J4MB is fortunate in having supporters who are willing to devote time, energy, and expertise to support the party in a wide variety of ways. One was recently the author of a remarkable report on the institutional anti-male bias of public bodies, with a particular emphasis on how that leads inevitably to a lack of concern and support for male victims of partner violence. 94% of men who are abused by partners are abused by female partners. The public bodies and institutions include:
– Home Office
– Crown Prosecution Service
– the police
– Probation Service
– Ministry of Justice
– the judiciary
– Equality and Human Rights Commission
The supporter generously agreed to our request that we use his report as part of our submission to the Home Office’s consultation on strengthening the law on domestic abuse. Another key supporter and myself have been burning the midnight oil in recent times adding further material, and we believe the 118-page-long final report submitted an hour ago to the Home Office is strong in terms of both breadth and depth.
[Note: The report was later modified to a more visually appealing 154-page report.]
The other element of our submission to the Home Office was a copy of our recent public challenge of Theresa May, Home Secretary, to hold a public inquiry – here.
Please let us know what you think of our submission, by sending in your comments. If you’d like to demonstrate your support for our work in a more tangible way, we invite you to make a donation, possibly ordering an individually numbered J4MB wristband, for which we ask a minimum contribution of just £5.00 (inc p&p). You can make a donation and/or order wristbands through this link.
Thank you for your support. Without it, J4MB wouldn’t exist. With your support, we’ll be around for many years to come. I’m personally committed to fighting general elections until at least 2030, when I’ll be 72 – whether as leader, or otherwise.
It’s been a long day.
