Sorry

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.

Understanable Glyn. I had a similar experience prior to May's elections and took it as a compliment that my political opponents felt the need to post/blog in such a manner.

If like me, you'll find a few idiots trying to post the same commnents continually'

Keep blogging.

It doesn't seem to have stopped camments. My problem is that I usually visit my site once a day - late in the evening. So I have asked Mrs D to approve comments as well so it should work ok.

Thanks Janet. Even though Gordon Brown has decided not to hold a General Election until 2009, I intend to carry on running a Conservative office in Montgomeryshire until it is held. All help will be gratefully received.

Glyn:

It's a shame you're having to moderate the comments. It has been refreshing to have an open politico debating and commenting in the way you have. Hopefully you'll be able to return to normal service soon. Keep it up.

Oh, and congratulations on becoming a grandfather.

Montg Witness - I do not intend to refuse to publish any comment unless it used seriously profane, racist or otherwise offensive language. Deeply insulting comments are acceptable! Main problem is that I often only reach my computer late in the evening.
