Miss Edwards' bequest, described here (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-23691209), is reported to contain the following phrase: “...in their absolute discretion to use as they may think fit...” 

You could probably assume that when the deceased made her will, leaving money to the government, she did not expect that the story would be splashed over the press and that the money would be claimed by the government and then returned!

It is probably a good reminder though to think about whether the wording of your Will actually reflects your wishes for your estate, to ensure that your executors can carry out those wishes on your behalf.
