Fathers 4 Justice Protestors Demonstrate on Jeremy Corbyn’s Roof

Two protestors from the New Fathers 4 Justice group have reached the roof of Jeremy Corbyn’s house to protest about not being able to see their children. The protestors have accused Mr Corbyn of failing to hold the Government to account. Whereas, police have cordoned off the road in Islington as negotiators took steps to make the duo come down.

Addressing media outlets, one of the protestors Bobby Smith alleged that “for a while we’ve been thinking that Jeremy Corbyn needs to be held to account about his role in blocking shared parenting in 2011.” The 34-year-old added that “if you’ve seen the news he seems to be flying around the country talking to the same 2,000 people when he should be fighting issues. It’s simple because father’s rights is the same issue it’s always been, when separation happens both parents should get equal rights to see their children.” Mr Smith claimed that “there’s people on the ground taking pictures and sticking their thumbs up at us. It’s a shame the police are having to do this again and are making such a big deal about this.” He stressed that “we’re staying up here until we’ve got our message across, we’re not going to be intimidated by them and hopefully Jeremy Corbyn will get the message.”

Whereas on the other hand, Met Police spokesman has revealed that “police are currently in attendance at a protest in Islington,” after “we were called at 10.30 this morning to reports of two men protesting on the roof of a residential address. Officers are in attendance and the road is currently closed to traffic.”
