There's a lot of spam around at the moment, so I am temporarily disabling Anonymous comments. Apologies to commenters: I shall reinstitute open access when things have calmed down slightly.

Are the CAPTCHAs failing to do the trick any more?

If so, Blogger really needs to consider a move to ReCAPTCHA, which as far as I'm aware has not been cracked as yet.

As long as it's not like the "type every letter with a cat in it (cat may be a dog, letter may be a number)" thing that rapidshare uses.

You too, eh? I just installed a new wordpress plugin, and it seems to be working so far.

What kills me is the spam itself. Eel sex? There are people who fantasize about having sex with eels? Eeeeuw.

Eel sex? Brings a whole new meaning to 'sleeps with the fishes'. I wonder how you'd go about it?

You could just refuse to speak to anyone espousing The Politics That Dare Not Speak Its Name.

If someone thinks their argument is sound, they should be prepared to put their name to it. Conversely, if they don't put their name to it...

I'm aware that you are probably joking, but it's worth reminding people that this blog is a private space and I shall publish what I want to publish.

I am not interested in publishing spam, so I delete it. I don't delete any other comments.

DK, seeing as you were very supportive of the idea to ban Darling from pubs across the UK, would you be interested in this?

June 28th at 1pm.

Not a protest, remember. Just a walk around Parliament Square.

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
