If the controls don’t work, it’s probably out of control – UK

Sat 31st October 2009:

Funny how the controls on employing paperboys seem to be so much more stringent than the controls on spying on citizens? Everything not forbidden, is compulsory! (postulated by physics theorist Murray Gell-Mann) In human behavior, over large populations, everything not impossible, will happen? Murphy McMannus Can you even remember back to 1984? Anti-terror powers used […]

Treating non-abductor as though they were the abductor Germany

Thu 29th October 2009:

One eyed “judges” handling of parental child abduction Michael’s story is long and shows much wastage of the joy and happiness that family life would normally bring.

No rules of evidence for sexual violence allegations

A proposal from the two-year taskforce for action on sexual violence, issued yesterday, would reverse the usual rules of evidence for sex cases.

Kevin Driscoll

Thu 22nd October 2009:

The case of Kevin Driscoll, accused of rape and currently under house arrest in Oregon, USA is a men’s rights issue going begging.

Aisling Symes Disappearance

AISLING SYMES DISAPPEARANCE This has been a horrible situation for Aisling’s family. Our hopes were with them and we now grieve with them for their tragic loss.

Father’s suicides or parental suicides?

Wed 14th October 2009:

Dear Wendy, I read your article about father’s suicides, with quite a bit of pain. While men’s suicide shows up grossly and obviously in national suicide statistics, I suspect that women’s suicides due to court traumatisation from removal of relationships with children is a faster growing problem. The feeling of traumatisation due to injustice does […]
