Ray Barry’s the leader of the Equal Parenting Alliance, a political party, but will be standing for J4MB in Wolverhampton South-West at the May 2015 general election. He’s regarded as a national authority on the damage wrought by the family courts system on fathers and children, and he spends a good deal of his time supporting fathers trying to gain access to their children. He and his ex-wife together spent over £100,000 on legal bills in a custody battle. He failed to gain regular access to his three children, all of whom are now adults, and with whom he’s no longer in contact (they live with their mother). He was recently interviewed on BBC Radio West Midlands (it’s on our YouTube channel) and he was interviewed three days ago by BBC Radio 5 Live. Ray’s latest interview is also on our YouTube channel, link below. It ends at 5:17:
The presenter, Rachel Burden, was the very epitome of a sympathetic and professional interviewer. We defy anyone to listen to this interview and not be deeply moved by Ray’s account of the situation faced by himself and so many other fathers, as well as his account of how he hopes to see his children again one day. Ray’s interview is followed by an hour-long piece in which Rachel Burden talks to separated fathers and mothers about their Xmas arrangements with their children.
You’ll be hearing a lot more from us over the 18 months before the 2015 general election about the barbaric assaults on father’s and children’s human rights, which are the consequences of both poor legislation and an ultimately self-serving family courts system.
