There's still no invitation from the Enquiry into Dying in NZ so I probably am not going to have the opportunity to speak to my submission. I'm happy enough to live with that as I am sure I couldn't say anything that hasn't been said already. That Committee is destined to be bored out of its mind if it hears a lot of submissions out of the 21,000 received. And the big question will be, will they or the Government to whom they will eventually report, be able to bite the bullet and acknowledge the vast amount of public opinion in favour of moving towards some kind of assisted death in particular circumstances.
Meanwhile, my PSA is still remaining stable between 24 and 29 over more than seven months this year. That's a huge change since the dramatic increases of 2015. Long may it last.
