I sense some attempts to draw me into making statements about the conduct of the election in the ward I am standing in. This really wouldn't be sensible or indeed appropriate and so, while I will still be writing weblog entries as usual, I'm going to 'recuse' myself from making any comments until after May 3rd, on well, just about anything, that way an innocent remark on any subject, can't be misinterpreted. So no direct questions until after then please because I simply won't answer. If it's really important, you can always email me.
I can't, by the way, always see where comments go, particularly if they refer to earlier posts and to be honest, I don't always have the time available to read through and if necessary, respond to them all; I'd never get any work done. So if you aren't happy with the length and detail of any responses, then 'tough' luck I'm afraid.
So I'll leave the rest of you to get on with the debates and hopefully, I will be able to lift comment moderation altogether if our ultra-left-wing troll goes back on his medication and leaves the field to the more moderate members of his party and any other that might wish to make intelligent and polite comment on what they read.
