Following a strategic review of our options for the 2020 general election, we’ve adopted a new strategy, the elements of which will be revealed in due course.
The first element is that I’ll 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. The administration is doing nothing, for example, about the decades-old assaults on the nuclear family, and the denial of access after family breakdowns of children, fathers, and paternal grandparents.
The Maidenhead Advertiser has just exclusively broken the story, here. It’s already attracted one snarky comment, to which I’ve replied. I invite J4MB supporters to post their own comments. Let’s send a clear message to the good people of the Maidenhead constituency that men’s and boys’ human rights have been assaulted by the state’s actions and inactions for too long, and must end.
I worked in Maidenhead from 1979-88, after graduating from Reading University, and lived in nearby Cookham and then Marlow. I started as a graduate trainee with Beecham Toiletries at their plant in Maidenhead – known locally as ‘the Brylcreem factory’, on account of many tonnes of the stuff being made there daily. It was at the time the largest toiletries factory in Europe. I spent the last three years as Chief Buyer, before being headhunted by Gillette.
Those 10 years were the happiest years of my working life, and I look forward to meeting again many former colleagues, and to spending a good deal of time in the constituency between now and the 2020 general election… and for years afterwards, obviously.
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.
