Domestic abuse works two ways

Published 24/10/2013

YOUR paper said the PSNI attend 60 domestic calls daily. These are the ones we know of, who knows how many go unreported?

Yet your paper saw fit to publish a cartoon depicting a groom, battered by his bride for not booking honeymoon flights.

I can only imagine the outrage if the roles were reversed. George Orwell was correct: 'we are all equal, but some (women) are more equal than others (men)'.
