A duplicitious commission

Cranmer (here) has it about right on the subject of  Lord Falconer's pseudo-commission on assisted suicide. The idea to hand pick the members of the 'commission' in order to produce a predetermined result must have seemed an excellent strategy.  Except for one thing - the process was utterly dishonest and transparently so.
Not for nothing, some might think, was Lord Falconer a member of one of the most duplicitious and downright nasty British governments in modern times, one which, we should never forget, was so desperate to gain and then cling on to office that it took the black arts of political spin to such a level that political life itself has been contaminated for generations.
