“Final Swiss Tour”

Switzerland is a wonderful place to visit, the scenery is fantastic, but if you go on a Warner’s Coach Tour, be very careful where you get off.

Researchers at the University of Zurich found that the number of people travelling to Switzerland to die, because of their lax laws on assisted suicide, have doubled in the years between 2008 and 2012.  During that time 611 people travelled there with a one way ticket.

If the tour bus stops at the Dignitas Clinic, only get off if you are absolutely sure you know what lies ahead.  There are no return tickets from Dignitas.

If Lord Falconer’s Bill in the House of Lords gets approval in Parliament in the next few years, it will not be necessary to travel to Switzerland.

Then free bus passes for older people may take on a whole new meaning in Britain.
