Sir: A "real job" is one that maintains the worker doing the job, his partner and all the kids they've produced between them. Five million women aren't "taking advantage of the flexible labour market". Diane Coyle and her middle-class mates might be, but the overwhelming majority of women working part-time are topping up the inadequate wages of the men in their lives.

The Labour Party is right: real jobs are breadwinner jobs.
