Click on origional blog title above to see when Davey last raised this issue.
At a time that our new coalition Government have empowered the Ministry of Justice to make a substantive review of the Family Laws in the UK at the moment and in spite of Lord Justice Sir Nicholas Wall's misplaced comments;

We still have the people's national broadcaster hiding from and manipulating broadcasts away from this subject as it does not fit their liberal minded over zealous PC brigade format. This I believe, is something exacerbated by the Ross/ Brand controversy which if it had been on any other non- BC medium would have gone unnoticed! couple this to the blatant episode of Question Time ( yes the show they thought pushed the boundaries when they invite Nick Griffin from the BNP on) which revealed our one time deputy Prime Minister Harriet Harman instruct live on air David Dimbleby to stop Ian Duncan- Smith from raising the issue of broken homes and their effect on society and all in the wake of Micheal Jackson's sudden death.
I did like Peter Hitchen's comment later when asked about voting for the Lib-Dem's and his reply was "what's the point?" From then on I refereed to them as the "What's the point Party"
Even James Whale who's son went through the family law hell the Lord Justice's remain blinkered on, at the same time James was diagnosed with Cancer ( a period of time he dedicated a chapter of his book too) and shortly after telly Davey to walk away from this hell on a late night call in to Talk Sport Radio ( wonder what happened to Ash?) was unceremoniously sacked for suggesting Boris would be a better Mayor then Ken (a fact that remains the case to this day) Ironically the two were to find themselves brought together as colleagues at LBC radio and are now evidently the best of friends, yet some of us question the integrity of a man who could use his high profile radio persona to forward his case to return to office of Mayor of London in 2012; http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sun_talk/3043137/Today-on-Martel-Maxwell-In-The-Afternoon.html#mySunComments
Davey had to do some rapid research as to just who Gavin Hansen was.Nonetheless I did tune in to this programme presented by one Tony Liversy, someone else new to me, Mike had his say in his usual broad Geordie and having given a little thought, and in view that I had just passed 36 months of Parental Alienation of my two son's on the 19th Sept. I thought I would raise the case for Dads who have their kids taken and raised by a stranger and denied the opportunity of contact. Well after holding on the phone for 30 Min's, at the BBC's expense thankfully, and listening to what seemed an absolute shambles of a programme with people calling in with instant mind numbing messages, then the news, weather& sports only to have little more then 30 seconds to make my case and then to be hung up on. I later learned that Mike had been ejected out of the studio simply for saying something about solicitors! A far cry from the slick professionalism & courtesy we were offered at Sun-Talk and a somewhat more intelligent line of questioning from Martell Maxwell. http://www.realfathersforjustice.org/news/index.php?itemid=419
By some consolation I was notified of yet another radio station who were to debate Social Services, I tried this once at BBC Radio London and Eddie Nestor went into one and again hung up before I could correct him yet as anyone who knows me through my blogs I will show reasoned and balanced views right up till the biased is too acute. ( I am sure the BBC never forgave be for spamming the Woman's Hour message board out of existence on Family Law issues and the same happened at the Daily Mail http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1314131/The-cruelty-women-use-children-weapons-divorce.html when I suggested there should be a more in depth review of the Baby Peter Connolly case, something I still feel has not been fully researched to date for the benefit of Social Services and their care of children nationally. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1315115/Separating-parents-forced-attend-custody-classes-realise-damage-children.html I think they may be getting the message of late!
Anyway I was glad to be introduced to Sunny Radio and the forthright approach taken by this programme on Social Services shortfalls which are a National Disgrace!
