Grandparents May Soon Be Extinct in UK

A recent change to UK inheritance law has grandparents running for cover.

The Government said that in the future, children will be allowed to inherit from grandparents who have been killed by their mother or father.

Currently people convicted of murder or manslaughter cannot inherit from their victims, but the law also cuts out the killer's descendants from the line of succession.

Ministers have decided that is unfair - even though one of the country's most senior judges has warned that changing the law could encourage people to kill their parents. [Link]
I agree with the judge. If there's one thing people don't need, it's encouragement to kill their parents.
