Two fathers' rights campaigners who scaled Westminster Abbey in an Easter protest have been persuaded to climb down by Ann Widdecombe MP.
Concerned that Good Friday services would have to be held outside, she urged the members of Real Fathers for Justice to end their 30-hour protest.

As a Conservative MP, Ann Widdicombe would have an instinctive eye for a bit of useful publicity, so we should regard her actions with some scepticism.

Having said that, her track record is pretty good on men's issues so she could be a useful ally. Perhaps that's why RF4J listened. I wonder if they phoned headquarters first?
