SIR: So the government is finally instigating a review into the social care budget? About time - especially after they’ve stolen the homes of thousands of taxpayers over the years to pay for their care at the end of their lives.

Well, while I await the outcome with baited breath I can tell you there is only one way to solve this problem and that is with a Radical change to the NHS - Remove maternity and privatise it. No longer can we afford to pay for something that is not an illness. You want to have a baby? Then you must pay for it! No longer should we have to bear the continued cost of a third or fourth child born into a dysfunctional, unemployed family of couch potatoes. Then maybe people will think before they decide to start a family.
