Eugenicist former Tory MP Matthew ‘Mengele’ Parris wants your elders to die

Former Tory MP turned broadcaster and Times columnist Matthew Parris has outed himself as a eugenicist who wants assisted death for older people:

His claim has attracted outrage:

And so it should. According to his belief, anyone who is no longer able to contribute to society through infirmity or disability should remove themselves from it, to save the rest a bob or two.

The only problem with that is that these people will have paid into the system their whole lives and therefore deserve the benefits that should be considered theirs by right, now they need help to get by.

But let’s get down to the details. Here’s Dr Rachel Clarke to put us all straight:

Astonishingly, we should have seen this coming. Parris was saying the same in 2015.

For the record:

Parris is utterly wrong on this. The old and infirm have as much right to anybody. Perhaps we should invert the argument and say the obscenely rich should go for assisted death so their wealth can be freed up for the good of society?

    Assisted dying is something that I do not like the idea of.

    It is basically pessimistic in nature. Where would be the incentive to develop cures or prevention for diseases if we allow this to go ahead?
