Why is Lee Anderson MP (deputy chairman, Conservative party) so close to Martin Daubney, a Reclaim party-backing GB News presenter?

The conference referenced in this blog piece was the International Conference on Men’s Issues (2016).

We’d never heard of the Byline Times before, but from an online article they’ve just published, it’s clearly a far-left website. An extract:

Daubney being openly promoted by the far-right is not an isolated incident. Aside from organising a ‘Straight Pride’ march in 2007, when he was still editor of the magazine Loaded, he’s also been exposed by Hope Not Hate as previously having strong links to the ‘Men’s Rights Activist’ (MRA) movement of misogynists and anti-feminists.

In 2016, he spoke at the International Conference on Men’s Issues, founded by prominent American MRA group A Voice for Men (AVFM). The group’s founder Paul Elam once called for the month of October to be renamed “Bash a Violent Bitch Month”.

Yet Daubney defended Elam in the Telegraph, saying that he and other members of the MRA movement have “long been smeared as some of the internet’s biggest anti-feminist bogeyman”.
