Campaigners Stage Protest On Corbyn’s Roof
Bobby Smith and Martin Matthews climbed onto the roof this morning as part of their effort to draw attention to their campaign for fathers to be given greater rights to see their children.
Mr Smith shared videos on social media showing police closing off the street in north London and the pair talking to “negotiators in Corbyn’s house” through a skylight.
He then called radio station LBC and said the pair were prepared to stay on the roof until they achieved a breakthrough or the Labour leader came to speak to them.
Mr Smith said: “We’ve got food and water and all that. We’ll stay here as long as we have to. We’re willing to do anything for our children.”
They appeared to be referring to a Commons Justice Committee report into the operation of family courts, which said the Australian system – which favours shared parenting when parents split – had not contributed to children’s well-being.
The panel, which included Corbyn, said: “We believe therefore that the best interests of the child should remain the sole test applied by the courts to any decision on the welfare of children in the family justice system.”

5 YEARS HARRASSMENT BY THESE CRUEL SERVICES?? THATS OUT OF ORDER!!!
The real reason the government wants fathers out of the way – and mothers – is to get their hands on the children.
