Unfortunately there are a lot of views nationally that subscribe to the 'he did it, he knew what he was doing' attitude.

How awfully wrong they have it got. The very people who have endorsed the right to drink (government) have done a very public u-turn - quite rightly.

But do not punish this young man in this way to gather the momentum. The lad was 22. He has made a mistake - a mistake that half of the judging crowd could make.

So don't sit on your high horses moralising the choice of qualified doctors who are merely exorcising the governments new policy, allowing a young man to die in the name of it's 'tough stance' approach on alcohol.

Yes there are worthy people in tragic circumstances that require this attention and quite rightly.

No argument from me there. But to deny this very ill lad on a policy switch by the government is outrageous.

And by illness, I don't just mean physically either - he was ill.

Good god, the lad had an obvious problem.

How any westernised human beings could sit there and debate this 22 yr old man rotting away, on conflicting principles that have recently been put in place, is beyond me...by all accounts, he wanted to reverse it!

I am saddened.

And if that's the tough stance this government want to make on their latest venture - then they sadly have got it morally wrong in the highest order.

Take duty off it, if it's a free for all!

PS I wonder if this policy would hold 'credibility' if it was their son or daughter.'

RIP mate
