Landmark court decision in Western Australia

A LANDMARK court decision has found a Perth nursing home should follow the wishes of a quadriplegic man who wants to die and stop feeding him.

In the West Australian Supreme Court, Chief Justice Wayne Martin said the Brightwater Care Group would not be criminally responsible by ceasing nutrition and hydration through a tube to the stomach of Christian Rossiter, a 49-year-old in their care.

Chief Justice Martin also said any person providing palliative care to Mr Rossiter would not be criminally responsible.

He said it was clear Mr Rossiter had the right to direct his treatment and nutrition and hydration “should not be administered against his wishes.”

Update 16 August

Kyle and Jackie O will be back on air this week. A good thing according to David Penberthy of The Punch in his piece titled ‘I’m glad that this shocking drongo is back on the air’.

I tend to agree with him. You can read his commentary comparing Sandilands to Larry Flynt here http://www.thepunch.com.au/articles/im-glad-that-this-shocking-drongo-is-back-on-the-air.


Call me a wowser but I’m jumping on the anti Kyle and Jackie O bandwagon.

After seeing their despicable antics on the ABC’s Media Watch the other night I am in agreeance with many commentators around the country – get them off the air and keep them there.

Here is the Mediawatch piece:
