From Mr David Wilder

Sir: Polly Toynbee's article was interesting but flawed by a silly generalisation. Our daughter is unmarried and supports a large mortgage in a socially deprived area of London. Deep into negative equity, her only way out will be to inherit our home. Our hope for her to do this is surely not ignoble? There will be no BMW or Caribbean holiday for her. Just an escape from a trap.

Yours faithfully,

David Wilder
