Why I’m refusing to work for The Guardian


Hi Emma,

After much consideration I regret to inform you that because of The Guardian’s continuing bigoted and discriminatory reporting of the issues surrounding fathers and fatherlessness, I can no longer participate as a tutor at the Guardian Masterclass this weekend.

Whilst I was delighted to have been invited as a speaker for The Icecreamists, as the founder of Fathers4Justice I cannot be seen to endorse or be paid by an organisation whose dangerous rhetoric supports mass fatherlessness and discrimination against fathers on the basis of their gender.

I apologise for any inconvenience this will cause and hope you understand my position.
