You're also more likely to die slipping on a wet floor and hitting your head on a sharp corner than you are sitting on your sofa and having a piano be dropped through the roof of your house on top of you.
Does that mean you should sit on the sofa all day and not risk getting up in case the floor's wet and you don't notice?
If the chance goes from exceptionally slim to fairly slim, it really doesn't mean you should decide not to risk it.
Now then, I can't say for sure that this is akin to the situation between Pakistan and the UK, but it sure as damn well seems like it to me.
