Children at Risk

"In Britain in today's newspapers, there is an account of yesterday's report of the Children's Commissioner for England and it makes devastating reading about how millions of children in England are growing up in vulnerable or high risk environments.

"These are shocking figures and doubtless there are many causes. But there is one above all that cuts to the very heart of the problem of contemporary politics and why we so often find ourselves faced with problems that seem to have no solution. The single biggest factor, and this has emerged from every piece of research over the last fifty years, is the collapse of marriage as an institution."
