HUSBANDS who keep their wives downtrodden could face prison under new plans set out by the Government today.
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, published proposals for a new offence of “domestic abuse” designed to criminalise men who bully, cause psychological harm or deny money to their partners.
The law would make the worst cases of non-violent “controlling behaviour” a jailable offence.
Exact terms of the offence are yet to be defined, but it could involve humiliating, frightening or intimidating a partner, keeping them away from friends or family or restricting their access to money.
Because in our modern world we do have equality before the law for each and every gender, do we not?
Given that description the wife who won’t let a bloke wander off to the pub for a natter with £15 for a few beers gets put in pokey.
And quite right too of course.
That is the way it will work, isn’t it?
