Dying for a drink

How easy it can sometimes be nowadays, to listen to a locked-in patient’s silent answers to questions! (If the doctor can be bothered, that is, because he cares what his patient thinks and is feeling.)

Dying for a drink isn’t a pleasant way for anyone to be forced to spend Christmas, but it is the fate chosen by his British NHS doctors, his wife, and the British judiciary, for one unfortunate Polish fellow, despite the objections of the Polish government and his Polish mother and two sisters.  This patient has been prescribed death by thirst.  The slow taking of his life began yesterday, a Christmas present for him which he might well have said was unwanted, if only he had been asked.

To describe dying of thirst – not a nice way to go by all accounts (even when it’s not Christmas) – as “euthanasia”, is something of a euphemism.  But it appears to be the best treatment the British NHS can offer this unfortunate patient, or so they told the courts.  I am suspicious that the NHS didn’t try all that hard to discover the patient’s own preferences as to how and when he’d like to die.  As you will learn, if you continue reading, there was quite a lot the NHS could have tried, if they’d wanted to find out what the patient thought and how he felt about his situation.

Star post

“Mummy-eee … it said on the news that Boris Johnson had acted unlawfully.  Does that mean he’s a crook and will have to go to prison?”

“I don’t know, darling.  Mr Corbyn and his party will have to decide that.  Let’s wait and see what they say.”

The police are NOT “the law”

Star post

It is possible to take the police to court.

A police officer slagged me off in writing in 2014.  I sued the chief constable for libel in 2015.  It has taken a while, but I have finally won a retraction of the false accusations made against me, plus some money, plus my legal costs.  Suing the police involved a lot of waiting, but not a huge amount of work.

SCOTT’S LAW

Star post

The late Scott Douglas Routley had a nasty road traffic accident around the turn of the century, which damaged his brain.  By 2012, Scott had been comatose, persistently vegetative, “locked-in” – or however you want to put it – for 12 years.   He couldn’t move, or talk. Continue reading

Gagged Dad’s law

This post is sometimes pinned to the top of the blog.

Star post

The grievance of guest blogger Gagged Dad, the author of

Two year-old’s contact stopped with homophobic dad

is mentioned in all of these posts

After a court case in the UK that lasted more than four years, Gagged Dad’s grievance became expressed as an application to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).  The important pages of that ECtHR application, outlining the facts and putting the legal arguments, are here.

Stop gender fraud!

Star post

 

 

 

Should a bloke be allowed to know if his “girlfriend” (or “bride”) is also a bloke?

“O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!”

Transgenderism is gender fraud.  Fraud always has victims.

This post links to a 2005 court case you probably haven’t read about yet.
