WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leastways, Hooker won. Jesus but this man is good…in all meanings of the word.

The CYPs witches are going to be sooooooo pissed at this. A mere male beating them at their own game!!! Sock horror!

Finally, folks! An FC Alice In Wonderland-fest got to the High court and was found so wanting.

The judgement goes on for 90 pages. Haven’t read it yet. Going to now.

Remember I said to you all. If we win the appeal it will make a huge difference to the MENZ and Men’s movement against this bizarre theatre of the FC, and if we lost all hell would break loose.

Well……………………..WE WON!!!!

I shall report back when I have read and properly understood the judgment.

One small step for me. One huge leap for men!!!!

Better yet, we get to sue the other side for costs!!!


I am so happy at this moment.



  1. Congratulations David. I look forward to hearing more details so I can understand the full meaning of your win.

  3. Hi David,
    What appeal was that? I don’t know of your case so I am not up to date, but I would love to hear more details. Did you win custody of your child? Please keep us all informed and inspire us with some hope.

    Cheers and congrats,

  9. David,

    I can imagine the judge has refered to many Acts/Laws in his judgement and yes, Hooker is showing his skills of finding flaws in the law to ‘WIN.’ (good referral, David) And well done for winning.

    I am sure you will have read and understand the 90 pages by now, in excitement. Please tell us what it means? What did you win?

  10. I don’t think it really matters what exactly you won. It is the fact of winning that counts. It makes you feel better and raises your self-esteem. And that’s why there’s so much joy in this post 🙂 And it’s energized me with positivity, for which I am grateful 🙂
