Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them) – J4MB – the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for an end to state assaults on men’s and boys’ human rights.

We’re planning to change the face of British politics.

We’re currently engaged in drafting our general election manifesto, and we expect to publish it in November. We’ll be making proposals in the following areas:

1. Abortion
2. Genital mutilation
3. Fatherlessness
4. Education
5. Employment
6. Access to children
7. Physical abuse
8. Sexual abuse
9. Ex-Armed Forces personnel  – support for those with mental health disorders (including PTSD)
10. Homelessness
11. Suicide
12. Criminal justice system bias
13. Reproductive rights
14. Paternity fraud
15. Anonymity for those suspected of having committed sexual offences
16. Financial settlements following divorce
17. Health
18. Political representation
19. Government interference in company director appointments
20. Retirement years expectation

In June 2014 I gave a speech at the first international conference on men’s issues, in Detroit, explaining why there’s a need for new political parties to campaign for the human rights of men and boys. A video of the speech, along with the associated transcript, is here. My media appearances, as well as those of Ray Barry, who’ll be standing for J4MB at the 2015 general election, are here.

For over 30 years, men’s and boys’ human rights have been assaulted by politicians pandering to the demands of women driven by misandry (the hatred of men) – feminist MPs, as well as feminists in key positions in state institutions.

The family court system, for example, fails to ensure fathers enjoy reasonable access to their children following family breakdowns. Denial of access is emotional abuse of children, fathers, grandparents and others.

Conservative and Labour administrations have been equally culpable, and the current Conservative-led coalition has been the worst of them all, slavishly following policy directions set by Harriet Harman and other feminist MPs.

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 paid a total of £68 billion more income tax than women in 2011/12 – a rise from £64 billion in 2010/11 – yet their human rights and interests are assaulted by the state they largely finance.

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.

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 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.

We’ll be contesting Conservative marginal seats at the May 2015 general election. As a longstanding resident of Bedford, I’ll be contesting the Bedford & Kempston seat.

One of our candidates at the 2015 general election will be Ray Barry, leader of the campaign group Real Fathers for Justice. He supports parents in custody battles through Court Without a Lawyer. Ray will be contesting the Wolverhampton South-West seat.

He says:

Family Law has become a multi-billion pound industry. The dysfunctional family law system has led to one in four British children permanently losing contact with their fathers after family breakdowns. These children are more likely to suffer disadvantage throughout childhood and adult life.

The reluctance to reform this system among those who work in the industry (lawyers, judges, court staff, court experts) is driven more by financial self-interest than concern for the welfare of children.

We propose a simplified legislative model, intended to remove the need for the great majority of contested court proceedings in cases where parents have separated and are unable to agree the living arrangements for their children.

This legislative base would also remove the need for state intervention concerning child support. No Child Support Agency would be required. This would result in significant savings to the exchequer and would restore the responsibility for such matters to the parents, which is where it belongs.

While we’ll be fighting to win seats, the prime objective will be to contribute to the MPs losing their seats, to protest at the Conservative party’s relentless pursuit of anti-male agendas. In future elections this strategy will help put men’s and boys’ human rights squarely on the political ‘radar’ in the UK, and before future elections the main political parties will have no choice but to engage with us, in an effort to deter us from contesting their marginal seats.

Then we can expect to see the start of the reversal of 30+ years of state-sponsored discriminations against men and boys.

The challenge will have to start at the ballot box. All the main parties unfairly advantage women and girls at the expense of men and boys, so if you’re concerned about the areas in which we campaign, a vote for any of the main parties is a wasted vote.

Only a vote for J4MB will send the political class the message that their assaults on men and boys must stop.

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 and campaign-related costs. An accountant ensures we abide strictly with Electoral Commission guidelines for political party funding and expenditure.

Please donate what you can to help us make the future brighter for men and boys, and the women who love them. If you’re able to offer us some of your time, perhaps for leaflet distribution, please contact us.

I invite you to contact me at any time. I live in Bedford, my email address is mike@j4mb.org.uk, my mobile number 07967 026163. Thank you for your interest in our work.

Our second public challenge of Laura Bates

A few weeks ago we publicly challenged Laura Bates over this lie:

Over two women per week are killed by partners or former partners in the UK.

Well, we all know how that worked out, with her ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award, and her shameless repetition of the lie on Free Speech Live. We thank Doris, a long-standing donor and supporter, for suggesting a new public challenge of this high-profile spokeswoman for modern feminism. I’ve just send Ms Bates an email with the following content:

Laura, good evening. Your response to our first public challenge was woeful, to say the least, unless of course you’re of view that the deaths of an average of 1.46 women per week by partners or former partners is ‘over two’? If so, do you have a name for this new branch of Mathematics? Batesian Mathematics, possibly?

