Breda O'Brien on Myers/Lone Parents

A very balanced article by Breda O'Brien on this important and sensitive issue
"A laudable attempt to support lone parents by providing them with the bare minimum needed to maintain dignity, had the unexpected side-effect of making it impossible for many people to live together, much less marry, because of the loss of benefits which would result. This situation needs to be discussed, but it will only happen if a space can be found where defences can be lowered, in order to address an issue that could scarcely be more vital to us all, that is, the long-term welfare of all our children."
