Another reminder of why the reputation of the Telegraph has plummeted among people with right-of-centre political persuasions in recent years. Michael Deacon is the paper’s ‘Parliamentary Sketchwriter’ and you might reasonably expect him to critique at least some of the policies in our election manifesto. You might, but you’d be disappointed. His piece, published online about 18 hours ago, is nothing more than a lazy sneer at the only political party in the UK campaigning against the state’s assaults on the human rights of half the country’s citizens.
He appears, from his photograph, to be a fairly young man. One day, after a divorce court has handed over much of what he’s worked hard for over many years to his ex-wife, and a family law court has failed to ensure him access to the children who the state forces him to support financially, he’ll sing a different tune.
If he then seeks support from men’s rights advocates, I hope they tell him to go to hell.
