The team is busy working seven days per week drafting the 2015 general election manifesto, and it’s already over 70 pages long. Many of our proposals will be thought controversial by people unfamiliar with men’s human rights issues – the proposal on compulsory paternity testing at birth being an obvious example – so we’re preparing extensive background information to explain why the proposals are being made. This is all taking even more time and effort than we were anticipating, but when we’re finished, the result should be a document with content which will be of value to both J4MB and men’s human rights advocates in general for years to come.
To help us focus more intensely on drafting the manifesto, we’ll be spending less time in the coming weeks on the activities which normally take up so much of our time – such as posting blog pieces, publicly challenging prominent figures, presenting awards… and acknowledging and responding to emails. We ask for your understanding of all this at a very intense time. Thank you.
We plan to publish our manifesto on this website in the second half of October.
