Just what it says on the tin, a place for all sorts of useful and useless information.

There have been quite a few reports condemning the report by Lord Falconer’s self-styled commission on assisted suicide.
This one has Terry as the evil financier. Can I hear the echo of a "Mahahahaaaa!" ?

Now hyperbole from the Daily Mail
and again here
We have world-leading palliative care which could have ensured her death was comfortable
The norm seems to leave them on trolleys in the corridors of hospitals. Just to show anyone can do Hyperbole :?

"funded by pro-death activists "
"a mentality of aversion to people who suffer"
"celebrities who have more money than sensitivity"

Any of those sound like anyone you know?
Certainly none of the above even begin to represent what Terry has said now or in the past
I LOVE unbiased reporting 8-)

A rather rustic view from just up the road from me concerning legalise assisted suicide*.
I have a feeling Terry would feel quite at home with this type of reporting.

* and obviously a fair poll

Article in the Daily Mail regarding the future of the Falconer report on euthanasia.
I was interested to hear on the news this morning that as an extension to the Donor opt-out they are thinking of keeping people on life support in case their organs would be required at a future time. A sort of delayed euthanasia. Pull the plug on demand.
Coroner's report: Death caused by having his heart and liver removed.

Ian Stewart, rather than Terry, but an excellent article
