The thought of traveling to an industrial estate in Zurich to commit suicide could only have been invented by JG Ballard - it's surreally dystopian.

Almost comic too. A youngish man with a terminal illness went with his family to Dignitas to finish it off. They were in the bedroom having a last conversation when the nurse came and suggested that the time was nigh. Could I have a bit more time? asked the young man. The nurse looked at his watch and shook his head. The next one's due in twenty minutes I'm afraid......
