HONITON: Local woman attempts to ‘arrest’ Prime Minister

Tuesday, 24 June 2014


A Honiton woman has been apprehended by police after attempting to ‘arrest’ Prime Minister David Cameron for his “crimes against children”. The 42-year-old woman, a campaigner for New Fathers 4 Justice, confronted Mr Cameron at an agricultural show in Burford on Saturday (June 21st), and was removed by security officers after trying to perform a citizen’s arrest. Her protests were based on the family court system, which the campaign group claims is weighted against fathers. Following the incident, the woman, along with another activist, slept in a tent outside the Prime Minister’s Oxfordshire home. And Mr Cameron eventually agreed to speak to the woman on Saturday morning, dressed in his bedclothes. The woman said they had a ten-minute “chat”, but were “surrounded by machine guns”. A spokesperson for New Fathers 4 Justice, said: “We would like nothing more than to simply be with our families, and happy in the knowledge our children would grow up with equal rights. “But until anything is done, this is the only way anyone takes any notice of our message. “New Fathers 4 Justice wants nothing less than a legal presumption of 50/50 contact for a child with their parents if they split up, and the abolition of the deeply controversial, undemocratic secret court system that still exists within the ‘family’ division despite 40 years of inequality and protest.”
