Dec 15, 2014 by

By Carolyn Moynihan, MercatorNet: Christmas is the family feast par excellence in the Western world but it is also the time when family wounds become more evident and hurt more.

This Coalition government’s track record certainly doesn’t merit much in the way of optimism. After all, we’ve had another four years of colossal family breakdown that now affects 45 per cent of all teenagers and costs the taxpayer £46 billion every year - quite an important factor when we’re facing the...
