    Gordon now wants your body parts:

    Seriously, is there no limit to the reach of the state that he wants?

    "The UK Organ Donation Taskforce said assuming organs could be used unless people opted out was unlikely to boost donation rates."

    And with good reason - the organs needed belong to people on life support. Its their families who need to be convinced.

    So why legislate?

    My ex-brother-in-law gave my ex-wife a kidney - it was very beneficial for both of them.

    Your organs are not required until after death. So far.

    Seeing as the Chinese are most likely to come out of this financial trouble on top I'd be more than a little concerned about the future uses of this lovely piece of Brownstuff making it on to the statute books.

    It happens after you get more than 997 demerits, then one faces losing 3 organs (usually eye, kidney and testicle) to the protien bank.

    If the PM is lying in a bed desperately needing an organ donation within hours or death, and a person comes in from a road crash that may survive, but is a match for Gordon, it is the duty of that person to die and keep our wondrous leader alive.
    He did not give consent and could have survived but nobody will know under Gordon's new rules. That person could be you!!
