Interesting new article in the Daily Telegraph. We don’t know if the headline writer was being ironic with ‘Bullying husbands face jail..’, rather than ‘Bullying partners…’, but it surely reflects the inevitable reality – virtually all the people targeted by these proposals will be men. We see the Home Office is working with a number of organisations, one of them Women’s Aid, whose CEO Polly Neate comes out again with the often-discredited lie that two women a week are being killed by partners or ex-partners. In 2011/12 88 women were killed by partners or ex-partners, a fall of 25% in just ten years.
About Mike Buchanan
Mike Buchanan is a British men's rights activist (MRA) and anti-feminist. He was the founder and former leader (2013-20) of this party, and handed over the leadership to Elizabeth Hobson in May 2020.
J4MB remains the only party in the English-speaking world which is resolutely anti-feminist and campaigns for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. Those rights are assaulted by states' actions and inactions in many areas, almost always to privilege women and girls. 20 such areas were explored in the party's 2015 general election manifesto.
Mike was a business executive for 30 years before taking early retirement in 2010. He's written 10 books and is also a publisher. His last three books have been concerned with gender and gender politics, the most recent being Feminism: the ugly truth (2016).
Mike is the creator of the website Laughing at Feminists.
He has sole responsibility for organizing future International Conferences on Men's Issues (ICMIs) in Europe and North America, and was a key organizer of the London conferences in 2016, 2018 and the 120-speaker online conference in 2020.
