Nasty, Brutish, and Wrong

The Guardian published an opinion piece by Kevin McKenna last Saturday: Scotland’s assisted suicide bill is an offence to our human dignity. Frankly, if anything was an offence to human dignity, it was this piece of invective. But then again, McKenna is an executive editor of the Daily Mail in Scotland. Says it all, really. The Guardian should be ashamed at publishing such tripe. I see that the comments pretty much call out the piece for the bullshit it is.

I am thankful that I live in a country where I can ask for a peaceful death, should it prove necessary, and where safeguards exist to protect the vulnerable.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
