Why J4MB won’t be fielding candidates in the June 8 general election

Despite consistent Downing Street claims in recent months that Theresa May wouldn’t call an early general election, we believed it likely that she would, if only because of the persistent strong Conservative leads over Labour in major opinion polls (currently around 20%).

The election will be on June 8, a little over seven weeks away. We shall not use our limited resources in fielding candidates for the election. It will take years of campaigning efforts – on the street and elsewhere – to raise the awareness of large numbers of voters about the issues we campaign about.

We were planning to launch our street campaigning on July 8, giving us almost three years before the 2020 general election. Following today’s announcement we may still launch it on the same day, giving us five years before the June 2022 general election.

Onwards and upwards!

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
