Today’s talking point


A SURVEY by the biography publisher StoryTerrace suggests that nearly a quarter (23 per cent) of people feel their mental health would be improved if they could find out more about their family history, but that more than half (56 per cent) have lost the chance because they are no longer in contact with relatives who could tell them about their roots, either through estrangement or death.

Instinctively we know that family cohesion and a sense of belonging, decried by the left, is important for wellbeing. Where does that leave the nearly 3million children in single parent homes, many of whom lose contact with their father or mother, and thus are deprived of knowledge about half of their family history?

Feel free to discuss this or anything else on your mind.
