A Gillian Boyes, Chief Executive of the Funeral Directors Association, writing a guest piece in The Listener recently, declared having your funeral paid for by everyone else is a fundamental human right.
Personally I think Funeral Directors providing free funerals to everyone is a fundamental human right. Perhaps we could have a referendum on who’s right; Gillian or me.
There’s a common denominator to these ever new fundamental human rights inventors. Usually they have a financial interest in their advocacy, as is the case with this latest effort. An added explanation is stupidity.
