I read that this bloke, who has terminal motor neurone disease, has lost his High Court battle to get the Law on assisted suicide altered so his missus can slip him the drugs, and he is then allowed to ‘die in peace’.
Sorry, but that is complete and utter balderdash and codswallop.
He can commence committing suicide tomorrow morning, and there is sweet f**k-all anyone can do about it. He refuses all sustenance, all drinks; and he goes down the tubes in four or five days. It is ‘dead’ straightforward. But he wants the ‘easy option’, and gets all hot and bothered because the judges won’t fall in line. He can end his ‘suffering’ in a week or less; but will not go for the legal option because it takes a conscious decision to starve yourself to death, and he just wants the ‘bypass’.
Sorry, mate, but its either Dignitas or self-suicide. Parliament and the Courts have chosen wisely, so either shut up and starve; or book a quick visit to Switzerland!
