Batman protest admired by NZ group
Fathers in New Zealand are waiting for their own Batman to raise awareness for their cause.
A man dressed as the caped crusader has drawn world wide attention for the plight of dads estranged from their children after staging a five hour protest perched on a ledge at Buckingham Palace.
The Union of Fathers here says they are watching the activities of their British counterparts with interest and admiration.
Spokesman Darrell Carlin says his group has moved from protesting to lobbying, but he is not ruling out similar stunts being staged in New Zealand.

Audio Report: Newstalk ZB UK correspondent Gavin Grey talks to Paul Holmes about the high profile protest by a Fathers’ Rights campaigner who scaled Buckingham Palace dressed as Batman.
Keep watching and I am sure that Batman et al will be appearing in Auckland and Wellington.
Care must be taken so that any kind of similar stunt in NZ does not discredit the cause.
