International Men’s Day (Saturday, 19 November) – march from the Royal Courts of Justice to the Houses of Parliament

On International Men’s Day, we’ll be supporting this. The march will be from the Royal Courts of Justice to the Houses of Parliament – 11:00, Saturday, 19 November. The full description:

Family lives matter.

Time to talk, Time to listen, Time to act,
suicide is not an option.

Fighting for family law reform and equal rights.

Aiming to highlight the failings of the family/divorce courts and associated organization’s that can lead to so many men committing/considering suicide. Also a celebration of all fathers and mens groups that help in these dark times.

We aim to show the magnitude of the problem by taking teddies/dolls to parliament with our children’s first names attached. Each teddy/doll representing a child missing out on the love of a father, grandfather, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, siblings and cousins. After the event the teddies and dolls will be donated to a childrens charity.

The name tags sent to parliament.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1, we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

An invitation to become a party member

In the wake of the recent highly successful International Conference on Men’s Issues, which we co-hosted with A Voice for Men, we invite people concerned about the assaults on men’s and boys’ human rights to become party members. Monthly subscriptions from party members are the financial lifeblood of our political party.

When J4MB was launched in February 2013, we had no basis for forecasting how well, if at all, we would be received by the general public. At that time, the prevailing public conviction was that feminists pursue gender equality, in stark contrast to what was demonstrably true.

Only a small minority of women are feminists. They seek gender supremacy, regardless of the impact on men, women, boys, girls, families, public institutions, and wider society. They are driven by misandry (the hatred of men). If anyone should doubt the truth of these assertions, we invite them to read our 2015 general election manifesto. It explored 20 areas where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state, usually to advantage women and/or girls. There are no areas in which the state assaults the human rights of women and/or girls specifically.

The 20 areas are:


Foetal alcohol syndrome

Genital mutilation

Fatherlessness, restoring strong families



Access to children after family breakdowns

Domestic violence

Sexual abuse

Armed Forces veterans’ mental health issues



Criminal justice system

Paternity fraud

Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders


Healthcare provision

Political representation

State interference in director appointments

Expectation of retirement years

The assaults on men and boys are often led or enabled by feminists in influential positions e.g. Theresa May MP (Prime Minister, formerly Home Secretary) and Alison Saunders (Director of Public Prosecutions). Most of the assaults, however, are led by men with no concern for the wellbeing of men and boys as a class.

J4MB is the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. We are reliant on party members and donors to cover the party’s costs, and nobody connected with the party draws any personal income from donations.

Supporters (including donors) tell us we can be proud of what we’ve achieved in three and a half years. Donors have sent sums ranging from £2 to £2,000. We’ve had over 100 appearances on mainstream television and radio – here. Countless newspaper, magazine, and blog pieces have been written about us. The tone of the reporting has usually been challenging and often antagonistic, which we expected, but we have also been surprised by the interest we have triggered in some of the most unlikely people, and we can be sure that we have broken the blanket belief that men’s and boys’ issues are either non-existent, or unimportant. The comments streams following online articles have been very supportive of J4MB and what we’re seeking to achieve.

Our long-term strategy is to challenge the party in power (or parties, in the event of a coalition) because only they have the power to reverse anti-male legislation and policy directions.

We’re working towards the 2020 general election, in which we’ll field candidates in Conservatives seats. In coalition with the Liberal Democrats from 2010, and in sole power from 2015, the Conservatives have been no less anti-male than the Labour party, in some areas going even further than the Labour administrations of 1997-2010.

We’re going to raise our game in a number of areas, which will require a stronger financial base. We wish to increase our membership base in order to meet increasing campaigning costs, and to help build a ‘fighting fund’ for the 2020 general election.

We invite you to become a party member. It’s the most efficient way to demonstrate your support of our work, reducing the need for the periodic appeals upon which we relied in the past. It will also free up valuable time for political campaigning, which would otherwise be spent on fundraising.