It’s time for a new public challenge, and there are more to come. I refer you to our YouTube file of the recent Free Speech Live debate in which you appeared, lying and whining as usual. In the course of a series of highly questionable assertions, at 2:26 you claimed:

‘85,000 woman are raped every year’.

Please email me mike@j4mb.org.uk with the evidence behind your astonishing claim by 17:00 on 31 October. If you don’t do so, or your ‘evidence’ is nonsensical – e.g. the figure relates to rape allegations rather than convictions for rape – we’ll present you with our second ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award.

In the unlikely event that Special Snowflake responds to our challenge, we’ll post the details here.

Laura Bates: ‘Whiny Feminist of the Month’

The men’s human rights movement’s poster girl has done it again, winning this month’s ‘Whiny Feminist of the Month’ award for a second time. Her certificate, with an explanation of why she’s won this new award, is here. As we’ve said so many times:

Laura Bates is the gift that keeps on giving.

Kathy Gyngell: Feminism is to blame for the decline in the status of British nursing

An excellent new piece. It’s good to see the blame for one of the major causes of ever-declining standards in the NHS placed firmly where it belongs.

Laura Bates’s defenders – Gormless Feminists of the Month

During our morning break this morning, I asked the team for suggestions for this month’s ‘Gormless Feminist of the Month’ award. Several names were put forward, but in the end all agreed that the people who defend Laura Bates’s continuing refusal to retract the lie which recently resulted in her becoming a ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ should be given the award. Two outstanding examples of her defenders – ‘SweetStrawberryShell’ and ‘WeeFaolan’ – posted mind-numbingly gormless comments on one of Herbert Purdy’s YouTube videos, and a link to that video is on the award certificate.

Laura Bates lying, and an interesting/ridiculous/hilarious defence of her doing so

A YouTube piece from Herbert Purdy concerning Laura Bates’s repeated lies about the number of women being killed by partners and ex-partners in the UK, followed in the comments section by an interesting – and ridiculous, and hilarious – defence of her doing so, from a particularly silly supporter (‘SweetStrawberryShell’). Her comments have to be read to be believed. Whinin’ Miss Bates – soon to become Whinin’ Mrs Bates, we offer our sincere condolences to her unfortunate fiancé, we have no idea what he did in a former life to deserve such a fate – has an army of silly supporters, as you’d imagine. Enjoy.

Our submission to the Home Office consultation on the strengthening of the law on domestic abuse

J4MB is fortunate in having supporters who are willing to devote time, energy, and expertise to support the party in a wide variety of ways. One was recently the author of a remarkable report on the institutional anti-male bias of public bodies, with a particular emphasis on how that leads inevitably to a lack of concern and support for male victims of partner violence. 94% of men who are abused by partners are abused by female partners. The public bodies and institutions include:

- Home Office

- Crown Prosecution Service

- the police

- Probation Service

- Ministry of Justice

- the judiciary

- Equality and Human Rights Commission

The supporter generously agreed to our request that we use his report as part of our submission to the Home Office’s consultation on strengthening the law on domestic abuse. Another key supporter and myself have been burning the midnight oil in recent times adding further material, and we believe the 118-page-long final report submitted an hour ago to the Home Office is strong in terms of both breadth and depth.

The other element of our submission to the Home Office was a copy of our recent public challenge of Theresa May, Home Secretary, to hold a public inquiry – here.

Please let us know what you think of our submission, by sending in your comments. If you’d like to demonstrate your support for our work in a more tangible way, we invite you to make a donation, possibly ordering an individually numbered J4MB wristband, for which we ask a minimum contribution of just £5.00 (inc p&p). You can make a donation and/or order wristbands through this link.

Thank you for your support. Without it, J4MB wouldn’t exist. With your support, we’ll be around for many years to come. I’m personally committed to fighting general elections until at least 2030, when I’ll be 72 – whether as leader, or otherwise.

It’s been a long day.

Good night.

Our public challenge of Mark Carney, governor, Bank of England – Round 2

We recently challenged Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England, over a truly ludicrous claim he’d made in the course of a speech at the TUC:

Hiring more women in senior roles makes us much, more effective

We wrote an article for AVfM which included a link to the letter in which we’d publicly challenged Carney – here.

Our challenge was passed onto Roger Beaton, of the bank’s ‘Public Information and Enquiries Group’, for a response. Apparently the best this hapless official could manage was this embarrassing response, so we’re about to reply with this.

Woman abusing man in Sri Lanka

The latest in a series of videos demonstrating feminist claims that men’s violence against women is culturally sanctioned, are nonsense. All their claims are nonsense, of course, so that probably didn’t saying. As usual with feminist claims, the truth is precisely the opposite. In many situations – both in the domestic environment, and in public – women can abuse men without fear of reprisal.
