Batman in Palace

A police officer, left, watches a protester dressed as Batman, right, who stands on a ledge at London's Buckingham Palace, Monday, Sept. 13, 2004, near the balcony where the royal family appears on ceremonial occasions. The protester was identified as Jason Hatch, 33, a member of the Fathers 4 Justice group which is campaigning for greater custody rights for divorced or separated fathers. (NB. A BLOODY GOOD thing to get behind, if you ask me!!! "Fighting for your right to see your kids!") No member of the royal family was at the palace Monday. Britain's Queen Elizabeth II was at her Balmoral residence in Scotland. Seen at rear is a Buckingham Palace official. (AP Photo/PA)

Hey Mal.
I am 100% behind the purpose of this group. My husband has had nothing but trouble with trying to see his boys since his divorce. While I am a woman and love being a woman, I have to admit that men get the bad end of the stick when it comes to issues like this.
Good on them, it will take action like this for society and the governments to realise that something needs to be done and soon.
BTW, thank you for your comment, no need to be embarrassed about anything. :))
