Welcome

Welcome to the official blog of a new political party. We’re planning to change the face of British politics.

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 gender 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.

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.

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:

130302 open letter to David Cameron

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.

http://j4mb.wordpress.com/our-public-consultation-exercise-2/

Our prime areas of concern, as outlined in the consultation document, are:

1. Paternal access to children – following relationship breakdowns, the state ensures fathers meet their financial obligations towards their children, whilst not ensuring them reasonable access to the same children. We believe this to be emotional abuse of both fathers and their children.

2. Domestic abuse – there’s a great deal of evidence showing women are at least as aggressive as men in their intimate relationships, yet virtually all state support for victims of domestic abuse is directed towards female victims, not male victims.

3. Anti-male bias in legislation and official guidelines for civil servants – these anti-male biases should be scrapped. No legislation or official guidelines favour men over women.

4. Political representation – there’s a Minister for Women, but no Minister for Men. The government should repeal legislation which enables political parties to use women-only shortlists to select prospective parliamentary candidates.

5. Education – a highly feminised education system ensures 60% of university students are female.

6. Employment – almost two-thirds of public sector workers are women, yet the ‘public sector equality duty’ in the Equality Act (2010) allows public sector organisations to favour women over men, when recruiting.

7. Marriage and divorce – in an era when women have long enjoyed equal employment rights as men, it’s unfair that women continue to achieve personal enrichment through divorce.

8. Health – the state spends far more on health provision for women e.g. almost as many men die of prostate cancer as women die of breast cancer, yet the state spends only a third of the sum on early diagnosis of prostate cancer, as it spends on early diagnosis of breast cancer.

9. Justice system – when convicted of the same crime, men are far more likely than women to receive custodial sentences, and more severe sentences generally. 80,000 British men are in prison, and 4,000 women, yet the government’s focus is on reducing the number of women in prison.

10. Anonymity for people suspected of sexual assault – the coalition government committed to reinstating anonymity for people suspected of sexual assault (until and unless convicted) but reneged on the commitment once in office. Many innocent men’s lives continue to be ruined as a result.

11. The business sector – the government continues to bully companies (through its continuing threats of gender quotas) into increasing the proportion of women in their senior reaches – e.g. in the boardrooms of FTSE100 companies – despite being aware of the evidence that in doing so, they’re harming those companies’ future financial performance.

12. Homelessness – over 90% of homeless people are men.

13. Suicide – the suicide rate among men is 3x that among women.

14. Retirement age – on average men die earlier, yet retire later.

15. Abortion law reform – in 2012, in England and Wales, 185,122 abortions were carried out. 180,117 (97%) of them were carried out on the grounds of reducing the risk of injury to the physical or mental health of the women. Of these, 180,008 (99.94%) were carried out on risk to mental health grounds although there’s no evidence to support the thesis that abortion reduces the risk to women’s mental health.

We plan to contest the 30 most marginal Conservative seats at the May 2015 general election. 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.

At the 2010 general election those 30 seats were won by Conservative candidates with majorities in the range of 54 – 1,692 votes. 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.

Meme of the week, and a collective noun for feminists: a ‘flatulence’

For many years I’ve used the 1997 edition of The Chambers Dictionary, the dictionary of choice for people like myself who are keen on Scrabble and cryptic crosswords. A much-valued supporter, Paul, recently had a brainwave, to start a ‘Meme of the week’ series, drawing on the memes on the Facebook page of the fine people at ‘A Voice for Men’.

Because ‘meme’ wasn’t in the 1997 edition of my dictionary, I ordered the latest edition. It arrived today, and it’s about the size and weight of two house bricks. This is the dictionary’s definition of the word:

meme n a practise, belief, or other cultural feature that is passed on other than by genetic means (biol); an idea or question that is disseminated via the Internet and changes in form during the course of being passed on.

