The move by the Conservatives is very good news even from across the pond in Canada. It's gratifying to see the O'Connors back in the advocacy campaign for families and children's rights to have both parents in their lives.
The only question remains why did they have Facebook sites shut down as noted in the comments below and what are the motives behind this late move. If you read the Facebook page O'Connor has running on F4J you would think he was God's gift to both marketing and children.MJM
Tory backing for family law change12:33pm Saturday 10th April 2010
THE reformed Hampshire-based Fathers 4 Justice campaign group has won Conservative backing for a change to family law.
The Tories have agreed a ten-point action plan which includes legal backing for shared child contact between separated parents.
They are promising to include the family law reforms in their general election manifesto next week.
Nadine O’Connor, wife of Fathers 4 Justice founder Matt O’Connor, has taken over the running of the controversial organisation which became known for its high profile stunts which saw costume-wearing dads scale Buckingham Palace, disrupt Parliament and take over a live National Lottery broadcast.
Nadine, who lives in Romsey, said: “This is the game-changing announcement we have been working towards.
“We look forward to working with the Conservative Party on ensuring this commitment becomes a reality for the thousands of children and families whose lives are blighted by the family courts.”
Romsey and Southampton North Conservative candidate Caroline Nokes is backing the move.
She said: “Families really are the bedrock of our community. I welcome the announcement and look forward to the ten points being implemented after the election.”
