More About the Author
Mike Buchanan (1957- ) is a British writer, publisher, and men's human rights advocate, formerly a business consultant before retiring in 2010. In February 2013 his political party was officially registered by the Electoral Commission - 'Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them)' http://j4mb.org.uk. The party plans to contest 30 marginal seats in the May 2015 general election.
The party will have among its objectives the end of discriminatory policies against men, and an end to other manifestations of gender feminism which attacks many of the pillars of civilised societies including the family, education, the political system, the legal system, the media, business... and more. Gender feminism is a hate-driven female supremacist ideology which has assaulted the interests of women and children, as well as those of men, for 30+ years.
In 2008 Mike founded LPS publishing http://lpspublishing.co.uk, in 2012 Anti-Feminism League http://fightingfeminism.wordpress.com and Campaign for Merit in Business http://c4mb.wordpress.com. He worked for the Conservative party over 2006-8 but resigned his party membership in late 2009 in protest at Conservative party leader David Cameron's adoption of women-only prospective parliamentary candidate shortlists for some constituencies for the forthcoming general election. To enable this, Cameron employed legislation introduced in March 2008 by the gender feminist Labour MP Harriet Harman.
The legislation permitted political parties to use women-only prospective parliamentary candidate shortlists for the ensuing five general elections i.e. FOR 25 YEARS. The proposed legislation hadn't been mentioned in the Labour Party's 2005 general election manifesto, although the same manifesto DID include this gem: 'The new European Union Constitutional Treaty is a good treaty for Britain and the new Europe. We will put it to the British people in a referendum.' Ha.
Mike is currently working with Bedford-based celebrity Paul Carrington on the latter's autobiography which has the provisional title, 'Citizen Carrington: The Sage of Bedford, Paul Carrington aged 61 3/4'. Paul was the star of the author's international bestseller, 'Two Men in a Car (a businessman, a chauffeur, and their holidays in France)' as well as featuring (as Thunderin' Paul Carrington) in 'Guitar Gods in Beds. (Bedfordshire: a heavenly county)'.
Mike has written nine books since 2008:
'Feminism: The Ugly Truth' was published in a Kindle edition on 13 February 2012, the paperback edition may be published on 1 April 2013. Then again, it may not be. A critique of radical feminism, a movement of angry misandric (man-hating) women which assaults men, women, children, marriage, the family, the legal system, academia, the media, democracy and business... and so much more. It leads to the early deaths of many men and women. Chapter titles include, 'Are you a misogynist if you only hate feminists?', 'How does feminism kill many men and women?', 'Are some feminists (e.g. Tracey Emin) a pain in the arts?', 'Why must we stop funding Women's Studies and Gender Studies courses?', and 'Are feminists delusional? Is the pope a Catholic? Do bears crap in woods?' The Kindle edition will contain a sample chapter from 'Two Men in a Car' titled, 'Would you like to have sex with my wife?' along with that book's plate section (16 photographs). The paperback edition will have the sample chapter but not the plate section.
'The Glass Ceiling Delusion: the REAL reasons more women don't reach senior positions'. After spending over 30 years working in the private sector (1978-2010), most of them working at a senior level in major companies, Mike Buchanan recognised that the 'glass ceiling' explanation for the small number of women in senior executive positions in general, and in the boardroom in particular, was a groundless conspiracy theory advanced by feminists to further their personal agendas. This book explains the real reasons for the longstanding gender imbalances, and why gender balance initiatives are a threat to meritocracy and therefore capitalism itself.
'David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman?' This book considers the world of men and women in the workplace, and chronicles the enactment by the new Conservative prime minister (David Cameron) of legislation that was the brainchild of a militant feminist Labour MP, Harriet Harman. The Equality Act 2010 substitutes the principle of 'equality of opportunity' with 'equality of outcome' in the public sector, for the first time in British law. It is feared that the legislation may be extended to the private sector in the fullness of time.
'The Joy of Self-Publishing' A comprehensive guide to self-publishing in the modern era, with an emphasis on the practical issues involved in producing books and ebooks, and how to make the best of the Print-on-Demand ('POD') business model.
'Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for Right-Minded Americans' Quotations delivering insight, inspiration and amusement to Americans who are right-of-centre politically, like the editor. Quotations from the expected sources (Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, P.J. O'Rourke, Sarah Palin...) and from the less expected (Elvis Presley, Homer Simpson, Charlton Heston, Rita Rudner...)
'The Marriage Delusion: the fraud of the rings?' Also available in a paperback version with the title 'The Fraud of the Rings'. A critique of marriage which argues that most adults in the developed world in the modern era are unsuited to the institution. The book also makes realistic recommendations to reduce the number of unhappy marriages and thereby bring down the number of divorces. Now wouldn't that be a good thing?
'Two Men in a Car (A Businessman, a Chauffeur, and Their Holidays in France)' The politically-incorrect tale of two holidays in France enjoyed by Mike Buchanan and his chauffeur, Paul Carrington. The book contains 16 colour photographs taken during the holidays.
'Guitar Gods in Beds. (Bedfordshire: A Heavenly County)' The colourful life stories of eight amateur / semi-pro / professional guitarists living and performing in Mike Buchanan's adopted town, the throbbing metropolis of Bedford, England. One is Thunderin' Paul Carrington,the author's chauffeur in 'Two Men in a Car'. The book contains 16 colour photographs of the guitarists, half taken recently, half when they were much younger.
'Profitable Buying Strategies' (published by Kogan Page) Drawing on the author's 25+ years' experience of procurement at a senior level in major organisations, this is a guide to improving organisational profitability through reducing the cost of bought-in goods and services.