As well as all the definitions and much else, there’s a 64-page section in the middle of the book, most of which consists of The Word Lover’s Miscellany. From this enlightening and entertaining section I learned of a long list of collective nouns, the following being my personal favourites:

A clowder or glaring of cats

A coalition of cheetahs

A flatulence of feminists

A glint or troubling of goldfish

An implausibility of gnus

A mischief of mice

A murder of crows

An obstinacy of buffalos

A rumba of rattlesnakes

An ugly of walruses

An unkindness of ravens

I may possibly have added one of my own to the list.

Back to ‘Meme of the week’. Our first alludes to a quotation usually – but erroneously – attributed to Gloria Steinem. She’s on record as saying that a (female) Australian student first wrote the line ‘A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle’ on a wall of graffiti at her university in 1970.

So… drum roll… and with thanks to Paul… our first ‘Meme of the week’:

140411 fish, bicycle, revised

Aer fenimists moer likley thna nomral womne ot eb dylsexic?

Are feminists more likely than normal women to be dyslexic? I only ask because quite a number of the google searches which lead to this website are similar to one which led someone here earlier today:

I enjoyed one the other day, which was spelled correctly, to be fair:

What are British feminists fighting for?

A good question, well put, I thought.

Luke E Beale nominates himself for a Toady award

There are times I think we need to scrap the rule about people not being eligible for our awards when they effectively self-nominate for them. Not a day goes by without a woman - sometimes many women – self-nominating for our ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’ award in the mainstream media.

Less frequently we see men self-nominating for a Toady award, presented to men (sometimes, but not always, in positions of influence) who support the misandry-driven feminist drive for gender supremacy. Which brings me, naturally, to Luke E Beale. Only minutes ago, he emailed me this absolute gem. Seriously, I’m not making this up:

From: LB745330@wcupa.edu

I hope I have the right email address, and I hope that you can respond to me in an upfront and intellectual manner. To make a long story short, I cannot believe there are men that hold the views about women like you do. It’s a disgrace to see some of the things you have written about and only the most ill educated of men think of women as you suggest in your horrible books. As a man myself, I support a women’s right to create her own future and to steer clear of pathetic men like you. I am trying to write this with respect, so please respond Mr. Buchanan. Pretty soon, there will be a new era of more open-minded men and women dismantling everything you have written about and I cannot wait for that day. Thanks for your time.

History Major

Women’s & Gender Studies Major

Vice President, Active Minds

I replied as follows:

Luke, thank you. You have the right email address, and I thank you for providing the material for my next blog piece on http://j4mb.org.uk. Gender feminism is a female supremacy movement driven by misandry, and you (and your like) are regarded as nothing more than useful idiots by feminists. I suggest you read every piece published on http://avoiceformen.com over the coming month, and thereby start to educate yourself about gender politics.

I see you’re the Vice-President of ‘Active Minds’ – is the name ironic? I can’t be bothered to google the term, but if you send me the URL, I’ll add it to my blog piece. Thank you.

Have a nice day.

Best wishes,

Mike Buchanan

To the tune of the Tom Jones classic, ‘Delilah’: “Whine, whine, whine, Caroline…”

It transpires one of our supporters has a certain genius as a lyric writer. He’s just posted the following in response to today’s news that we’ve awarded Caroline Criado-Perez our ‘Whiny Woman of the Month” award, just days after she won our ‘Lying Woman of the Month’ award. Enjoy:

“Experimental direct mind translation device upgraded to included musical brainwaves. Here are the latest test subject results. Tune sounds similar to Delilah.

I saw the light on the night that I passed by my twitter
I saw the flickering tweets flooding from her mind.
She was a woman
As she decried me I read them and made up my mind.
Whine, whine, whine Caroline ah
Whine, whine, whine Caroline ah

I could see that girl was no good for me
But I was sure she deserved an award for free

At break of day when the tweets stop coming, I was waiting
I sent an email to her address which she opened in awe
she sat there laughing
then she understood the email and she laughed no more
Whine, whine, whine Caroline ah
Whine, whine, whine Caroline ah
So before you start to whine more and more
Forgive me Caroline ah I just couldn’t take any more

she sat there laughing
then she understood the email and she laughed no more
Whine, whine, whine Caroline ah
Whine, whine, whine Caroline ah

