By Philip Davies MP: If you were to believe the word of the few feminist extremists in the country (and a survey suggests only 1 in 7 women self-identifies as a feminist) women have very different political priorities to men. They believe more women in Parliament would ensure different issues were prioritised. However, nothing could be further from the truth. What is striking is that the issues that men and women are concerned about are remarkably similar. Indeed I recently asked the House of Commons Library to break down the top five issues of concern for men and women. They did so using opinion poll results from Ipsos Mori which were published over the last year. The top five issues for female voters in order are: 1) NHS 2) Immigration 3) Education 4) Economy 5) Housing The top five issues for male voters in order are: 1) NHS 2) Immigration 3) Economy 4) Housing 5) Unemployment This is not a new phenomenon. I also asked the same question for 2011. The results back then for female voters were 1) Economy 2) NHS 3) Unemployment 4) Immigration 5) Crime. For men in 2011 it was 1) Economy 2) Unemployment 3) Immigration 4) Defence 5) NHS.
By Gary Quell: It’s an age old question in the argument of child custody and separation, and indeed it’s one that we at the Men & Boy’s Initiative get asked quite often by the people we advise. 19/03/17 this complicated issue reared its head once again, this time on the ill-equipped debating forum that is Twitter. Since this discussion we’ve had the pleasure of being mentioned directly (or rather one of our founding members, Peter Morris, has) on a blog written by Sarah Phillimore – Family Law Barrister of some 20 years experience. For your viewing pleasure you can enjoy the blog in full at the below link: http://childprotectionresource.online/are-the-family-courts-biased-against-men/ It’s an interesting piece and despite it originating from a disagreement between ourselves and the author, we’re always interested to read the views of seasoned professionals in the Family Law arena.
Cassie Jaye: On March 7, 2017, The Red Pill movie was released on DVD, BluRay and VOD platforms worldwide. - The very next day, on March 8, the CBC did a segment on why "The Red Pill" movie's Calgary screening was cancelled.

GA: In the following piece Devon Nola is offering an interesting perspective on Palestinian solidarity activism. The WRME (Washington Report on Middle East Affairs) are doing a remarkable job exposing Israeli crimes and Jewish Lobby affairs (see video), yet, what we need now is a metaphysical shift.
By Devon Nola: This weekend, the annual AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) Convention takes place where 15,000 of this diabolical Jewish lobby’s best and brightest meet to mix and mingle, celebrate the successes of the past year and more importantly, strategize for the coming year how best to maintain Israel’s strength. The claim is that it’s in America’s best interest, as well, but the truth is American citizens get zero from this one-sided relationship. Sure, a few American companies like Boeing and Lockheed Martin make boatloads of cash through the sales of Apache helicopters and weapons to Israel, but for American tax payers, the return on investment is nothing more than our share of the guilt of mass slaughter of Palestinians, Syrians, Lebanese, and whomever challenges Israel’s dominance in the region.
