Fathers start political party.

AN OFFSHOOT of controversial campaign group Fathers 4 Justice is to launch itself as a political party in Liverpool this week.

Former Liverpool F4J branch member Peter Molloy, from Childwall, is among the men setting up the Equal Parenting Alliance, aimed at trying to change family law to recognise fathers' rights.

It comes months after the national Fathers 4 Justice group disbanded after police revealed they were investigating a "plot" by one group of members to kidnap Tony Blair's youngest son, Leo.

The new EPA national political party will launch with a press conference outside Liverpool's Queen Elizabeth II Law Courts in Derby Square on Friday.

The party's main aim will be to enshrine in legislation a parent's right to a legal presumption to reasonable direct contact with their child in the event of a relationship breaking down.
