Friends - this will be the last update for the next week or so as I need to go away and get some sleep.
Anyhow, here a few articles not covered that I hope are of interest.
Merry Christmas one and all and if you are not in the situation yourself spare a thought for those fathers who will not be seeing their children over Christmas because of recalcitrant mothers.
The Guardian - Forced marriage is inhumane (Sayeeda Warsi): Welcome recognition that 14% of victims of forced marriage are men.
Daily Telegraph - Parents who abduct children should face tougher sentences (Tom Whitehead): As long as that counts for the legions of women who abduct their children and relocate abroad to deny the father a chance of contact.
Wales online - Erin Pizzey came out to support Cllr McEvoy and recived some letters in return. Though one of them by Cardiff councillor Iona Gordon said that Erin Pizzey had been brought into dispreute by Women's Aid - I think Cllr Gordon has it the wrong way round.
Daily Mail - The female only Facebook (Lauren Paxman): More sexist nasty belittling man bashing - women who use this site are men-haters in the same way as the women who bought "Men are stupid, throw rocks at them" The comments are well worth a read and who will be the first to sue one of the people on the site for defamation. To be honest the site is illegal.
The Guardian - Biased Book Choice (Jan Pahl): a look into the mind of the paranoid radical feminist.
The Guardian - Why is British public life dominated by men (Kira Cochrane): Not one shred of evidence of sexism but plenty of pleas for special treatment and pleading. It really is quite a dangerous piece of McCarthyite 'reds under the bed' research because there is no evidence of sexism but Kira sees sexists and sexism everywhere (she should have been in the Sixth Sense).
Daily Mail - Former racehorse owner jailed for contacting her daughter (Paul Sims): This awful case of how a woman tried to brainwash her daughter into thinking her father was a paedophile should be shown to every anti-male radical feminist in the country.
