An invitation to become a party member

In the wake of the highly successful International Conference on Men’s Issues (2016), which we co-hosted with A Voice for Men, we invited people concerned about the assaults on men’s and boys’ human rights to become party members. Subscriptions from party members (and others) have since become the financial lifeblood of our political party.

Nobody connected with the party has ever drawn any personal income from party subscriptions and donations, and we don’t expect that to change. If it does change, we shall make a public announcement to that effect, and contact all party members, asking if they wish to continue with their subscriptions.

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, and remains so.

Only a small minority of women (9% in the UK, according to the Fawcett Society) self-identify as feminists. Feminists 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 in which we explored 20 areas where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state, almost always to privilege 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 as follows. The human rights of females – including the unborn – are assaulted in three areas, in bold text:

Abortion

Foetal alcohol syndrome

Genital mutilation

Fatherlessness, restoring strong families

Education

Employment

Access to children after family breakdowns

Domestic violence

Sexual abuse

Armed Forces veterans’ mental health issues

Homelessness

Suicide

Criminal justice system

Paternity fraud

Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders

Divorce

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 – often at the behest of feminists – 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’re also the only anti-feminist political party in the English-speaking world. We continue to be wholly reliant on party members and donors to cover the party’s costs.

Supporters (including donors) tell us we can be proud of what we’ve achieved in the past four years. Donors have sent sums ranging from £1 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 sometimes been challenging and antagonistic, which we expected, but we’ve been delighted by the interest we have triggered in some of the most unlikely people. We can be sure that we’ve 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 marginal 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 ‘war chest’ for the 2020 general election.

One popular and highly visible way of supporting our party is to order a polo shirt, T-shirt, or sweatshirt, from the J4MB store. Shirts are available in men’s and women’s designs, in a wide variety of colours and sizes, in cotton or polycotton, and several designs are available. J4MB receives a commission of £2.50 for each shirt sold.

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 also frees up our 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 blue 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

BIC: LOYDGB21090

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 mike@j4mb.org.uk 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

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.

Maggie O’Farrell: I am, I am, I am

My thanks to Katie for this. She suggests the alternative book title, ‘Me! Me!! Me!!!’ She tells me she reached the link through another claiming Maggie O’Farrell is one of Britain’s greatest living writers. By the same token, I could reasonably claim to be one of Britain’s greatest living pole vaulters.

BBC plans to shunt male stars off their shows to close gender pay gap

Our thanks to Mike P for this piece in the Telegraph. Firing men from their shows is an inevitable element in achieving the absurd objective of ending the non-existent problem of the gender pay gap at the BBC by 2020. We can but hope some of the men bring sex discrimination cases. If they’re successful, we can expect our spineless government to change the law.

Leaving the issue of pay to one side, it seems to me that women already dominate ‘on screen’ at the BBC, with predictable consequences. Although we should see a lot more of Fiona Bruce, obviously.

Philip Davies: BBC ‘Today’ presenter Mishal Husain acted like an official spokeswoman for Jeremy Corbyn, in an interview with Boris Johnson

Appalling. Excerpts:

Tory tensions with the BBC boiled over on June 6 after Husain was accused of acting like a ‘spokesman for Jeremy Corbyn’ in an interview with the Foreign Secretary.

The pair were embroiled in a bad-natured exchange that saw Husain ask Johnson to ‘please stop talking’.

A clearly frustrated Boris replied: ‘Stop talking? You invited me onto this show to talk.’ The appearance sparked off a storm of complaints from Tory MPs.

However, Today editor Sarah Sands has since claimed Mr Johnson apologised after the encounter.

She told The Times Magazine: ‘Boris himself told me later she wasn’t rude and admitted he was a bit hectoring.

‘I think many woman will love her saying, “please stop talking”.’ [J4MB: Sands, a former editress of The Evening Standard, is showing her feminist colours here. If John Humphrys told, say, Emily Thornberry (or Yvette Balls, Jess Phillips, Harriet Harman…) to “please stop talking”, would she say she thought many men would love him saying that?]

Tory MP Philip Davies said the interview was ‘outrageous’.

‘Husain was acting as if she was the official spokeswoman for Jeremy Corbyn,’ he told MailOnline.

‘The BBC is terribly biased but this was a new low even for the BBC.’

(Female) juror forced to leave Old Bailey terror trial after asking if (male) detective was single

Our thanks to a number of people for this piece in The Guardian. The headline is in the subject line of this piece, with the addition of the words ‘female’ and ‘male’, clearly unacceptable to the thought police at the commie rag.

Infogalactic – a new alternative to Wikipedia

Giles Coren is a columnist with the Times, and to say the quality of his output is variable would be a gross under-statement. He recently argued that the female players at Wimbledon should get more prize money than the male players, based on his (alleged) personal preference for women’s tennis over men’s tennis. He didn’t have the audacity to extend the same argument to soccer or rugby.

Coren’s column in today’s edition starts with the following, which piqued my interest because of the blatant corruption of the J4MB Wikipedia page by feminists and SJWs – Philip Cross and The Vintage Feminist, most notably – about which we’ve blogged:

Have you ever noticed that everything on Wikipedia is wrong and wished there were some sort of reference website with nothing but correct facts on it? If so, then what you need is Infogalactic, a new online encyclopaedia I read about this week, founded by alt-right types in America who think Wikipedia is a “Democrat weapon” whose truths are determined “by the left-wing thought police who administer it”. [J4MB – they’re not wrong.] They have responded by building a platform, using MediaWiki software, that looks just like Wikipedia but whose information, they say, is “true, relevant and verifiable”.

This is a great idea…

You can get to the new website here. We wish it every success. The entry on J4MB is here, and is seemingly drawn from a Wikipedia page published before the 2016 London conference.

Who would be the best Conservative MP to replace Theresa May?

From time to time I’m asked which Conservative MP would be my favorite to replace Theresa May, whose time as leader is limited. My first choice would of course be the redoubtable Philip Davies, but he’s always made clear his disinterest in high office.

David Davis might be next, but at 68 he’s perhaps a little too old to take on the mantle. Which leads me to that rare breed of person, an unashamedly conservative Conservative MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg (48). An extract from his Wikipedia page:

At the 1997 general election, Rees-Mogg was the Conservative candidate for the traditional Labour seat of Central Fife and attracted ridicule, after canvassing a largely working-class neighbourhood with his former nanny;[8] on election night he came third, gaining 9% of the votes cast,[14] slightly fewer than half of the votes won by the previous Conservative candidate in 1992. However, rumours that he had toured the constituency in a Bentley were described as “scurrilous” − he insisted it had been a Mercedes.[15]

In common with the hapless David Cameron, four times winner of our Toady of the Year award, JR-M is an Old Etonian, but unlike Dave he is rightly unapologetic about it. James Delingpole wrote a sterling piece on JR-M for the current Spectator edition, Let’s keep up the Moggmentum. Enjoy.
