No intervention

Congratulations to ­Tiffany Jenkins for her excellent article (Perspective, 21 February) ­regarding the named person ­legislation.

It clearly pointed out the high possibility of unwarranted ­intervention into family life by those whose ideas of how to bring up children differed from those of the parents, and also how many of those who ­really need help could easily slip under the radar.

Yes, the legislation is extremely sinister and I for one am not willing to support any politician who cannot see the serious ­implications of taking our ­country down such a dangerous road.
