Paul, a Gulf War veteran and police officer, was knocked off his motorbike in a head-on crash last July and has been in a minimally-conscious state ever since.
Hope of a full recovery is very slim, and he may live for a further 10 years in this condition. According to his wife Lindsey, Paul has been fiercely independent all his life and would not want to be kept alive in this state. However, Paul never put his feelings into writing, and now Lindsey is forced to fight in court to be able to withdraw his life support – something she strongly believes Paul would have wanted.
Sadly, we cannot avoid all accidents. But to avoid more cases like Paul’s we must ensure that everyone is aware just how important it is to plan ahead and record your wishes in a legally binding way (something our sister charity Compassion in Dying can help with).

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:
1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
