SIR- Richard Madeley on Good Morning Britain sparked a backlash after clashing with a guest supporting primary schools dropping the term 'mum and dad'.

But the backlash should have been sparked by the idiots who are banning the term mum and dad.

This is unbelievable and it's about time people everywhere stood up to this pathetic nonsense and stopped tolerating it. It makes no sense and achieves nothing.

I had a mum and dad and no one is ever going to change that!
