Calls for Family Court Inquiry

Sun 22nd October 2017:

Our colleague Craig Jackson has joined calls from the feminist ‘Backbone Collective’ for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Family Court. However, Craig’s concerns differ considerably from the feminists who believe the Family Court should believe everything women claim and do exactly what women prefer without question.

Girls’ Rock Camp

Sat 21st October 2017:

A rock music training day for teenagers of all genders except heterosexual males. Is this ok? Isn’t gender discrimination unlawful? Radio NZ (which should change its name to Feminist Radio) states the following:

Manslaughter by Susan Mouat

Sun 15th October 2017:

Susan Mouat caused the death of her husband by pushing him and thereby causing him to fall and fatally hit his head. She then lied about the event for years to avoid responsibility. Our previous comment in September was as follows:

The Quantum Court That Amazes Observers

Sat 7th October 2017:

The father of a daughter whose mother illegally brought her to live in NZ has had The NZ Family Court deny his application to have the child returned to him in his home country. This is a Court that defies logic and the injustice dished out to the father is horrific. No one should be […]

Rachel Smalley’s Condescending Comments

Fri 6th October 2017:

NZ Herald femaleist (aren’t they all femaleists at the Herald?) Rachel Smalley today bemoaned the lack of females on the teams involved in negotiations to form a new government.

Voting Age

Mon 2nd October 2017:

If you are a student of recent history you would know, it is not that long ago that the voting age was set at 21 years of age. More recently it was reduced to 18 years of age. The three year difference brings in another quarter-of-a-million, or there abouts, young minds into the political void.

Suicide and Reason

Tue 26th September 2017:

Zdenek (Sid) Hanzlik’s suicide is a very sad event and may have been triggered by several issues but without doubt the main protagonist was the Family Court and Family Law. The slide into the abyss of despair through a life without perceived meaning for many fathers is the needless separation and complications, in regards to […]

The No Vote Option

Wed 20th September 2017:

As indicated in recent news articles, less people are interested in voting. I find that understandable, given the behaviour of politicians and political parties.

New Zealand Ghettos aka Social Housing

Tue 19th September 2017:

A huge amount of men in New Zealand are in need of community support, i.e., social housing, foodbanks, etc, etc, and I think that many men become aware, i.e., swallow the red pill, when they reach out for community support and find it non-existent or lacking.

Misandry Rules Labour

Mon 18th September 2017:

With Helen Clark’s feminist agenda still driving misandrist anti-male policy in the Labour Party it comes as no surprise a new childless feminist, Jacinda Adern, has won control, claim the Ministry of Men’s Affairs (MoMA). MoMA is a community group because successive governments have neglected the voice and welfare of men and boys. They believe […]

Tool to Help in Your Voting

Sun 17th September 2017:

We found this tool in which you choose your views and preferences about matters and these are compared with the policies to tell you which party’s policies are most in line with your views. Seems reasonably based and quite fun:

White Men Alleged to Support Forced Under-aged Prostitution

Sat 16th September 2017:

This prominent article in the NZ Herald told us that “social researcher” Natalie Thorburn “released disturbing findings” such as that “Girls just 12 years old were often groomed by boyfriends who eventually forced them into a situation where they had no option but to sell their bodies”. Ms Thorburn also claimed that “A 9-year-old girl […]

Labour’s policy remains guilty unless you can prove you are innocent

Thu 14th September 2017:

Guilty until proven innocent With 20 years jail in the balance, when will National publicly as Labour to clarify this policy.

Tones of Fathers Day

Wed 13th September 2017:

Recollections of Father’s Day from older men might be a curiosity to younger readers. For me, being the youngest in the Family, I recall the annual presentation of a white porcelain tea cup with pictures of old cars – we’re talking Model T Fords and Chrysler convertibles, just to be clear, not old bombs. The […]

Openess is the Cure

Discussions in similar jurisdictions are often worth watching. I noticed this article on the Guardian about Family Law.

Isn’t that a blow to the Banks

Fri 1st September 2017:

John Banks, known to some of us as a passionate supporter of Fathers, refused a DNA test. If you were a father, would you not want to know? Help me out here, is the estate, or pride, or something, more important than your own offspring. I’m having a bit of trouble with this one, especially […]

A men’s group has labelled a new policy announced this week by Corrections Minister Louise Upston as “corrupt”.
