Did anyone see Horizon last night? Michael Portillo was looking for the most humane way to execute a human. Presumably after working with Maggie all those years it was something that crossed his mind a lot. He "researched" all of the current methods in use in the USA, including hanging, cyanide gas, electricution (sp?), lethal injection and hypoxia via different methods. I thought it was all a bit school projecty (for a rough school obviously) until we saw him in the altitude training chamber, happily becoming less and less coherent to the point where he was being told to flick a switch or he'd die and he couldn't understand the instruction. Quite disturbing! Then at the end he spoke to a USA govt advisor suggesting that nitrogen gas provides a cheap, reliable and painless solution to execution and would they consider. The bloke was disgusted, saying that it'd be inhumane to the victims of the crimes the criminal had perpetrated, and that a euphoric death is the last thing they should be given. Did anyone see it? What did you think?
