Following a strategic review of our options for the 2020 general election, we adopted a new strategy, elements of which will be revealed in due course.
Mike Buchanan, party leader, will be standing against Theresa May MP, prime minister, in her Maidenhead constituency, which she has represented since its creation in 1997. She is, of course, a self-declared feminist – infamously wearing a Fawcett Society T-shirt bearing the words, ‘This is what a feminist looks like’, when in opposition – and she heads a deeply anti-male and socially unconservative Conservative government, as anti-male as any of its Labour predecessors.
Her government is doing nothing to end the decades-old assaults on the nuclear family, and the denial of access after family breakdowns between children, fathers, and paternal grandparents. The state is responsible for assaulting the human rights of men and boys in many areas, through its actions and inactions. We explored 20 such areas in our 2015 general election manifesto:
- Foetal alcohol syndrome
- Genital mutilaiton
- Access to children and grandchildren 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 company director appointments
- Expectation of retirement years
The decision to stand in Theresa May’s constituency in 2020 was first revealed by the Maidenhead Advertiser, here.
After graduating from Reading University in 1979, I worked in Maidenhead for 10 years. Those years were the happiest years of my working life, and I look forward to meeting again many former colleagues, and to spending as much time as possible in the constituency between now and the 2020 general election, and the ensuing years.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
