Fathers’ rights protester hits out at getting a parking fine

Chris Tompson outside David Cameron’s constituency offices in Witney High Street

Chris Tompson outside David Cameron’s constituency offices in Witney High Street

First published in News

A MAN campaigning for fathers’ rights has been fined £50 for illegally parking his car outside Prime Minister David Cameron’s constituency office in Witney’s High Street.

Chris Tompson, 38, has had his car parked for more than three days, when the parking space only permits people to stay for 30 minutes at a time.

He has since covered up his tax disc and registration plates to prevent traffic wardens issuing any more fines, and has covered his wheels to stop the car from being clamped.

Mr Tompson, from Manchester, said: “This is a public road, by common law I can park here. They are trying to breach my human right to protest. It’s just bullying tactics.”

Along with fellow protester Bobby Smith, Mr Tompson has been on hunger strike since Friday, June 6, in a protest over secret courts and demanding more rights for fathers and grandparents to see their children.

Mr Tompson has not seen his children, eight-year-old Amber-Louise and George-Christopher, six, since last June.

He said: “Family courts can just rip families apart with no evidence or reason. I wasn’t allowed any evidence or testimonials in my favour – I wasn’t even allowed in the room when the judge decided I couldn’t see my children.”

Although I wholeheartedly agree that Fathers should have greater rights, this group aren't doing themselves any favours, they're not really proving themselves to be good fathers.

With rights come responsibilities.

Has anyone alerted the police that there is an abandoned car with no licence plates or tax disc blocking a parking space in the heart of Witney?

Tax disc and number plates covered up, not removed. Vehicle is not abandoned, and you may rest assured due to the political nature of this, the police are very aware.

This guy is fairly close to my business, I'm not going to lie, at first I thought of him as a pest. But I have taken a few minutes to understand his situation, as have a lot of people in the area. Number plates, parking spaces etc don't really mean a lot - he just wants to see his own kids. If anyone can 'reframe' themselves in this situation... how far would you go, what would you do?
(some might then say 'I wouldn't be in that situation in the first place', and one would hope they never were. But suppose for a moment you were in this situation and it was both unjust and legally beyond your control - what would you do to be able to see your own children? who knows!)

Father absence

In view of the tens of thousands of children who and have been damaged for life by Government policies, fatherless families and current social trends, has anyone in government initiated any action to:

a) find out why so many parents are failing to maintain a relationship;
b) understand why men are ˜running away™ from their obligations to bring up their children;
c) create programs that encourage and support fathers into having a healthy and productive relationship with their children even when some mothers oppose such a thing?

Will the Government finally admit that their punitive attitude towards men and their failure to support marriage has harmed children and do something about it or do we have to continue to put up with substantial resources being squandered on alternative style relationships?

Is anyone in the Government capable of making any links between decline of marriage, divorce, youth delinquency, debt, bursting prison population, depression and unhappiness, obesity, low self esteem, single parent households, domestic violence etc, etc.?

These problems beg the currently popular remark: Why does no one point out the elephant in the room? In other words you have to invest in men in the community and the family if you want to start to resolve these problems. Its not rocket science, but if you provide positive male role models and stop driving men away from their responsibilities to their families and their communities, you might find that most women would be only too delighted to support this. Lets face it, putting men in prison is extremely expensive and is often counterproductive. Vilifying men by regarding them as perverts and violent is not only alienating perpetrators, it is also adversely affecting non-perpetrators and those who want to reform themselves.

For some thirty years now a quiet revolution has been waged throughout the Western world. Most people are now familiar with the social consequences of the divorce explosion: the growth of single-parent homes and massive increase in fatherless children. The Pandora's box of social problems this has released has also reached general awareness. Virtually every major personal and social pathology can be traced to fatherlessness more than to any other single factor: violent crime, substance abuse, unwed pregnancy, truancy, suicide, and more. Fatherlessness far surpasses both poverty and race as a predictor of social deviance.

This is a national disgrace. Anyone who wanted to could see the deleterious effects of fatherlessness in the streets almost every day of the week. A few minutes’ thought would tell anyone that as a simple matter of economics, keeping fathers and children connected makes sense. How much money do we spend every year trying to address social problems – crime, drug and alcohol abuse, boy’s educational difficulties, teen pregnancy etc. – that fathers themselves could hugely ameliorate? The reasons to keep fathers in children’s lives are many and there is no real counterargument.