So before we award you even more
Forgive me Caroline ah I just couldn’t take any more
Forgive me Caroline ah I just couldn’t take any more”

Men are worth less than dogs (part 2)

Earlier this evening I put up a short piece about how the British justice system treats men as having less worth than dogs. I’ve been too busy today to prepare an evening meal, so about half an hour ago I went to my local curry restaurant to order a takeaway meal. On my way there, in the dark, I was passed by five or six young men, possibly in their late teens, walking in the opposite direction. One of them pushed one of his friends sharply against me, which caused me to fall over a low brick wall, hitting my head sharply against a large stone.

The young men went on their way, laughing, with one exception. He took the trouble to apologise prolifically for his friend’s behaviour, check I was OK, and help me get to my feet. I was shaken, but it soon afterwards dawned on me that it’s not just the British justice system which considers men as having less worth than dogs. Boys and young men are being taught to consider men in the same light. How can this not be damaging them psychologically? And people wonder why the #1 killer of young British men has for some years been suicide…

Janet Bloomfield: ‘Most women don’t kill their babies and leave them in dumpsters. Most men don’t rape drunk women, even while drunk themselves. So why are men taught NOT to rape, but women aren’t taught not to kill? I call bullshit.’

Abbi Kinsella, 54, defrauded her mother (suffering from dementia) of £100,000 to fund her online bingo habit

The judge clearly fancies himself as a comedian:

She denied theft, but admitted fraud. Sentencing was adjourned and judge Mark Eades said she should be prepared for a custodial sentence.

Yeah, righto, Marko.

Dawn Pinchen, 40, benefits cheat who received £35,000 by claiming she couldn’t even walk a car length, caught after being spotted on Facebook walking along the Great Wall of China. Her punishment? The usual.

Dawn Pinchen, 40, fraudulently claimed over £35,000 in the space of little more than five years. A female judge gave her a suspended sentence. What are the chances? That said, male judges are even worse in not making women accountable for their crimes.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2599531/Benefits-cheat-received-35-000-claiming-walk-car-length-caught-spotted-Facebook-walking-Great-Wall-China.html

She’s being allowed to pay back the £35,000 at the rate of £18.25 per week. Presumably the sum won’t rise with inflation, so paying it back will (in theory, anyway) take her to almost to her 77th birthday. Yeah, that’s going to happen.

A sizeable majority of students who fail to pay back their student loans are women, because they don’t earn enough over their ‘careers’ despite having ‘degrees’ in fashion and other intellectually rigorous subjects.

Hmm… is there maybe a pattern to all this?

It’s official. Men are worth less than dogs.

We’ve published many accounts where women have received only suspended sentences after trying to ruin men’s lives. Only a few days ago we posted a piece about how a woman invented a story about a primary school headmaster sexually abusing her daughter, a pupil at the school.

What happens if a woman neglects a dog to the point it dies of starvation? She receives an 18 week prison sentence:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2600651/Trainee-solicitor-starved-pet-dog-death-locking-kitchen-no-food-water-jailed-18-weeks.html

What message does this story send out to the world? This one:

The British justice system considers men as being worth less than dogs.

Caroline Criado-Perez – ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’

[Note added 10.4.14: This piece inspired a supporter to write some lyrics to be sung to the tune of the Tom Jones classic, Delilah. It starts, 'Whine, whine, whine, Caroline...'. Enjoy:

http://j4mb.wordpress.com/2014/04/09/to-the-tune-of-the-tom-jones-classic-song-delilah-whine-whine-whine-caroline/ ]

After presenting Caroline Criado-Perez with our ‘Lying Woman of the Month’ award, I mused that in the light of her emotive response to my polite email, she was a strong contender for this month’s ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’ award. We’ve had so many emails saying she MUST win the award, that we’ve decided to present it to her. Here’s her award certificate:

140409 Caroline Criado-Perez, Whiny Woman of the Month, April 2014
