The Lord Chief Justice is apparently sympathetic to assisted suicides.
If he is sympathetic to those of dying of horrible diseases, he should be equally sympathetic to those who choose to live with them; or indeed, have no choice but to have to live with them. Legitimising those who assist gutless cowards (for that is all a wannabe assisted suicide is, a gutless, cowardly control freak who can't handle the facts of life called pain and death taking place on something on their own absolute dictatorial terms) to traipse off to Caritas to be put down like a lame horse is going to do nothing but endanger the lives of those who consider themselves to have more dignity than to subject themselves to a fate that would shame a goldfish; and yes, are proud of the fact that they are alive, and acknowledge that while they are alive they must struggle to live.
I am no longer interested in listening to English liberalism. English liberals gave the world the workhouse. The spirit of English liberalism gave us the abortion holocaust. It is the most destructive force this country has ever known, its touted concern for humanity usually masking some kind of madcap get-rich-quick scheme. To hell with it.
