Sitting in the Boggartblog editorial office the other day, chewing the fat, our finger nails , the table, well we had run out of biscuits, and the topic of conversation turned to the plight of Tony Nicklinson and the High Court's decision not to allow others to help him end his life.
"It's God's will that he is here, if God had wanted him to die he would be dead now." seems a reasonable paraphrase of some people's views on the matter.
But we argued, it's only man's intervention that kept him alive after his stroke, surely if he wants to die he should be allowed to.
Then yesterday came the news that Mr. Micklinson had died, peacefully at his home.
Makes you wonder, is there a god after all?
