A Personal Approach to Domestic Violence

This is a theoretical situation. You are a senior cabinet minister chairing a campaign meeting and a certain anonymous party official, perhaps called “Mr B” is conferenced in by phone. During the conference call Mr B has a screaming match with the aspiring Mrs B to such an extent that your conference call cannot hear anything other than screaming.

Do you:
a. Call him afterwards and tell him to stop, and explain to him screaming matches with women is a form of domestic violence and are totally unacceptable.
b. Call him afterwards and tell him if he is going to have a screaming match do to so either before or after the conference call.
c. Turn a blind eye and accept that some men get off on screaming at their women and kicking doors down etc
d. Organise a proper screaming match between Mr B and one of your key offsiders who is known as a good screamer and start offering odds to all your mates.
e. Ask Mr B if his dogs respond to screaming as well as his women do.

      or option F.  tell cameron to stop making up theoretical situations and presenting them as if they are some secret truth that he knows and nobody else can verify…

    Is this the original Mrs B?  I would have thought she would have left him by now and at the very least her father have the legal nouse to take Mr B for half of what he owns.  How embarrassing for those listening.  Now there’s a YouTube moment.

    its always assumed to be the male at fault and has to take responsibility for abusive situations..id tell mr b to kick the queer bitch to the kerb and find a decent woman and not one that carries on like a fuckwit when your on a conference call

      I don’t even understand why anyone would want to be with someone who engages in a screaming match while on a conference call – male or female. That is fuckwittery at its best. 

      If someone screamed at me while I was on a conference call I’d kick them to the kerb so fast their feet wouldn’t hit the ground until they were 2 houses down the road. No one should have to live with/have a long term relationship a banshee.

      It is only acceptable to scream at someone when they, or someone close by, is in deadly peril. Otherwise please use your inside voice.

    I’m particularly worried about the dogs. What a shocking environment for them to live in and no doubt are now treated as an Asset by Mr B and there’s some joint ownership structure where they’re dropped off to a neutral point (i.e dog groomer) where the other party - presumably the former Mrs B.

      One dog died in mysterious circumstances. Hand overs at the groomers at custody transfer time ave become tense by all accounts.
