Does John Key think like David Cameron?

PM must act, not rant, over single parents by Martin Fricker, Daily Mirror 20/06/2011

DAVID Cameron hit out at fathers who run out on their children yesterday and said absent dads deserve to be shamed in the same way as drink drivers.…………

Mr Cameron said: “It’s high time runaway dads were stigmatised and the full force of shame heaped upon them. They should be looked at like drink drivers, people who are beyond the pale.

“They need the message rammed home, from every part of our culture, that what they’re doing is wrong.

“Leaving single mothers – who do a heroic job against all odds – to fend for themselves isn’t acceptable.”

This is what the Tories in the UK think. I wonder if the Tories here think the same?

What positive change has John Key and the National Party made to improve the child support (AKA child tax) system? Nothing!

I wonder how much John Key thinks like David Cameron?


  1. Good point Scrap. David Cameron needs to spend a morning in the Family Court observing the hundreds of Dads who every day struggle at huge personal and financial cost to actually try to be a part of their children’s lives but are kept at arm’s length by alienating ex-partners and a constipated family law system well over due for reform.

  2. Another man lost to feminism! Shame.

  3. John Key may well think like David Cameron. His government is happy to preside over laws based on feminist ideology, intended by feminists if not designed by gullible law-makers to trivialize, sully and sideline men’s wisdom and contribution, to spread sexist inequality favouring women, to encourage the destruction of families and to overturn the very concept of family.

    Yet both John Key and Australia PM Gillard yesterday waxed lyrical about the Anzac ‘family’, making the point that recent acts of mutual support in times of need can only have come from two countries connected as if a family. How hypocritical of them both to extol the virtues of their ‘family’ while supporting the destruction of their nations’ real families through existing feminist laws. Those laws include huge prison sentences and unjust legal process for the particular transgressions that men are seen as more likely to commit, kidnapping children from those parents who don’t adhere to feminist dictates including the absolutist (but duplicitous and irrational) religion of ‘non-violence’, and facilitation through financial incentrive of family trashing by mothers.

    And no doubt both Key and Gillard will avoid facing up to the truth by shallow male-blaming similar to that indulged in by David Cameron.

  4. No man should vote in the election! Won’t happen I know, but imagine the message that would send!
