More promising news from Britain

I post a story about Britain moving towards sharing parenting a couple of weeks ago, and now a reader sends this followup:
Ministers intend to rewrite the law in an attempt to ensure that fathers get improved access to their offspring after a marriage breaks down.
Currently, family courts decide to leave children with their mothers in the vast majority of divorce cases.

Campaigners have long complained that without a legal right to see their children, fathers can be excluded, particularly when a split has been acrimonious. By creating the new right for children, ministers hope that judges ruling on custody disputes will ensure more equal access for both parents.
I will be tracking this. It appears to be huge progress in Britain.
