So many women murdered by jealous, possessive, and controlling men with ideas of entitlement bound up in masculinity.

Absolutely,  put very well.

I remember when girls and young women would come into work saying either 'he's chucked me' or 'I chucked him' - it was commonplace

Again it's about choice and women's rights.

I googled  John Hunt,  it said he was born in 1910  which would make him 114,  is there another John Hunt?

Yes it's the racecourse commentator, as per all the news articles 🙄
