In February 2013 our political party was registered with the Electoral Commission. It’s called Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). We’re planning to change the face of British politics. The party has its own blog http://j4mb.wordpress.com.
British men and boys have been increasingly insulted and demonised over the past 50 years by angry vociferous women driven by misandry (hatred of men). Men’s and boys’ interests have been ever more assaulted by the actions and inactions of politicians seeking to placate those women, particularly over the past 30 years, with no democratic mandate to do so. Conservative and Labour governments have been equally bad in this respect, and the current Conservative-led coalition is the worst of them all, with David Cameron slavishly following policy directions set by Harriet Harman and other militant feminist politicians over the past 30 years.
Men collectively pay 72% of the state’s income tax revenues, while women collectively pay only 28% and receive disproportionately far more from the state in return. Men pay a total of £64 billion more income tax annually than women, yet they’re increasingly ignored and disadvantaged by the state they largely finance.
We’re receiving support (and donations) not only from men, but also from women, who believe (as we do) in equality of opportunities for men and women rather than equality of outcomes, which require anti-meritocratic social engineering initiatives to deliver, cause considerable damage to the fabric of a civilised society, and result in justifiable resentment among men who are unfairly disadvantaged.
We’re receiving support from women who are mothers of boys, and see them increasingly disadvantaged by the education system.
We’re receiving support from women who love their male partners, fathers, brothers, male friends and acquaintances, and who deplore the assaults on those men’s interests.
One area we find women particularly angry about is the state’s continuing failure to ensure men are allowed reasonable access to their children, if and when their vindictive ex-partners deny them that access. Many women believe, as we do, that such denial of access is emotional abuse of men and children.
On 2 March 2013 I wrote to David Cameron outlining our reasons for establishing a political party, and announced our intention to contest the top 30 Conservative marginal seats at the 2015 general election:
Our party will raise public consciousness about the many disadvantages and discriminations faced by men and boys in modern Britain, and campaign to have them reversed. We’re currently engaged in a public consultation exercise, and I invite you to contribute feedback on the associated document (link below). Your feedback will help us develop our first election manifesto.
Our prime areas of concern, as outlined in the consultation document, are:
- Anti-male legislation and official guidelines for civil servants
- Political representation
- Family support
- Marriage and divorce
- Domestic abuse
- Parental access to children
- Paternity fraud
- The justice system
- The business sector
- Retirement age
- The charitable status of politically-motivated charities
We plan to contest the 30 most marginal Conservative seats at the May 2015 general election. At the 2010 general election those seats were won by Conservative candidates with majorities in the range of 54 – 1,692 votes. I’ll personally be contesting the Bedford & Kempston seat, while Ray Barry - the leader of another political party, The Equal Parenting Alliance – will be contesting the Wolverhampton South-West seat for our party.
While we shall be fighting to win those seats, even a modest number of votes would be enough to unseat the sitting MPs, and could change the outcome of the election. This would put men’s human rights squarely on the political ‘radar’ in the UK for the first time. The parties would thereafter have no choice but to start taking men’s human rights more seriously, and start to reverse 30+ years of state-sponsored discriminations against men and boys.
The hostile, poisonous, undemocratic, anti-meritocratic, anti-male culture which has developed over 30+ years must be challenged and defeated for the sakes of men, women, and children. For the sake of Britain as a civilised society. The challenge will have to start at the ballot box, which is why we’ve launched a political party.
Political campaigns inevitably cost money to run, and we’ve a great deal of work to do. The people working for the party, including myself, receive no personal income from it. 100% of donations will be used to pay for general election deposits in 2015 and campaigning costs. An accountant ensures we abide strictly with Electoral Commission guidelines for political party funding and expenditure. The deposits for 30 seats in 2015 will cost £15,000, and while donations are on track towards that target, we still have a long way to go. And we’ll need a good deal more money to enable us to contest those 30 seats effectively. So I’m making a personal appeal to you. Please donate what you can, to help us make the future brighter for men and boys, and the women who love them. You can make a donation through the following link.

