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.

Julie Borowski’s new video

I haven’t seen the original video of which Julie Borowski’s short video is a parody, but it really doesn’t matter. As always, she’s a hoot. Enjoy. She could – and should – make a living as a comedienne.

Melissa Kite: ‘I hate this insidisous trend for belittling men’

Our thanks to Doris for pointing us to this. I doubt many women will either read the article or respond intelligently to it, however. Too many of them have become addicted to bolstering their self-esteem by belittling individual men – usually their partners – as well as men in general. For many years popular culture has been feeding their addictions. I no longer watch drama on television, because so many of the characters are utterly unbelievable.

Laura Bates’s book signing in Hampstead

Yesterday evening I was at Waterstone’s in Hampstead, where Laura Bates was due to give a talk and sign copies of her whine book, Everyday Sexism. I arrived 15 minutes early, bought a ticket, and noted the staff had put out 50-60 chairs. Half were already occupied, mostly by women in their late teens or 20s, the remainder by older women and a few hapless-looking men.

I’d taken along 50 copies of a flyer to hand out, containing the proof that Bates’s repeated claim that, ‘Over two women per week are killed by partners or former partners in the UK’ was false, and that her dogged repetition of the claim after we’d sent her contradictory evidence (government statistics) made her an indisputable liar, and a worthy winner of our latest Lying Feminist of the Month award.

The front row was fully occupied by young women, so I walked along the row, saying:

Hi! Big fan of Laura Bates! Can I give you one of my handouts?

The reaction was positive, and it wasn’t until I’d handed out a number of flyers that the penny started to drop. I handed out flyers to other people, and before long the whining started. In one row of seven 20-something women, one of them said, ‘You claim Laura Bates is a liar. What proof do you have?’ I replied, ‘Well, the proof is in the flyer, but I have a copy with me of the ONS report which proves she’s a liar. Would you like to see the relevant section of the report?’ She replied, ‘No thanks!’, handed the flyer back to me, and the women with her did likewise, in a suitably anxious sheep-like fashion. It was the phenomenon we’re so familiar with, feminists being unwilling to engage with facts which prove their narratives to be lies. For these women, feelings trump facts every time. They might as well have said to me:

Laura’s nice, she’s on the telly and the radio all the time, so she can’t be lying, you’re a bad man for saying it’s even possible! I’m grateful to her for explaining why my life is a complete mess – sexism!!!

One cackling young crone claimed loudly that I had no evidence Bates was lying. I offered to show her the proof – the ONS report – and her cackling became louder. I asked her why she was cackling, a question which appeared to confuse her. I was reminded why we’d presented Laura Bates’s defenders our latest Gormless Feminists of the Month award. Some of these women aren’t… er… let’s be kind… well. Bats in the belfry, and all that.

I got a warmer reception from others, including a 30-something French woman who was prepared to engage in a rational discussion, to my amazement. The men in the audience were predictably hopeless. Those who were with their female partners looked like rabbits dazed by car headlights when I offered them the flyer, while two of three men sitting on their own refused to accept one. I said to one of them, ‘Aren’t you interested that the person you’ve paid to hear talk tonight has been shown publicly to be a liar, but won’t retract her lie?’ He was at a loss for anything to say, and shifted on his seat uncomfortably.

Just before the scheduled start time, two young female members of staff came to me and asked me to leave, saying Laura Bates was nervous, as she’d received death threats. I said I was the last person in the world likely to threaten Laura Bates, as she’s such an asset to J4MB – a feminist who lies publicly, then lies publicly about having lied publicly. But they were politely insistent, so I left. I couldn’t see Bates, who was presumably keeping out of the way lest my shadow fall on her, leading to her instant collapse and death.

We look forward to attending other public events where Bates and other prominent feminists are appearing. No longer can they expect to attend events without being publicly exposed as liars.

£66,000 for every mother lured back into work – the high cost of childcare subsidy

Our thanks to Doris for pointing us to this. When will successive governments understand that mothers of young children don’t want to engage in paid employment, and with good reasons?

Professor Janice Fiamengo and ‘Institutions of Higher Indoctrination’

Janice Fiamengo is a professor at the University of Ottawa. This video is worth catching for anyone deeply concerned by the feminist invasion and manipulation of academia – and we all should be.

William Collins and Herbert Purdy – we salute you

We recently submitted a 118-page report to the Home Office consultation on strengthening the law on domestic abuse. With his permission, we can today reveal the report was the work of William Collins, who did all the research, and deserves rich praise for his work and his clear-mindedness. William is already well-known to followers of this site, as the man behind two impressive websites – mra-uk and Red Pill UK.

Herbert Purdy, who’s also well-known to followers of this site due to his website and substantive comments on a number of J4MB blog pieces, contributed useful additional material, and he’s just much improved the graphic design of the report – here. We thank him, too. With contributors like these fine men, we’re confident J4MB will go from strength to strength.
