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.

n one scene of the programme, due to air on BBC3 this month, the lever of the machine is pulled to deliver a fatal dose, killing Harrison's next door neighbour in seconds.

Another scene shows Harrison's friend telephoning him from a pub with a potential client. 'He's got stomach cancer. How fantastic is that?' he says.

Last year a Europe-wide poll showed that nearly three-quarters of British people are in favour of legalising assisted suicide.

Looks like suicide is better than the alternative of living broke with substandard health care and misery in the UK.......and of course, being the target of youth gangs who do home invasions of the 'elderly' since they are utterly defenseless in 'gun free' UK where only the perps have the weapons.
