This is going to be my new way of life.

Still cross today that Rachael Maskell, the York Labour MP, voted against the assisted dying bill yesterday. Not seeing much about dignity and choice in her blog post.

I understand her concerns that the bill is flawed, but it is clear from her post that she doesn't support it even in principle.

It's all well and good saying we instead need to increase quality of life for people who are dying, but surely the two aren't mutually exclusive.

And just because someone has been given six months to live, doesn't mean that they will choose to die. Many won't. But the key is choice.

If someone is suffering unbearably, with no chance of recovery, the one thing we should be able to give them is dignity.

Another interesting development. It's pretty shitty that the rest of us who are aware of our hypos have to go without, though. We'll just carry on losing our sight, kidney function, limbs...
