Sir: The divorce statistics show that single mothers are not the dizzy young things that this and the last government would like to portray us as. Most of us are deeply committed to the wellbeing of our children.

The Child Support Agency has failed to get the fathers of these children to support them adequately, so now this government is going for us mothers. Off our backsides and out to work - and we get to leave our children with strangers for most of the day. If you haven't got a husband to look after you, the state is going to bring up your kids for you, in the form of nursery places, after-school care, and summer schools.
