From the Daily Mail, an emollient newspaper for those who like to keep their blood pressure low:
The BBC came under fire today for a new sitcom which makes light of assisted suicide.
A new series starring Blake Harrison, of the Inbetweeners, tells the story of three young men who build a suicide machine and offer the ‘service’ to those who wish to end their lives.
But a prominent Tory MP expressed his disgust at the programme’s premise, slamming it for turning suicide into a joke.
Mark Pritchard, MP for The Wrekin, told the Sunday Express: ‘It is a sad fact that assisted dying is now regarded as a ‘revenue stream’ to some foreign clinics and clearly as a matter of fun by some parts of the BBC.’
