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 (9% in the UK, according to the Fawcett Society) 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 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, 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 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 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

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.

Norwich screenings of The Red Pill

The first of two screenings of The Red Pill took place last night in Norwich, and it was very well received. Barry Wright, a local man, has invested over £10,000 in funding the screenings and the attendance of a number of people for the Q&A panel including Cassie Jaye, Paul Elam, Erin Pizzey, and Dr RandomerCam. The crowdfunder to help offset his investment stands at £710, please make a donation if you can – here. Thanks.

David Goodwillie, former Scotland international footballer, and David Robertson, his ex-teammate, have been ruled to be rapists and ordered to pay £100,000 damages DESPITE NEVER FACING A CRIMINAL TRIAL

Our thanks to David W for this. The start of the piece:

A former Scotland international footballer and his ex-teammate have been ruled to be rapists and ordered to pay £100,000 damages despite never facing a criminal trial. [my emphasis]

Denise Clair, who was left “devastated” by a Crown decision not to prosecute, sued striker David Goodwillie.

She also sued Goodwillie’s then Dundee United colleague David Robertson.

She claimed they raped her at a flat in Armadale, in West Lothian, after a night out in Bathgate in January 2011.

It was the first civil rape case of its kind in Scotland.

Ms Clair, who previously waived her right to anonymity, said she could not remember what happened after being in a Bathgate bar and woke up in a strange flat the following morning.

The 30-year-old originally sought £500,000 in compensation, [my emphasis] but damages were later agreed at £100,000 in the civil action at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

The mother-of-one maintained she was incapable of giving free agreement to sex because of her alcohol consumption, but Goodwillie, 27, who now plays with Plymouth Argyle, and Robertson claimed that intercourse had been consensual.

A judge said: “Having carefully examined and scrutinised the whole evidence in the case, I find the evidence of the pursuer (the woman) to be cogent, persuasive and compelling.”

Lord Armstrong said: “In the result, therefore, I find that in the early hours of Sunday 2 January 2011, at the flat in Greig Crescent, Armadale, both defenders (the footballers) took advantage of the pursuer when she was vulnerable through an excessive intake of alcohol and, because her cognitive functioning and decision-making processes were so impaired, was incapable of giving meaningful consent; and that they each raped her.”

The parallels with the Ched Evans case are too obvious to need explaining.

Female doctors with a poor work ethic have brought the NHS to its knees. Now female vets with a poor work ethic are destroying veterinary medicine. Conclusion – we need more women in historically male-dominated professions.

Our thanks to Mike P for this. Yet another article by a journalist (usually but not always female) refusing to point out the blindingly obvious gendered explanation for the problem at hand, in this case the shortage of young vets willing to work with animals other than family pets. For many years a majority of veterinary medicine students and graduates have been female (as in human medicine). The consequences have been utterly predictable.

An extract from the piece, with J4MB translations in square brackets

Julian Norton, who appears in The Yorkshire Vet, a reality television series based on Herriot’s old practice in Thirsk, North Yorks, said the number of applicants for jobs at rural mixed surgeries – where both farm animals and pets are treated – was in decline.

Instead, graduates [female graduates] are choosing positions in larger practices where they do not have to make difficult decisions on their own or be called out to muddy farms late at night, he said.

“People [women] are turning to surgeries where there are more cats, dogs and rabbits, as there is a general perception that a small animal job is easier,” he told The Daily Telegraph. “There are often less out-of-hours complaints, you don’t have the 2am cow to calve and you don’t have to spend three hours in the mud and rain.

“In mixed practice, you have stretches of 19 days without a day off and 11 nights on call, rain lashing down. People [women] don’t want to do that any more.”

The Women and Equalities select committee is calling for evidence over concerns workplaces are not providing support to working fathers

Interesting. But doubtless the committee’s final report will say workplaces ‘should’ do more for working fathers. Reflections:

  1. This is transparent virtue signalling, appearing to show concern for fathers, whilst not diverting any state resources to them. A double win for the state, and for this committee, to which Philip Davies has just been appointed. Maybe his appointment was the spur for this move, which is nothing more nor less than propaganda.

  2. It utterly ignores the fact that organizations are already reeling under the ‘support’ provided to working mothers. In the state sector, taxpayers – men, mainly – pay for the consequent inefficiency and ineffectiveness, while service users suffer  – the NHS is but the most obvious example at the moment – while in the private sector one consequence of the inefficiency and ineffectiveness is loss of competitiveness, a concept alien to most politicians, including the dire Maria Miller, the Conservative MP who chairs the Women & Equalities Select Committee.
