Liverpool Care Pathway - A Tragedy Of Errors

Euthanasia has slipped in like an old friend at the back door and awaits only the nod to be welcomed into the parlour.

Medical mass killing has proceeded as a connived strategy which, according to the NCPC, is only halfway there.

Down at Tiverton, Deep in the Heart of Wessex, they've been having trouble with those forms.

This is yesterday's Mail...

They have been warned. How will they decide?
“But here must end the story of my life,
And happy were I in my timely death
Could all my travels warrant me they live.”

― Will Shakespeare from 'The Comedy of Errors'
