RIP and sympathies to this man's family and friends.

Another male suicide it seems. We have a minister for women who's currently all exercised about how toys are being merchandised in shops to appeal to children, just in case girls are being put off playing with Action Man and his chums...

Meanwhile back in the real world, when is the other half of our society going to have its issues taken seriously by government? Male suicide is bordering on an epidemic but what's being done about understanding and tackling the reasons for it?

Although this many other cases are very sad, however, I do not believe male suicide is bordering on "an epidemic"; figures from the Samaritan show male suicides have been in decline 1992-2012
