An interview on ‘Woman’s Hour’

I much enjoyed being interviewed (along with the ultra-left-wing ‘comic’ writer John O’Farrell) on the BBC Radio 4 programme Woman’s Hour this morning:

Jenni Murray, the highly regarded (albeit feminist) presenter, was very professional before, during, and after the discussion. O’Farrell, in stark contrast, engaged in shaming tactics and personal attacks, and offered opinions masquerading as facts.

O’Farrell recently stood as the Labour candidate at the Eastleigh by-election, and made a very poor showing. Maybe this had something to do with the constituency being near Southampton, the city from which a flotilla sailed taking service personnel to the Falklands war, in which 255 servicemen died. In one of his books, O’Farrell wrote that he’d wished Britain had lost the Falklands war, thereby harming Margaret Thatcher’s prospects of re-election. In the same book he recorded his disappointed at learning she hadn’t been killed in the Brighton IRA bombing. I could have engaged in shaming tactics during our discussion by mentioning these matters, but I didn’t, preferring instead to talk about substantive issues.

I end this piece with a request for donations to our party. None of the people associated with the party, including myself, obtain any personal income from donations. 100% of donation income is directed towards campaign costs. We’re currently aiming to raise at least £15,000, to enable us to finance the deposits for the top 30 Conservative marginal seats which we plan to contest in the May 2015 general election. You can make a donation through this link:

Thank you for your support. We’re working hard to make the future brighter for men and boys, and the women who love them.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    I only just got around to listening to this and having done so I wanted to commend you on your style and delivery. Excellent job!

    John, IMHO, came over as a shallow-minded, stuck in his ways, childish moron who hadn’t got the decency to acknowledge any of your well made points. His sneering and and shaming only made him look even worse. Your end line slam-dunking his statement that your party would get ignored was a classic when you raised the fact that you’d had 10 BBC interviews in 22 days. Fantastic and exactly what we need to get the attention we deserve!

    Keep up the good work, Mike.

    Well done. I admire your restraint in the presence of such an odious individual (O’ Farrell). My only point with any appearance on the BBC is that you are unlikely to be given a truly fair hearing (with the possible exception of the Today programme or Radio 5 Live). Is there an opportunity on ITV, Sky, LBC or even Talksport ? In these forums freedom of speech is more likely to be guaranteed. Please keep me updated, I will do what I can to help.

    Best Regards,
