Our thanks to HEqual for pointing us to this. Followers of this blog may recall the vile misandrous DCI Leanne Pook. She’s a personal friend of the male anti-FGM campaigner Sami Ullah, who claimed a Somali taxi driver told him he’d been responsible for having his daughter circumcised. It was clear before the man’s show trial that there was no case to answer, there was no evidence of the daughter having suffered any physical harm, but the trial proceeded all the same. It was the latest of a number of FGM trials to collapse for lack of evidence. Our blog piece on the scandal is here.
About Mike Buchanan
Mike Buchanan is a British men's rights activist (MRA) and anti-feminist. He was the founder and former leader (2013-20) of this party, and handed over the leadership to Elizabeth Hobson in May 2020.
J4MB remains the only party in the English-speaking world which is resolutely anti-feminist and campaigns for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. Those rights are assaulted by states' actions and inactions in many areas, almost always to privilege women and girls. 20 such areas were explored in the party's 2015 general election manifesto.
Mike was a business executive for 30 years before taking early retirement in 2010. He's written 10 books and is also a publisher. His last three books have been concerned with gender and gender politics, the most recent being Feminism: the ugly truth (2016).
Mike is the creator of the website Laughing at Feminists.
He has sole responsibility for organizing future International Conferences on Men's Issues (ICMIs) in Europe and North America, and was a key organizer of the London conferences in 2016, 2018 and the 120-speaker online conference in 2020.
