What Happens when the Custodial Parent gets a Custodial sentence?

Thu 22nd September 2016:

I have shared care with my ex of two of my kids aged 9 and near 11. Their mother has committed an offence that is shortly due to see her incarcerated for anywhere up to 4 years or possibly more. In reality she will only serve 1/3 of that so in all likelihood, will be […]

Successful Complaint to Press Council

A representative of the Ministry of Men’s Affairs has achieved a small success in a recent complaint to the NZ Herald about this article (that the Herald has now amended). Although the Herald probably won’t concede the important matters regarding misrepresentation of Protection Orders, failing to identify its real victims in most cases (i.e. the […]

Surprise Surprise, The Chief’s Stripper Lied

Sat 17th September 2016:

Told you so. Let’s see how much prominence our misandrist media gives to this information. Many people appointed themselves judge and jury regarding this lying stripper’s allegations, making the same mistake that our Courts so often make in taking a sexist position favouring women’s tales.

Female Hypocrisy Concerning Sentencing of a Male

Lynch mob calls for harsher punishment of Nikolas Delegat for repeatedly punching a police officer have claimed that his wealth, status, ability to afford a good lawyer and his skin colour all led to a light sentence.

Chiefs’ Stripper Scandal

Sat 10th September 2016:

The Chiefs’ rugby team stripper scandal has been in the news for weeks now. The only real scandal is how feminist forces have behaved and how media have milked it in such an unbalanced, misandrist fashion. Stripper ‘Scarlette’ made allegations about the behaviour of Chiefs players who hired her to ‘perform’ at their end-of-season celebrations. […]

Fathers Day Ambushed

Thu 8th September 2016:

Thanks to Father & Child and other groups who have generously supported the spirit of Fathers Day this year. Unfortunately, misandrist and femicentric forces have used the commemoration as another opportunity to bash men. A previous post – thanks Jerry – drew our attention to a couple of articles. One was about the ’10 worst […]

Wed 7th September 2016:

OK, so it seems under the new legislation that us paying parents (love the term “paying”) can get our arrears remitted if we apply and if we have been paying our liability more often than not. So, I contacted IRD CS about this on the 1st of April and was informed that I should call […]
