Interview With Alex Inglis

May 22, 2010

This is a link to a chilling interview with Alex Inglis, older brother of Tom Inglis, whose mother, Frances, is currently serving a life sentence for his murder.

I say the interview is chilling because Alex says that he considered killing Tom himself.

As I said last year when Same Difference covered the case of Naomi Hill, I can’t understand how anyone who calls themself a parent can consider killing their own child for any reason. How can they live with themselves after making such a choice, when there are loving parents out there who do everything possible to help their severely disabled children to live a good life, yet lose them to severe disability and grieve for the rest of their lives?

    I’d recommend everyone to reserve judgement until you walk a mile in their shoes.

    I am a person with a significant disability and cared for my father for nine years; the lack of help was staggering and whilst I was never in the same position of the Inglis family, my position did lead me to become extremely sceptical about state help, which my father had paid for all his life with a secure belief in the promises made to him by the state, that he would be cared for from the cradle to the grave.
