Our culture matters more than this!

There is not much in a society which matters more than its culture. Indeed to a great extent the culture of a society describes its character and quality, and defines its boundaries. It is that which makes a society coherent and different from other societies. Our own British culture is much more than either the Royal Opera House or X-Factor. It is the 2000 years or more of shared experience which have shaped us and formed us together. Small groups of migrants over this period have been successfully integrated into the wider cultural matrix, even while preserving aspects of their minority culture. Certainly there have been Jewish communities, but the wider culture has not been undermined by their presence. Likewise the integration of French Huguenots, of Poles during the Second World War, and even Greek-Cypriots after the invasion of Cyprus by the Turkish Army.

Where Responsibility Rests

Domestic ViolenceDennis Batten argues that today’s police are ill equipped and inexperienced – and cannot be expected to deal successfully with domestic violence

By chance, I caught the tail end of a news item on television. A woman in her twenties was being interviewed on the subject of domestic violence and the part played by Victim Support in assisting her to cope with a violent male partner.

She had nothing but praise for the support she had received, except for her comments on police, which to me were surprising. She said that Victim Support had treated her with kindness and concern whereas she had found the police officers who were dealing with her violent partner, to be intimidating and, in her view, more concerned with the arrest and detention of her attacker than supporting her when she was in a highly emotional state and required their support.

She then went into some detail regarding subsequent counselling and support meetings. The interviewer spoke at length regarding how domestic violence victims were mentally scarred and were in need of help and understanding.
