Matt O'Connor (born 1967, Manchester, England, UK) 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 his GQ magazine feature on O'Connor in June 2006, Will Self said of O'Connor: "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]

O'Connor is founder of the Covent Garden ice cream parlour Icecreamists.[2]



He has three sons.

London Mayoral campaign

In January 2008, O'Connor was selected by the English Democrats as their candidate in the London mayoral election. However with one week to go before the election, on 25 April 2008, O'Connor announced to the BBC and Vanessa Feltz that he had decided to pull out of the race citing lack of media coverage.[3]
