Matt O'Connor

Matt O'Connor (born 1967 in Manchester) is the founder of the fathers' rights group Fathers 4 Justice in the UK. Denied access to his children by the Family Courts, O'Connor created Fathers 4 Justice to demand reform of the family courts and government policy on parental access.

In a GQ magazine feature on O'Connor in June 2006, Will Self said of him, "He is fiercely intelligent, charmingly foul-mouthed and has a fantastic turn of phrase ... few could equal O'Connor when it comes to taking a conversational thread, yanking, unravelling and generally running with it.”[1]
