Help J4MB launch our general election campaign – £2,820 raised already

HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN 2015

A major public advertising campaign for the 2015 general election

£39,500 NEEDED NOW!

In less than seven months – 7 May, 2015, to be precise – British citizens will have their first opportunity to vote in a general election in defence of the human rights of men and boys, and we’re raising the money we need to HAMMER OUT OUR ELECTION MESSAGE. Please help us do that.

WE NEED £39,500 and we’re launching this 2-WEEK FUNDRAISER to fund a PLANNED CAMPAIGN. Since we launched J4MB in February 2013, we’ve made no secret of the scale of our ambitions. Ray Barry and I will be standing as election candidates. I’ll be standing in Bedford and Kempston, Ray in Wolverhampton South-West. We plan to attract enough votes to send the message that one day the main political parties will have no option but to engage with us, to deter us from contesting their marginal seats in future general elections.

OUR STRATEGY IS RIGHT, OUR CAUSE IS JUST, and our campaign has been thoroughly planned. We’ve had major input from professional marketing people who are giving their time for nothing. WE KNOW WHO OUR TARGET VOTERS ARE and WE KNOW HOW TO GET OUR MESSAGE TO THEM, but we need your help, because it will cost money -£39,500 TO BE PRECISE.

Ray and I are going to give this everything we’ve got. Every ounce of energy will go into this campaign. WE’RE GOING TO TELL IT LIKE IT IS – no holds barred – our planned messages are powerful. We will be appealing to the voters’ deepest emotional reactions, through billboard hoardings, bus route adverts, and direct-delivered leaflets – all targeted at specific neighbourhoods where we know our target voters live. We’re not wasting time or energy on non-productive areas.

PLEASE HELP US SEND THIS CLEAR MESSAGE TO VOTERS. Please help us make that vital difference through the ballot box.

PLEASE GIVE WHAT YOU CAN. We hope to raise the full amount, but our plans are flexible: WE CAN USE WHATEVER YOU GIVE EFFECTIVELY. YOU can play a vital role in ending the state’s assaults on the human rights of men and boys. Vote for J4MB.

PLEASE GIVE NOW! YOUR CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS THE £39,500 WILL BE WELL SPENT. Thank you for your support, as always.

Justice for men & boys

(and the women who love them)

Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

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.

Kathy Gyngell: ‘Pity John Humphrys…’.

An interesting piece which includes some welcome words about Laura Bates. The intellectually-challenged hysterical blonde harridan (Laura, not Kathy) has fewer than 48 hours remaining to respond to our public challenge, and retract her lie about the number of women who are raped every year in the UK. Ms Bates confidently asserted on Free Speech Live that the number is 85,000, although official statistics show that fewer than 1,000 British men are convicted of the crime every year. Maybe each of these men raped 85+ women, on average? Or maybe… look, I know this will sound crazy, but let’s entertain the possibility… maybe a lot fewer than 85,000 women are raped by men every year in the UK?

We publicly challenged Loopy Laura to substantiate her whackadoodle claim, and you’ll be stunned to learn she hasn’t responded to the challenge. We’re so sure she won’t respond, that we’ll prepare her November ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award certificate tomorrow, in readiness for presenting her with it shortly after our deadline for a response to the challenge, 17:00 on Friday. She’ll join that other ray of sunshine, Caroline Criado-Perez, in having won the award twice.

Two important donations to the J4MB appeal – £15 and £1,000

Two donations this evening have particularly pleased us. The first was £15 from a young lady, the mother of two young sons, who is understandably concerned about their futures in a state education system run by women to help girls succeed at the expense of boys. I first met her around the time I was thinking of establishing  J4MB – in January 2013, I think – and her enthusiasm for the project was inspiring. I can’t thank her enough. A charming woman, who I know can ill-afford to make donations to J4MB, but she does so, anyway.

We were also pleased by the second donation, for £1,000, which has brought the appeal total to £2,620. This is the largest ever single donation to J4MB, although a number of individual donors have sent in more over a period of time. We have the donor’s email address, and we’ve asked him (or possibly her, the person’s gender is unclear from the email address) to write a short piece explaining the motivation behind this donation. We’d like to think it’s a testament to the growing importance of our work. Should you wish to make your own contribution towards that work, you can do so here.

Thank you for your support.

Jogger ‘stable’ after brushing against toxic amphibian

We always have time for some light relief here at the J4MB global headquarters in Bedford, so we thank K for sending us this. The piece refers to David Cameron’s ‘toad-like ancestors’. Now whatever gave them that idea? Maybe his three ‘Toady of the Year’ awards? His 2014 award certificate is here.

Crowdfunder stands at £1,605. Angry Harry talks about donating to causes you believe in.

Our thanks to all the generous people who’ve got the crowdfunder off to a flying start – £1,605 has been raised already. With 11 days to go before the appeal ends – 23:59 on Sunday 9 November – we need to raise a further £37,895. It’s an ambitious target, but if even a small proportion of those who regularly visit this website made a donations, we’ll reach the target. If you’re unconvinced that it’s worth donating financially to causes you believe in, you really should catch Angry Harry’s excellent podcast from last Sunday.

Nobody associated with J4MB has ever drawn any income from donations, and we doubt that will ever change (if it does, we’ll tell you in advance). Please demonstrate that you value all the work we’ve done, and continue to do, by donating here. The donation page suggests £100 – a figure put there by Indiegogo, the crowdfunder ‘host’, not at our suggestion – but if you just click on the ‘100’ you can enter any sum you choose.

Thank you for your support of our work.

Crowdfunder – an important notice

It’s just been brought to our attention that when people log onto our crowdfunder and click on the button to make a donation, they’re meet with what appears to be a suggested donation of £100. We wish to make it clear this wasn’t done at our request. We’ll obviously be grateful for each and every donation, regardless of size, and we’ve had donations down to £5.00. Some people have pressed on and discovered they can enter the amount of their choice. We’ve just emailed Indiegogo – the crowdfunding ‘host’ – requesting that the page be replaced with a number of suggested amounts, but more importantly, also a blank box for people wishing to enter different amounts.

David Cameron refuses to wear a ‘This is what a feminist looks like’ T-shirt

An excellent piece by Laura Perrins for The Conservative Woman website. At long last Cameron has done something right, however small. Enjoy. But be warned. We advise you not to open the link in the piece to a Telegraph article if you’ve just eaten. J4MB isn’t in a position to financially compensate people who throw up over their computer keyboards when they see the photographs of Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg wearing ‘This is what a feminist looks like’ T-shirts.

Election crowdfunder has already passed the £1,000 mark

Around an hour ago AVfM published my article about our advertising crowdfunder. It has already resulted in donations of £300, including £100 from Paul Elam himself, bringing the current total to £1,010. Please support us with whatever you can afford. This is going to be a high-profile advertising campaign, and it well send a very strong message:

The state must stop its relentless assaults on the human rights of men and boys.
