Nitschke opts for comedy over medicine

Euthanasia campaigner Dr Philip Nitschke has won the right to re-apply to practise medicine, but says he has no immediate plans to do so while he tries his hand at comedy.

Dr Nitschke, who is in the UK preparing to perform at the Edinburgh Festival, has welcomed the NT Supreme Court decision to overturn a  Health Professional Review Tribunal ruling linked to the suicide of Perth man Nigel Brayley.
