From Mrs Elizabeth Wardle Sir: Why should anyone object to the suicide of Frederick West? He has offered his life as some meaure of expiation for his crimes - the greatest price anyone can pay - and has saved the taxpayer the cost of his trail and of keeping him in jail for the rst of his days. If a man with nothing to live for chooses rationally to end his own life, I cannot see why anyone should try to stop him, or regret his death.

Yours faithfully, ELIZABETH WARDLE New Barnet, Hertfordshire
