Sorry - but I've had to switch on comment moderation - until after the General Election anyway. I'm desperately disappointed about this. I hope it will not put you off commenting. For some reason, traffic on my site has increased a lot recently. I'm pleased about this, but its not as important to me as the number of comments - which has never been as high as I'd like. I enjoy writing my posts - and I would like to hear from those of you who disagree with me. But I simply cannot allow offensive comments on my blog while I'm a parliamentary candidate. I will approve everything except the truly offensive.
