At a fringe event at the Con­ser­va­tive Party Con­fer­ence Iain Dun­can Smith called on sin­gle ladies to do the honourable thing and marry a dys­func­tional man. Or he might as well have done when he said un­mar­ried men be­come a ‘prob­lem for so­ci­ety’ and, out of wed­lock, are ‘re­leased to do things they wouldn’t nor­mally do.’ But why should a man rely on a woman’s moth­er­ing to rein him in and stop him be­hav­ing like a de­plorable thug? We’d rather live in a world where ev­ery­one takes re­spon­si­bil­ity for their ac­tions in­stead of re­ly­ing on a part­ner to set them on the straight and nar­row. That’s surely prefer­able to IDS’S vi­sion of Gilead?
