Why we’ll be contesting Conservative marginal seats in 2015

People are sometimes surprised that we’re going to contest marginal Conservative marginal seats in 2015, rather than marginal Labour seats. We explain that under David Cameron’s leadership the party has followed all of the preceding Labour governments’ agendas with enthusiasm, in some areas going even further (e.g. threatening to legislate gender quotas for major corporate boards).

If we’re asked the same question in future, we might just point people to a video (on the YouTube channel of ‘MrShadowfax42’) of a Tory MP, David TC Davies MP, speaking in the House of Commons. The narratives are always the same. All single mothers are saints. All absent fathers are feckless.

What planet do these damnable people live on? It’s the state which enables vindictive women to stop their children’s fathers from seeing them for long enough to alienate the children, and very few judges are prepared to enforce contact orders – and these absent fathers are feckless? Denial of access to children is a significant contributor to the persistently high male suicide rate. The video:


An insightful line-by-line commentary of the speech, from MrShadowfax42:

Good to see AVfM covering the story:


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    As long as loony left policies can be repackaged as chivalry, white knight wannabe conservatives will swallow any social agenda thrown their way.

    • Nick, I couldn’t agree more. Right-of-centre men are even keener than left-of-centre men to pacify women in general, and gender feminists in particular, whatever the costs to nuclear families, society, and so much else. The most extraordinary examples are the many FTSE100 chairmen who are members of the 30% club, dedicated to increasing the proportion of women on major corporate boards, although it’s perfectly clear one consequence will be corporate financial decline.

  • Thanks Mike. I spotted that and had to take a video of it on my phone. I know the way these BBC parliament videos work, almost impossible to find after a month or so, and I wanted to make sure I had a record of it. Davies not only demonises fathers, but also manages to patronise and infantilise women also – witness “got her pregnant”, “allowed her to have children”… do women have no agency whatsoever according to this guy? Almost unbelievable, and of course his points were not challenged by any other politicians.

    I did my own commentary on his views too by the way: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3jX-AiN7Rc

    • Thanks for that. Will check out your commentary, and in the meantime I’ve (rather belatedly!) added your YT channel to our list of recommended blogs and websites.

      • Thanks Mike, appreciated. AVfM have featured this story also now, so hopefully more people can become aware of just how badly misandric the right are in the UK. Worse than the left for sure by now, unless we just notice these clowns more when they are actually in power.

    • Great commentary, I’ll add the file now to my original post.