My thanks to JT for pointing me towards a video from the legendary Canadian MHRA Karen Straughan, aka ‘GirlWritesWhat’ / ‘GWW’. It dates from March 2012 but somehow I missed it the first time around. As usual with GWW’s pieces, she covers far more territory than you might expect from the piece’s title. It’s well worth watching, as always with GWW. Enjoy:
At around 21:30 GWW refers to, ‘men going their own way’. The term - often shortened to MGTOW - refers to an ever-growing cohort of men with each passing year. To find out more about the MGTOW phenomenon I recommend http://mgtow.com.
I’m writing to ask for your support with respect to an e-petition concerning a challenge of an initiative in Wales. It will you take under a minute to sign the e-petition, and you don’t need to be a resident of Wales to sign it.
The Welsh government is planning to introduce a framework for setting policies and allocating state resources in line with the now highly discredited theory that only men are perpetrators of Domestic Abuse/Violence, and only women are victims. The organisation ‘Healing Men’ is the principal petitioner of an e-petition relating to this issue, and Erin Pizzey was one of the first people to sign it. I’ve just signed it myself, and I would ask you and any other people sympathetic to this issue to do likewise. One small tip. If you live outside Wales you must click on the box ‘Find my location’ after entering your post code.

Thank you for your support. This is a very important initiative.
My thanks to the lady who brought this story to my attention. A Facebook page http://j4mb.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=521&action=edit&message=1 has been posted with respect to events surrounding the proposal to introduce a Men’s Officer onto the Students’ Union Executive committee. Nathan Hoyle’s introduction to the matter:
Open letter to the University of Manchester Students’ Union
Last week, the Union held an assembly (as it does for new ideas), one of which was whether to introduce a Men’s Officer as a position on the Exec. Usually, this would be a panel of 20 students, picked on a representative basis (so e.g. 10 men, 10 women, ethnically balanced etc.). For some reason, with this issue, somewhat suspiciously the number of females on the panel outnumbered the men more than two-to-one, something the Union and Mancunion both failed to report…
I’ve posted the following comment:
Feminists ALWAYS subvert any attempt by men to discuss men’s issues. Whatever the position with the Union, you have to form an independent men’s group without any ‘representative’ nonsense.
I lead a party which fights for the rights of men and boys, who are assaulted by the state (in its actions and inactions) throughout their lives, in many ways. And it gets worse with each passing year. Our public consultation document (link below) covers 18 areas in which the state assaults men and boys. There isn’t one area in which the state assaults women.
Come on guys, strap a pair on. For the past 30+ years feminism has been a female supremacist movement driven by misandry. For those who might doubt this assertion, I recommend Swayne O’Pie’s ‘Why Britain Hates Men: Exposing Feminism’.
Why would a man call himself a feminist unless he, too, hates men, and wants to see women run everything for the benefit of women, at the expense of men? Let me know if you’d like me to give a presentation at UoM, engage in debates etc. One final thing. If you get any earache from women in general (or feminists in particular) point them to the website of the Huffington Post journalist Claire-Louise Meadows http://afternyne.com/.
Have a nice day.
It’s been over 30 years since I was a university student, but it appears that Student Unions have since become such important organisations that they now have Chief Executive Officers. Amazing. Yesterday I emailed email@example.com the Student Union at the University of Bedfordshire http://www.bedssu.co.uk which is centred in Bedford, where I’ll be standing as a prospective parliamentary candidate in 2015. I offered ’a 30-minute presentation about the state’s ever-worsening assaults on the interests of men and boys’. I’ve just received the following email from the Student Union’s Chief Executive Officer, Michele Flynn Michele.firstname.lastname@example.org:
Thank you for your email. This is not a proposal Beds SU has interest in pursuing.
Doubtless Ms Flynn consulted widely among both male and female students before coming to the decision to stop me giving a 30-minute presentation to students at her University. Or perhaps… here’s a crazy idea, but let me say it anyway… she didn’t?
An interesting article by Deborah Kendrick, an American former feminist, has been published on ‘A Voice for Men’:
If you don’t already subscribe to the website http://avoiceformen.com I strongly recommend you do so now. Barely a day goes by when an article doesn’t provide me with yet another piece of the gender politics ‘jigsaw’.
I was pleased to be directed to an excellent critique by Belinda Brown of Diane Abbott’s recent deeply flawed speech, on the website of the Centre for Policy Studies:
