British people are the second biggest group of “suicide tourists”, according to a new study, which shows that the number of people traveling to assisted dying clinics in Switzerland has doubled in three years.
More than 600 people traveled to Switzerland for help taking their own lives between 2008 and 2012

It's been going on for years as technically in the UK helping someone to kill themselves could land them in court (it wasn't that long ago commiting suidice was illegal but i'd of loved to see a prosecution) so they need to go somewhere that will allow them to have the freedom of choice as to how and when to end it all, these people are normally the sort who are in the final terminal stages of their illness and want the dignity of being able to bow out peacefully not spending possibly another 6 months on a drip full of morphine writhing in pain which if the same person was a cat/dog they'd of been put to sleep with no problem
