Comments to think about

This is from a few unhappy supporters in the public.

“After your demonstration on TV everyone is against you because they feel that the judge and neighbours shouldn’t have to put up with people picketing outside their private homes. When judges etc leave the courts etc, the job ends and their private lives begin.

Are you aware the judges etc do not set the law? The GOVERNMENT does.

Get off your bums, unite and petition at Wellington Parliament. Numbers and Signatures are what count. Write petitions and come visit the public to get OUR signatures. Then rally the men, women and children and MARCH. March down Queens street, march in Wellington to parliament and produce all the signatures you have collected. Ring television stations and radios when ready for the march.

Men don’t alienate yourselves from the public. Do it for the men suffering now and in the future.

GET ORGANISED. GET ORGANISED. Stand up and be counted. We know the bias and unbalance.”


  1. People operate out of their own insecurities.

    I for one took time to face up to reality even after my Son was Stolen.

    I desperately hoped the Nation, its Laws, its Social Policy, its pillars would get my Son back.

    These people who have their eyes shut are in denial and prefer to have a Nation that will support their dreams.

    The time will come when they will listen to the obvious to those of us who have touched the system.

  2. Julie,


    If you’d bothered to look into this objectively you’d see they have many supporters.

    Whilst I see noble intentions I wish you’d think more before commenting sometimes. I imagine these folks need support, not unthinking criticism right now. God knows they have enough to contend with facing up to the feminazzi powers that be. Now is not the time for a softly softly approach – better policy is to stand up to the bullies IMO.

    By the way getting organised in a hikoi fashion as you suggest may actually be a very smart move.
    It could be done in conjunction with the current protests NOT instead of them.

    Here’s another bit of food for thought Julie – As was the case with Fathers for Justice in the UK, public protests have done more to highlight the aweful plight of dads and kids in our femily caughts than a mass of letter writing and more polite campaigning.

    ‘Sometimes you just have to be a man’ – Johny Cash.

    All power to you Jim B and company.
    Kia kaha braves.

  3. Julie,
    My unreserved apology.
    Reading you post again I see I misread it as being your personal comment, when in fact you were merely reporting the views of a few others.
    However, I wish that alongside of forgiving me you would also be so kind as to divert my misguided message to you to them.

  4. the judge and neighbours shouldn’t have to put up “….with people picketing outside their private homes. When judges etc leave the courts etc, the job ends and their private lives begin.”

    And while they are enjoying their private lives, the lives they have helped toward purgatory during the work day, carry on suffering.

  5. dpex. you have said the job ends when they leave the court etc.Lawyers for children visit schools and homes to follow up with their clients. Your statement is incorrect.

  6. judges and family court lawyers have to and need to face up to the lie they are living in the name of a fat pay cheque, it’s that simple!

  7. Today i was advised 25mins before a hearing by the applicants Lawyer that his client was on legal aid. This affected my award on costs to defend.The protection order was not granted and as we are well aware the award to me will only be up to $750.00. This lawyer has breached the rules by not advising me the defendant that their client was on legal aid. I am only to happy to protest outside these peoples homes right. This is a example of leagl aid gray train lawyers.
