Of Judges and Cricket Bats
We can be grateful to Judge Mansell for bringing to public attention the detail of another case of appalling domestic abuse.
While the words of the judge may be quoted out of context, the publicity given to the case can only be helpful. It will give more women more confidence to protest and take action against all levels of domestic abuse.
I was reminded by the blog post I did in September 2016 ‘Why do some Men become Brutes’. In it I said that the most likely explanation for men abusing their partners, both violently and non-violently, is to bring down their confidence and self-esteem. This is to compensate for their own low self-esteem.

Then this week I came across a quotation which sums this up very succinctly. I have re-produced it here.
