On 7 March 2010, we published an article by Zoe Margolis. In part of the first edition of the newspaper and online, this article carried the headline, “I was a hooker who became an agony aunt”. This was written by the newspaper not Ms Margolis. We accept that Ms Margolis is not and never has been “a hooker” or otherwise involved in the sex industry. The wording of the headline was a mistake and seriously defamatory of Ms Margolis. We offer our sincere apologies to Ms Margolis for the damage to her reputation and the distress and embarrassment which she has suffered.

But it's good to know that parents can limit the damage by reading to their offspring every day. The Sutton Trust recommends the Government provide 25 hours a week of education to the most disadvantaged three and four-year-olds instead of giving all children that age a bit more. Targeting the most needy would be a brave decision.
