The love that dare not speak its name

By Matt O’Connor, Founder, Fathers4Justice As the father of three boys, I’ve long been aware that showing any affection to your children in public can land you in hot water if you are a dad. Recent media coverage has included the story of dad Craig Darwell, who was staying in a Travelodge with his teenage […]

Will ALL men be branded rapists?

Proposals announced earlier this week by the Department of Justice will allow alleged victims of rape to testify via pre-recorded video WITHOUT having to face cross-examination. This further erosion of the fundamental principles of our justice system is deeply worrying. A new, insidious legal apartheid is revealing itself in the courts, with one law for […]

International Women’s Day: Meet the woman campaigning for Britain’s dads

When actress Kate Winslet became the subject of a Fathers4Justice campaign in late 2013, the brains, braun and the balls behind the controversial ad was – perhaps surprisingly – a woman. Nadine O’Connor, the mother-of-two who locked horns with the Titanic star, is not only the International Campaign Director for Fathers4Justice, but a fierce campaigner […]

If the Nazis ruled Britain, would they have invented anything as unspeakable as our secret family courts?

As the BBC broadcasts its new alternative history TV series SS-GB, which imagines what the UK would be like if the Nazis had invaded Britain, F4J founder Matt O’Connor asks some uncomfortable questions. In 1925, Adolf Hitler declared in Mein Kampf: “The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. […]

‘Deplorable’ Dads Fight Back

For too long men have been the ‘deplorables’ of British democracy, whipping boys for our political elite who have denigrated them for cheap political capital, whilst sucking up to the Mumsnet lobby. Ian Duncan-Smith once told me that fathers and men’s issues had become a ‘political taboo’ amongst politicians desperate to appeal to who they […]

Elmo’s Crusade

A furry red Muppet monster might seem an unlikely figurehead for a one-man campaign, but Elmo is the moniker adopted by fathers’ rights activist Bobby Smith, a dad of two girls, who has been a sharp thorn in the backside of the establishment over the last few years. Smith, a 34-year-old lorry driver from Stevenage, […]

The demonisation of dads is killing kids

When will we learn. Yesterday, another mum was sent to prison for stabbing her children to death. That isn’t to say fathers don’t commit equally heinous crimes, because they do. But what is desperately frustrating and tragic, is that we keep putting children at risk because of our obsession with demonising dads when they are statistically the […]

Climb Higher: Why Dads Need Direct Action

It takes balls to breach national security. Big, brass, bloody balls. It’s easy to talk the talk, but not to walk the walk. That’s why the brave men and women who have risked life, limb and liberty in the pursuit of equality over these last 15 years, deserve the utmost credit and respect. Fathers4Justice was […]
