In the course of our door-to-door leafleting, we have some interesting exchanges with people. Mostly positive, when men and women quickly grasp what we’re campaigning about, but it would be dishonest to say this is always the case.
Earlier today we were dropping leaflets through the letterboxes of people in Sutton in Ashfield. One recipient was Ashley B, who later emailed me with the following:
I have a polite notice on my property that asks people not to post unwanted materials through my letter box. I have arrived home today to find one of your leaflets in my letter box, what a waste of paper. Please in future respect my wishes.

So you’re not interested to know the 20 areas in which the state assaults the human rights of men and boys? Not interested in fathers committing suicide because they’re denied access to their kids? Not interested in there being no support for male victims of domestic violence?
In that case, I’m delighted to have annoyed you.
