Cretinous vote whoring politico simpering to an organisation that already gets Tens of millions in tax payer funding, while the organisations for other gender gets near nothing at all even though official figures show it is not far from half the victims.

If this man had any credibility he would be making sure the other organisations are being equally resourced as a matter of priority.

The Home Office provide local authorities with £60 million per year in
financial support under the Supporting People initiative for Women at Risk
of Domestic Violence. This funding does not support men and local
authorities cannot bid for money from this fund to support men at risk of
domestic violence

There are over 470 refuges available to women but there are no dedicated
refuges for heterosexual men and only one for homosexual men. There
are only approximately twelve rooms available for heterosexual men
nationwide in the 470 refuges and these are only available when there are
no female occupants.
