An erstwhile and would be commenter complained that he could not comment. This was due to a configuration issue which I have now changed.
Previously, commenters had to be registered and logged in to comment. I had so many spam registrations — getting on for a thousand — that I deleted all subscribers and prevented registration. Apologies to those whose old comments have disappeared: please blame the spammers.
Given that people would like to comment, I have relaxed the requirement to name and email plus moderation for anyone’s first comment. I do not feel under any obligation to host abusive comments, so disagree by all means, but please use moderate language and please have the courage to use your own name. I may delete comments which are intemperate or anonymous.
To my surprise, a few people seem to think MPs should be available 24×7 online to the whole world. Much as I would like to engage in wide-ranging debate on all channels, there simply is not time.
My constituents come first and they are most welcome to contact me through any of the mechanisms listed on my contact page.
