New Fathers 4 Justice ‘Batman’ has been banned from voting in the Labour leadership election. Despite registering as a supporter under the name Batdad’ some time ago he received an email this morning which stated
‘We have reason to believe that you do not support the aims and values of the Labour Party or you are a supporter of an organisation opposed to the Labour Party and therefore we are rejecting your application.’
Whilst the labour party argue about who can vote or not the truly shocking story is that teenagers are more likely to have a mobile phone than a father.”
In the lead up to the leadership election we are not going to let the Labour Party ignore what’s happening in the secret family courts”
We targeted Harriet Harman’s ‘pink bus’ across the country during the election campaign and confronted her in Stevenage, Croydon, Cambridge, Bedford and Gloucester but the Labour Party still ignored the issue of equality for fathers after family breakdown during the election campaign.
The Labour party are not used to having people oppose them vocally.
For the Labour Party it is equality when it suits and not for all. Men deserve more equality after family breakdown as much as women do in the workplace.
In 2005 when Harriet Harman, QC, then Minister for Constitutional Affairs announced proposals to throw the family courts open so that thousands of hearings, from divorce wrangles over money to contact with children, would no longer be conducted behind closed doors in secret but they did NOTHING!