What other recourse do the protesters have? I know I would be devastated if I couldn't see my children. But I'd rather they didn't have to occupy a parking space to get a hearing.

I am a former police officer. I reported suspected abuse of my daughter. social services falsified police investigations, altered medical reports and concealed child abuse. Social Services stripped me of my career. I have followed the law to the T and reported what i was trained to spot. Social Services made it quite clear that men should not have residency and that it is WRONG to report abuse. The family courts had no concerns of perjury and corruption and said i was "holi than thou" for reporting social services to the police which they (ss) said reporting them (ss) was a "risk to a child" . Protesting is the only way to expose this corruption. I was also considered a massive risk to my child for speaking to NSPCC.

I have continued to follow the law. I'm now supervised and contact workers have come forward as they were sacked for reporting concerns. Supervision was stopped when my daughter disclosed she wanted to speak out to someone that would listen to her and believe her (she was previously intimidated not to speak out by social services). My daughter speaking out proves my case. We have strong evidence social services have concealed abuse.

I have traced one of the social workers working here illegally.

I agree social services are the spawn of the devil, and I'm pleased things appear to be going in the right direction for your relationship with your daughter, unfortunately I doubt you'll ever get an apology for the pain and hardship you've suffered.
You stuck to the letter of the law all the way through, and that's the way to do things, getting in bother to highlight a cause, doesn't really benefit those that have been wronged in the first place, it just serves to make the fight even more difficult.
Best of luck for the future, kids are the most important things in the world.

Thing is you read in newspaper this happened or that happened social services failed a child or father denied rights. you say there MUST be something i.e the father was violent / criminal past.

The point make is that there was no DV, there was no criminal past, I was squeaky clean (being a copper) and I simply reported concerns (i wont say against whom and what in here).

You never know when these ppl strike you - it does not matter what job you do how clean you are - if social services dont like men and choose to falsify concerns against men then you don't stand a chance in the family courts. Family courts in my case ignored police evidence SS lied, historic concerns (against the alleged abuser) concealing the mothers historic past and made me look like a complete ****. I was highly critisised for NOT drinking, smoking or taking drugs. I was critisisied for coming from a decent background and critisied for also owning a successful business.

Dear Baroness Tyler of Enfield,

Cafcass Framework Documentation

This shows how years can be spent compiling corpo-paperwork without an initiating thought.

I see no acknowledgment here of either:

(i) the single decision at the heart of every contact dispute, i.e., how a child's time should be apportioned between his/her parents

(ii) the primary risk faced by children caught up in these disputes, i.e., that they may lose one of their parents

There is no mention of the primary purpose of the Act in private law disputes.

The consequence is an agency which that engages in doing, without knowing, and, without knowing what to do. This agency started as a dangerous blank in 2001, with no hinterland of meaningless paperwork. After 12 years the agency has developed into a dangerous blank, with a hinterland of meaningless paperwork. It claims (para 1.5) to be a "values-led" organisation. There is nothing to suggest cafcass knows either what those values are, or what those values are about.

Yours Sincerely

David Mortimer

The main question here is, although a protest is being made is Cameron interested ?

Bear in mind the protests at his house in Dean, really not gathering the exposure the group wanted.

The answer is NO, Cameron is not interested, or he would have got more involved by now. Simple thing is he has bigger fish to fry, the EC, the Economy, disputes within his own party between Gove and May. So is he really interested in a minority group who will have no input to the forth coming election next year, especially with the summer recess due any time soon, NO. Chaps you are wasting your time. Try some protests on Christmas day when Double Dip will be all smugged up at Chequers or at Dean, when you should be with your kids, then you may get some attention and exposure, and probably a guaranteed dinner in the nick, maybe.

Getting a criminal record for a motoring offense is hardly crime of the century, what ever way you choose to dress it up. I wouldn't think it would be in the public interest for DPP or DVLA to pursue that under the circumstances, and the fact that the disc is valid means the duty is paid, so a technicality at best for not displaying is hardly the priority. The fact that the man, what ever people may think of him, is prepared to stand up for what he believes in, especially in the world of so many so politically correct people who keep their heads in dark intestinal places, is to be commended. Whether he is right or wrong, he is prepared to fight for what he believes in, shame a few others don't join in to support causes which are being lost to the politically correct agenda, who have never fought for freedom and rights of the individual to have a voice and a view.
We would not have won WW2 if we had been politically correct, and those who are so embalmed in PC need to know and appreciate that.
