The countries that allow assisted dying are careful democracies, just like us. It’s not a free for all. There are rules, rules everywhere. Some time ago I set out to track down every rumour of assisted dying abuse on the planet and when electronically cornered, people making allegations of abuse lamely said that it was on the internet. I think everything on the internet is true, don’t you?

Unfortunately, those irrevocably against assisted dying will continue to muddy the waters and so there will continue to be more tragedies like that of Tony Nicklinson and more people trailing off to Dignitas to the embarrassment of the Swiss and the shame of Britain.

Discworld author Terry Pratchett, a long-time campaigner for assisted dying, writes for The Times today
