No excuse for domestic violence

The World Health Organisation has a clinical interest in the issue of violence against women. That's because the matter is linked to a higher-than-average incidence of a range of acute and chronic problems, such as depression and other mental illness, stress- and alcohol-related disorders, pregnancy complications and sexually transmitted disease. But it is not a simple matter to raise the profile of violence as a global women's health issue. Much of the violence is inflicted by partners, and cultural resistance to intervention in domestic affairs continues to be an obstacle. Hong Kong is no exception.

Australia's poll contains message for Hong Kong

After three years of minority rule by a centre-left Labor government marked by infighting, Australians have elected a conservative Liberal-National party coalition led by Tony Abbott by a big majority in the House of Representatives. Barring political disasters, it seems assured of at least two terms of government, normally six years.
