Our thanks to Mike for this. It’s the change in the law that Vera Baird QC is so delighted with, judging by her anti-male posters. From the article:
People who psychologically bully their partners now face a jail sentence of up to five years, thanks to a change in the Serious Crime Bill. The new law has made it a crime to act abusively, be controlling or coercive of your partner.
This includes stopping your partner accessing bank accounts…
The change in the law followed on from the Home Office’s cynical ‘consultation exercise’, which didn’t solicit input from academics with knowledge about domestic abuse. The entire exercise was a feminist-run sham. What else could we expect of a department led by Theresa May MP, who infamously posed for the Fawcett Society wearing their ‘This is what a feminist looks like’ T-shirt? One of the images is here.
We publicly challenged Theresa May over the consultation exercise, and submitted a 154-page report, ‘Intimate Partner Violence: The Gender Bias Against Men in England and Wales’, and had nothing more than an acknowledgement of receipt of the documents. Both are accessible here.
