Well said, Baroness Warnock

Refreshing to hear someone talking sense. Whilst the medical profession insists on developing medications to keep us alive whilst being unable to deal with the effects of ageing, there is a studious inability to get to grips with the consequences. The social services play on people's feelings of guilt in order to reduce their provision, and rely on informal care. And the consequences? Generally disastrous, though again, no-one is honest enough to admit it. Thanks to Baroness Warnock for doing so, despite the whines of religionists and the self-interest groups such as the Alzheimers Society.

We need legalised voluntary euthanasia and the sooner the better.
