The BBC are giving massive air to the 'story' that "'1m children' face home violence", according to a UNICEF report. It was all over the Today programme, second item on R4 news, and the Victoria Derbyshire phone-in on R5 is discussing it.
Two teensy pointettes.
The 1m headline figure turns out to be "between 240,000 and 963,000", 'violence' includes 'emotional violence', which, as we've seen before, includes 'not getting your fair share of the household money'.
And as a factor in poor outcomes for children, over two million live in one-parent families - not to mention the step-children. Many of these one-parent families are the outcome of cohabitation.
You're not likely to be told that by the BBC, though. And even less likely to be told that by Victoria Derbyshire.
