I'm rather dumfounded by this story
Belgian rapist and murderer to be put to death by lethal injection
Frank Van Den Bleeken won right to euthanasia after claiming he could not face rest of life in jail

A rapist and murderer is to be put to death in Belgium this week, despite Europe’s ban on the death penalty, after a court granted him the right to euthanasia.

Frank Van Den Bleeken, 52, is not physically ill but claims his “psychological suffering” is unbearable and that he would prefer to die than spend more of his life behind bars.

He says he has no prospect of ever being released from prison as he cannot overcome his uncontrollable sexual impulses, and that he does not wish another two or three decades in jail.

His application to die was accepted by Belgium’s Federal Euthanasia Commission in September, and over the weekend, official gave approval for him to be taken to a specialist clinic on Sunday, where he will be killed by lethal injection.

Belgium legalised euthanasia in 2002, and is one of only three countries to allow the practice, the others being the Netherlands and Luxembourg. More countries, including Switzerland and some states of America, allow doctors to assist suicide in certain circumstances.

Even Kay Burley is calling out Ms Pearson for this

When people on Twitter are agreeing with Kay Burley that you're basically a shit person then you're really, really fucked.

There's a complete failure of logic and - yes I'm going to say it - common sense from some of the arseholes commenting on those tweets. Disgusted doesn't even come close to how I feel. These miserable excuses for human being will be soon be invoking the spirit of the Blitz without a trace of irony. Remember that.

When you're being told by Newton-Dunn you've got no class it's time for self-reflection

UKIP waste no time. Defence spokesman Mike Hookem puts out release saying #Brussels attacks show Schengen is security threat. Distasteful.

It's happening everywhere. Logged onto Twitter, shook my head in disbelief, promptly logged off.

I'm sure there was a time not all that long ago where there was at least a brief period before the political point scoring began. Now it's fucking instant. Literally the first thing a lot people do when a tragedy occurs.