We’ve established a range of membership grades, ranging from monthly sums of £5.00 (16 pence per day) to £100.00 (£3.28 per day):

Membership grade                  Monthly donation                   

Bronze                                                        £5.00

Silver                                                          £10.00

Gold                                                            £25.00

Platinum                                                    £50.00

Diamond                                                    £100.00

Members will receive a signed membership certificate, one of the A3 leaflets we were distributing during the 2015 general election – the window poster element is here – and two individually numbered silicone wristbands.

We’d prefer you set up a Standing Order payable directly into the J4MB account, thereby ensuring the full sum of your donations go to J4MB. Our account details:

Account name: Justice for Men & Boys

Sort code: 309054

Account number: 54880968

IBAN: GB08LOYD30905454880968


Monthly donations can be set up through PayPal, although (small) commissions are taken from donations made that way:

If you want to put in place a regular donation of another amount, we would of course be deeply grateful.

Please email me with the membership grade you’ve settled on, the name you’d like printed on your membership certificate, and your address. Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,

Mike Buchanan

Mike Buchanan to plead ‘Not Guilty’ to the charge of obstructing the highway – Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court, 12 October

[Note added 6.10.16: this post was originally published 20.7.16.]

I spent most of today in Westminster Magistrates’ Court. Last Saturday I received a summons to appear in the court at 09:30 today – giving me just two working days to obtain legal advice – in connection with my alleged obstruction of the highway during our anti-MGM protest in Parliament Square on 1 June. A video (14:52) is here, my arrest by a (Kiwi) policeman takes place soon after 13:30.

I registered my presence with the relevant person, and it was immediately clear something was amiss. At 11:30 – two hours after my arrival – I was informed the police / CPS hadn’t submitted any papers. Responding with lightning speed, at 15:30 the papers were made available, and I duly explained I’d be pleading ‘Not Guilty’ at the trial, and went through some tedious related form-filling.

Starting at 16:00 I spent some 10 minutes with the magistrate, the CPS prosecutor, and a legal expert. It surely goes without saying that no apology was forthcoming from the CPS for wasting most of my day.

I shall be representing myself – I’ll be pleading ‘Not Guilty’ – and cross-examining the two police persons (one man, one woman) at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court. The trial will start at 10:00 on 12 October, and there will be spaces for the public to watch events. I hope to see some of you there, please email me ( if you can make it. I need to enter the court by 9:30, but it would be good to meet with supporters outside the court building from 9:00. Thank you for your support.

The second International Conference on Men’s Issues (London) was a resounding success

10 July 2016 - group shot

The conference finished yesterday, and the overwhelming consensus was that it had been a resounding success. 200 people attended, from 20 countries. All 20 presentations – five of them by women, one by Philip Davies MP (C, Shipley) – were well received, and the attendees greatly enjoyed the social side of the event as well.

Videos of the presentations are on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

Rose Matafeo and the death of comedy on the BBC

Have I Got News For You is a ‘topical panel show’ which has been broadcast on BBC TV since 1990, 26 years ago. The team captains (with the odd break or two) have been the insufferably smug Ian Hislop, and Paul Merton, a once-talented comedian who seems ever more embarrassed with each show, presumably at how much money he’s earning in return for so little effort.

To say the programme is tired would be an understatement. Almost all BBC comedy is dead, or dying, because of the influence of feminists at the state broadcaster. Sandi Toxic is currently killing QI, only hatchet-faced BBC feminazis could ever have imagined she could replace Stephen Fry. BBC feminists are parasites, one and all.

I very seldom watch Have I Got News For You these days, but I watched tonight’s episode. The token female ‘comedian’ was a New Zealander, Rose Matafeo. If you can find even one significant contribution from her (humorous or otherwise) over the 30 minutes, please submit a comment saying what it was, and the time segment.

Thousands of British comedians could (and would) have made stronger contributions to the show, given the chance. Frankly, a Savoy cabbage would have contributed more comedic content than Ms Matafeo, and cost licence fee payers a great deal less.

BBC licence fee payers deserve better than this.

