Okay, I may sound stupid here but that won't be anything new so lets go for it.

If just outside the singularity there is in an infinite gravtiational force, then surely, in accordance with the relationship of forces (1/r^2), then the force must always be infinite.
No,
the gravitational force is infinite at the singularity because r=0. At any r>0 the gravitational force is finite.
