great dad and an awsome book
on 18 September 2007
Mr Chick took on and exposed the secret family law system for the farce that it is. How he kept his head, control and self discipline throughout the nightmare of a time when him and his daughter were being abused / denied the contact they should have been having throughout his 2 years of protesting beggars belief. This dad, acting alone did more to inform the public of the family courts failings than anyone person before or since. Over 200ft in the air for over 6 days during his Tower bridge protest was some feat. This protest of his was the first time the children's and fathers rights issue went global and was the first which made anyone aware of F4J as Mr Chick used one of their banners because they were fighting for the same cause. There were three other 'crane'protests of varying amount of days endurance prior to this one, and as for going on the London eye as a paying spectator - that is scary enough, but to climb around the whole thing (over 450ft high) and stay there for so long - all again to raise public awareness of the family law scandal - that was AWSOME too. A brilliant book by a great man, who I know for a fact is now seeing his daughter on a regular basis (as should have always been happening). No contact for 21 months when there is a weekly contact "order" in place but the court who made it don't bother to enforce it - Now that is scandalous.
A must read for any dad / or any man thinking of becoming a dad.
