Suicide is now the biggest killer of young men in the UK
According to the Metro:
Three young males take their own life on average every day across the country – and the recession is thought to be playing a part in many of the deaths.
The highest rate was in the male age bracket 30-44. Suicide in this group accounted for more deaths than road accidents, murder and HIV/Aids combined. SOURCE
Never the less, going by the two stories below, women cant be far behind.
This government has blood on their hands. They don’t give a fuck about you or anyone else… They make me sick.

Police investigating after a woman fell from the Albert Street car park
An eyewitness has spoken of the moment a woman plunged to her death from the fifth floor of a city centre car park.
The onlooker told the Birmingham Mail the woman was “very stressed” and , seconds before the fall, was shouting about the government, her house and child support.
Around 100 people – including children – watched in shock as she fell from the 100ft high NCP car park, on Albert Street, at around noon yesterday.
The 33-year-old witness – a family support worker from Walsall – described the victim as middle-aged.
“No one knows why she did it. It’s horrid, it’s terrible,” said the woman, who has asked not to be named.
“She just threatened to jump off, but then she did.
“She was just saying she had had enough of government changes. She was saying something about her house.
“She seemed very stressed.
“I don’t know how long she was there, a lot of people were saying she’d been there over an hour.
“Obviously this woman has got children as well.”
The witness added she heard the victim talking about child support.
A West Midlands Police spokesman said the emergency call came through at 12.05pm. “We were called to Albert Street in the city centre after a woman fell from the fifth floor of the multi-storey car park.
“The incident is not being treated as suspicious.”
A number of paramedics were scrambled, but nothing could be done to save the woman.
A West Midlands Ambulance spokesman said: “West Midlands Ambulance Service can confirm it was called to Albert Street, in Birmingham, shortly after 12.05pm.
“Two ambulance crews, a BASICS Emergency Medic, a paramedic area support officer, two motorbike paramedics and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended.
“A woman was confirmed dead at the scene.”
Young mum hanged herself after losing custody of daughter and eviction from home
A young mum hanged herself in her bedroom after losing custody of her two-year-old daughter and being evicted from her home.
An inquest into the death of Brooke Symes, from Tilgate, was held at a coroner’s court in Horsham yesterday(Tuesday June 18).
Brooke was 21 when she died in her home in Rillside on January 20 2013.
Coroner’s officer Jemma Gaule read a statement from Brooke’s mother Steph Pullen, of Burrell Court, Bewbush, explaining how Brooke’s mental health deteriorated in the two years before her death.
It explained she became depressed after her daughter’s father was given full custody and she was served an eviction notice in 2012 which told her she must leave her home by February 2013.
Police officers attended her home on January 20 2013 and forced entry to her bedroom where she was found.
She left a suicide note.
She was taken to East Surrey hospital where Dr Mohammed Ameen confirmed her death was caused by loss of oxygen supply due to hanging.
Assistant deputy coroner for West Sussex Dr Karen Henderson said: “It is clear beyond reasonable doubt Brooke intended to take her own life.”
