BBC Radio Tees interviews Ray Barry, J4MB candidate at the 2015 general election

We recently covered a story about a 58-year-old man with a long criminal history, who first became a father at 16, has existed on benefits for the past 10 years, and who’s escaped a prison sentence (after a conviction for drug dealing) due to wanting to look after his 7-month-old baby. He has 22 children by 11 different women, and suffers from back pain. Perhaps the two matters are related. Our blog piece on the matter:

Ray Barry leads the Equal Parenting Alliance and Real Fathers for Justice, and will be standing as a J4MB candidate at the May 2015 general election. He appears regularly on BBC Radio talking about family-related matters, and recently appeared on BBC Radio Tees talking about the case of the 58-year-old man, and the wider repercussions of people using children as ‘Get Out Of Jail Free’ cards. The audio file has just been loaded onto our YouTube channel. At 4:15, after Ray’s interviews, there’s a contribution by the colourful anti-feminist Katie Hopkins, who invariably manages to speak common sense and entertain at the same time. Enjoy:


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.

    Ray Barry seems like the kind of guy I’d like to spend a couple of hours in the pub with. Loved his point about contraception and abortions and the fact that women are every bit as responsible as men for the children they conceive. I’ve been saying this for decades and it’s great to hear it on National radio. What a great interview all round!

    • I spent a couple of hours in the pub with him just before Xmas and he’s a very engaging and likeable guy. He’s always impressive on the radio even when contributing over the phone, not the easiest thing to do, in my experience.
