Breaking news from the 8BitDad news wire: the UK dad group “New Fathers 4 Justice” are arranging a rally in front of British Secretary of State for Justice Kenneth Clarke’s house. The rally is set for Saturday, January 28 – which is in 24 hours or less, depending on which side of the pond you’re on.

New Fathers 4 Justice are known for rallying in favor of father’s rights – and usually, their protests consist of wearing superhero costumes and climbing to the roof of someone’s office. This time around, costumes are encouraged, and protestors are to bring purple flags, whistles, drums and whatever “loudhailers” are. Us yanks assume it’s a cross between a bullhorn and an inhaler.

Matthew Starmore Speaks, 8BitDad Listens

The following was left as a comment on our article “‘New Fathers 4 Justice’ Member Possibly Not Doing Great Things for Fathers or Justice“. It is from the subject of the story, Matthew Starmore. He felt that he wasn’t given a fair shake here, or in many media outlets. As Editor-in-Chief of 8BitDad, I will defend our site by saying that in short blurb stories such as the one linked above, we only offer quick summaries and links to outside news. We put no guarantees on other peoples’ information, and when posting links, they are offered as-is.

So, just as we offered the BBC’s article “at face value”, so too shall we offer Matthew Starmore’s response, after the jump. Please excuse our uncharacteristic lack of humorous pictures, as they don’t fit the story’s tone.
