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 the human rights of men and boys.

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 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 and Ian Young, who’ll also be standing as candidates 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 and their children enjoy reasonable access to each other 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 marginal seats at the May 2015 general election. Our strategy is here. We’ll be contesting a minimum of three adjacent highly marginal Conservative and Labour seats near Nottingham. I’ll be standing in Ashfield, the seat of Gloria de Piero, the Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities. She retained the seat for Labour – historically, a safe Labour seat – at the 2010 general election with a majority of only 192 votes. We plan to also contest three other seats in the area including Loughborough, the seat of Nicky Morgan, the Minister for Women and Equalities.

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. 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 MPs in marginal constituencies losing their seats, to protest at their parties’ relentless pursuit of anti-male agendas. We’re still in the early stages of the awareness building phase of our strategy. In future elections, when we’ll field many more candidates in general 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 classes 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. My email address is mike@j4mb.org.uk, my mobile number 07967 026163. Thank you for your interest in our work.

PARTY LEADER

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.

  2. Just a minor little fact but your website is more popular than the UUP of Northern Ireland. Watch out for most popular political party website chart at the beginning of each month for your chart position http://ukgeneralelection2015.blogspot.co.uk/

  3. I think your stance on father’s seeing their children after separation doesn’t go far enough in ensuring equality between mothers and fathers. Fathers should not have to settle for ‘access’ to their children. They must be treated as equal parents. Both parents should have shared parenting arrangements enforced by law upon separation unless their is a compelling reason to do otherwise. Shared Parenting does not require a 50/50 split in time between parents, but it ensures that both parents have an equal role in their children’s lives. Granting ‘access’ to Dad, whether enforced by the courts or not, while the children ‘live’ with mum, is not equality and keeps fathers as second-class citizens.

    Excellent idea, to target the most marginal seats of the Tories. Of course, the bugger won’t listen to you at all, even if he has pretended to reply, which i doubt. Which is even better.

    Of course, as (Molesworth would have said) “efferbody no” blowing the politicians up and dynamiting the Cities of London and Manchester will get a much quicker and more positive response, as the IRA did victoriously show in the 1990s, as they are now in Parliament. Terrorism always, and invariably, pays. But you must not even pretend to go that way.

  5. Stephen, thank you for going to the trouble of writing such an interesting and informative post. The mass media is appalling in its use of feminist narratives about men’s and women’s rights in countries such as yours. But the men’s human rights movement is well aware of the truth, and there’s lots on ‘A Voice for Men’ http://avoiceformen.com. Where men have more rights than women it’s always to enable them to meet their additional responsibilities. I thought you might find these two videos interesting, covering exactly that point:

  7. Dear Mike
    A friend put me onto you and I’ve been reading your site all day and I must say: Finally, finally, finally someone who is standing up for us men and who understands that feminist women are ruining our lives, our well being, politics and the economy. This country has been waiting for a man like you, and you have my full support!!!
    I too am tired of being bullied by women and always having to be considerate when I’m the one who ends up footing the bill. Every day on my way to work (where 40% of my wages get deducted in tax and get pretty much given straight to women- single mothers, those too lazy to work, those getting cosmetic surgery on the NHS…I should just hand it to the women on my bus myself!) I pass the Women in War memorial on Whitehall- a memorial to women, who did what exactly? knit? cooked? Unlike the thousands men who lost their lives protecting us yet who are commemorated on a less imposing memorial a few hundred yards down. I’m not saying women did nothing for this country but lets be clear they hardly made history. In fact if we look at history it’s men who make history and change the world, so why are we still playing this pandering game! That memorial is only there because feminists rallied for it, because they want to feel part of history without doing the work. Same story in different formats as always.
    I know lots of men who see things your way Mike and you will succeed, you need to for all of us. If this country was run by the likes of you instead of these wimpy excuses for men we’d all be a lot better off. History is made by men, and you will hopefully be one of them Mike.
    Thank you

    Latest chart is out and you are just behind the green party, one more month and you could be as busy as the main parties.

  9. Thanks John. The word ‘masculism’ is already in use, but we believe there will never be a male equivalent of feminism, for reasons it would take me too long to go into. That’s why we favour practical and political means to fight for men’s rights.

  10. With the May elections over the numbers calm down for website visits. so as the other parties fall back you have gone up the charts you are now 5th over taking the Greens and the LibDems
