Sheppard's memory disrespected Leave the Treaty where it is Sweet sounds find a convert Colonisation part of Empire's history Spying is spying no matter who does it Sense of scale lets down theories GCSB here to spy, not to protect us Pressure was on Pistorius judge Lions need all the help they can get Economy should be front and centre

OPINION: Tracey Steel (Letters, Jan 18) is correct in pointing out the obvious - that women don't have to be married to have children.

One of the biggest contributors to our present social mess has been the birth of children to women who are either unmarried or else living in sin with a man.

Now we're expected to agree that this is perfectly normal and proper, even if single mothers have decided to be kept by the taxpayers indefinitely as a valid lifestyle choice, or if children in de facto families are insecure and uncertain all round, as many are.
