the Intellectual Powers of Man, 1786, included this line:

“In every chain of reasoning, the evidence of the last conclusion can be no greater than that of the weakest link of the chain, whatever may be the strength of the rest.”