MGM: Is Bob Neill MP, Chair, Justice Committee, (a) unaware of the legal position, (b) unaware and unwilling to find out, or (c) aware, but refuses to admit it?

Since the launch of Campaign for Merit in Business in early 2012, and the launch of J4MB in early 2013, our repeated attempts to engage with politicians, including government ministers, and government departments, have proven fruitless. When we’ve been permitted to formally engage, such as giving oral evidence to a House of Commons inquiry on ‘Women in the Workplace’ in 2012 – video (56:49) here – our factual evidence has been ignored, or rejected without explanation. This simply reinforces our conviction that we must make as large an impact as possible at general elections, and just before Xmas I’ll be starting three and a half years of campaigning in Theresa May’s constituency, Maidenhead.

We keep devoting time and effort to attempting engagement anyway, if only because we’re building up an ever-growing database of evidence of governments’ disinterest in men’s human rights. A supreme example happened today.

Last Monday – four days ago – I mailed a letter to Bob Neill MP (C, Bromley & Chislehurst), who’s the Chair of the Justice Committee. He’s also a barrister – who could be in a better position to engage with the point about MGM being illegal? His short dismissive response is here. The key extract:

You claim the practice is unlawful, but I am neither a judge nor a legal adviser and cannot comment on correct interpretation of the law.

This is remarkable. The ‘correct interpretation of the law’ would be obvious to a first-year law student – MGM is illegal under the Ofences Against the Person Act 1861 and (many would say) earlier Common Law. So, is Bob Neill MP, Chair, Justice Committee:

(a) unaware of the legal position, or

(b) unaware and unwilling to find out, or

(c) aware, but refuses to admit it?

I cannot think of other alternatives, please send a comment if you can. All the alternatives show him in a poor light, but particularly (b) and (c).

In my letter I wrote of our protests in Luton, Golders Green, and elsewhere, and:

We are prepared to risk violence and even death in pursuit of an end to MGM in the UK.

Any right-minded reader would surely interpret the statement as meaning that protestors, not those who oppose us, will be at risk of violence and even death. Yet Bob Neill disingenuously replied to the point with the following, uses it as part of his reason for declining a meeting:

I note with great concern your willingness ‘to risk violence and even death in pursuit of an end to MGM in the UK’. I hope this is merely an accident of language, but such expressions could be interpreted as threatening: I urge you to take greater care in how you convey your position.

The Fiamengo File: Academic Totalitarianism

Excellent (16:35). At around the 10-minute mark Janice turns to comparing academics’ capitulation to feminism in the modern era, with their capitulation to Nazism in Germany in the 1930s.

Two or three days ago we posted a link to the fundraiser to help Janice meet her legal costs at a ‘human rights tribunal’. It’s already reached USD11,800. We put in $100 with the agreement of our largest donor – taking the sum out of his monthly donation – and were impressed to note he’d added another $100. I know many other J4MB supporters have also made generous donations, and I should like to thank them all.

Alice Fraser, Australian ‘comedian’, seeks to discredit ‘The Red Pill’ with the relative occurrences of ‘he’ and ‘she’ in Australian news articles. Predictably, an epic (and unfunny) failure.

Our thanks to Tom for this.

For some time it’s been reliably clear that any woman who describes herself as a ‘comedian’ won’t be funny, and will probably survive financially in small or large measure on money extracted from taxpayers or licence fee payers (Kate Smurfwit and the BBC come to mind).

At least with ‘comediennes’ there’s a chance they might be funny e.g. Katherine Ryan, a Canadian. Now her Wikipedai page describes her as a comedian, but we’d like to think that was the result of editing by a hatchet-faced feminist who chews on a thick slice of lemon first thing every morning, to set her expression for the day. Katherine’s own website is a delight – a masterpiece of comic writing, with a quotation of just six words.

If you feel in need of some light relief after reading the piece – or instead of reading it – we recommend this (video, 4:45) by Jim Jefferies, one of our favourite Australian comedians. It contains the immortal line:

That’s why gay guys are happy, and lesbians are f***ing miserable.

