Would you let men like these near your children?

Fathers4Justice have staged a rooftop protest at Harriet Harman’s home and are insisting they’ll stay there until their demand to speak with her has been met. Fine. I’ll happily contribute to a fund to pay for HH to stay at a hotel long enough for these clowns to get tired of their rooftop conditions and slope off back to wherever they came from.

They do this sort of thing for the publicity and, true to form, the media give them exactly what they want, so guaranteeing other similar stunts (and yes, I know I’m writing about them too, but no-one’s reading this apart from you).

You have to ask yourself: are these the kind of men you would actually want to spend time with your children of a weekend? Men who think that dressing up as a superhero and occupying a government minister’s home is in any way justified or normal?

And lastly, bravo to the judge who decreed that the addresses of MPs’ second homes should be published. It’s not as if there are any weirdos out there who might use this kind of information for dubious purposes, is it?

  1. You have to ask yourself: are these the kind of men you would actually want to spend time with your children of a weekend? Men who think that dressing up as a superhero and occupying a government minister’s home is in any way justified or normal?

    They do have good case though which has been ignored by the uniformly anti marriage progressive constituency which has presided over breakdown at family level feeding into ongoing misery. The operation of divorce against men in this country is often brutal and no-one will listen.
    This assault on the father is felt especially in the workingclasses whose values New labour hold in contempt .( See- dislike of marriage and encouragement of floods of immigrants)
    If they were Lawyers and Jounalists then you would be happy no doubt , you would be able to have good old chin wag amongst fellow elitists . But they are not , they want to make their point but they do not want to hurt anyone ,it could be worse. and Harriet Harperson might like to look in the face of some of the people from whom she has taken everything .

    PS Your guff about why the English should continue to have lews democratic rights than the Scots was cobblers .With all the time you must have on your hands I`m amazed you coud not come up with anything better than that.

    Well, I certaintly don’t think occupying the roof of a ministers house is right, but this article is rather mean spirited.
    Dressing up as a superhero may not be normal but as you admit yourself it has brought attention to their cause, one which is felt by many as legitimate. HH who you would ‘happily pay for’ to stay in her hotel won the deputy leadership contest by making that ‘unoriginal’ tack to the left.

    TH- “It’s not as if there are any weirdos out there who might use this kind of information for dubious purposes, is it?” I do hope you are applying this logic to idendity cards!

  3. As a divorced father, of course I understand their cause and believe they have a point. But this kind of behaviour simply alienates everybody. What advances have they made for their cause using these tactics? Fathers4Justice has gone from being an organisation no-one had heard of to an organisation no-one has any sympathy for.
