He has also produced, directed and edited a documentary on the World War I memorials of Ypres in Belgium.

David said:

“I wrote this book to show the world the incompetence and injustice of the Child Support Agency. An agency that purports to be acting in the best interests of the children but who are in fact both destructive and maladministrative in their actions. If just one person benefits from this book, then I’ll be happy. It was also a cathartic exercise and helped me, to some degree, come to terms with my loss.”