An article about ‘The Red Pill’ in The Daily Telegraph (Australian Edition)

Our thanks to Tom for this. The piece was written by a smug male columnist, a former ‘student socialist’. An extract:

Personally, I’m not really into the whole men’s rights thing. [That’s it, ignore men’s rights, they’ll go away. Oops, they already have, and you’re too stupid to have noticed.]

Most “advocates” strike me as a little bit sad and a little bit obsessive. [I imagine the same could have been said about “advocates” for an end to slavery, improved rights for black people in the US, an end to apartheid in South Africa…]

A few are just plain creepy. [This is journalism of the lowest order. Would he not be more at home at the Australian edition of The Guardian?]

Still, from what I gleaned in the trailer — which of course I also never would have seen had the film not been banned — they didn’t seem like towering tyrants of patriarchal oppression.

Maybe that’s what upset the censors so much. [Such an absurd comment could only have been made by an ignorant person who hasn’t seen the film. What upset the feminist censors so much was that the film was made by a former feminist who stopped being a feminist when she engaged with men’s rights advocates, and realised that what they had to say about gender matters was demonstrably true, and compelling – and that feminist narratives are all a tissue of lies.]

Kathy Gyngell: Hillary’s harpies stumble in search of work-drink balance


A link between feminism and increasing drunkenness and mental health problems among women is obvious, when you think about it. Deep down, the majority of women don’t want to become more like men, and the majority of men don’t want to become more like women. The state is run in complete denial of these realities. But biology will triumph again, when the current order collapses under thr weight of its ridiculous assumptions.

Conservative MP Philip Davies asks what plans there are to commemorate International Men’s Day

Ally Fogg, a feminist commentator on gender matters, published a piece on this matter today. He makes a few good points – that makes a change – but then descends into predictable feminist ideology. The second sentence:

Philip Davies (yes, him again, I know) [My emphasis. Fogg is sneering at one of only two MPs among 650 – both Conservatives – who ever speak up for the human rights of men and boys. The other is Karl McCartney (C, Lincoln)] placed a question to the Women and Equalities ministerial team, asking how the government planned to mark International Men’s Day this year.

For sheer idiocy, this takes some beating:

Here’s the thing about men. As a gender (relatively speaking and globally) we have a lot of power. We have a lot of platforms. We often have loud voices. But as every mental health professional will tell you, as every doctor will tell you, as more than a few wives and girlfriends will tell you, one thing men tend to be absolutely terrible at is speaking about our own problems, admitting to our own vulnerabilities, confessing our own weaknesses. This is true of men as individuals and it is equally true of men as a gender.

It’s the tired old ‘men should be more like women, and talk about their problems’ argument, and as always, nothing is said about reactive depression, where ‘talking about problems’ will do nothing about (for example) being denied access to children or grandchildren, MGM, or countless other issues. Indeed, talking about problems will only open wounds that may be best left closed. Stoicism is a fine masculine quality, and without it, the male:female suicide rate differential would be a damned sight higher than the current 5:1.

Our thanks to John for this, a link to the commentary on the exchanges in the House of Commons (scroll down to 10:27 if you want to see the original):

Conservative MP Philip Davies asks what plans there are to commemorate International Men’s Day.

“Some women might be forgiven for thinking every day is international men’s day,” replies minister Caroline Dinenage, but says the day, which falls on 19 November, will focus on “the very important issue of male suicide” – which Mr Davies also highlights.

The minister adds that it is up to backbenchers to “bid for parliamentary time” to hold a debate to mark the day – as they do to mark International Women’s Day.

Mr Davies says the prime minister takes the matter seriously and alleges that the department does not.

Ms Dinenage says the role of the department is to “tackle inequality wherever we find it”.

Labour MP Christian Matheson says that International Men’s Day could allow “fathers of daughters to express concerns, such as why those daughters might have to wait another 30 years for equal pay” and over violence against women and girls.
