WITH assisted dying topical, there is a royal precedent. In 1936 when the Queen's grandfather, George V, was expiring painfully from bronchitis, Queen Mary and the future Edward VIII asked his physician, Lord Dawson, not to prolong his suffering. He prematurely ended the king's life with injections of morphia and cocaine. Subsequently in the Lords he campaigned against euthanasia, perhaps because of the ditty: 'Lord Dawson of Penn/ Killed many men./ That's why we sing/ God Save the King.
