Paxman: I have no objection to assisted suicide

The show is aided by a wheel, which Paxman spins to generate a new topic of discussion or film clip, and yesterday, at the first daytime show of the festival run, it landed on Death.

He said: “Death is the one thing that awaits everyone of us and of course it is completely unknowable. It seems to me we should all be making some preparation for a decent death, and speaking for myself, I have no objection to assisted suicide, at all.If it requires someone to help you, I think they should be entitled to help you,” reports Phil Millar in The Herald
