Yes, I’m back from my holiday and didn’t evolve any gills to deal with the regular deluges that covered Cumbria during my time there. It seems that, in my absence, I was somehow voted the 73rd best Lib Dem blog, which isn’t bad considering that for most of the year it covered, one post per month felt like a ridiculously high level of output.

Anyway, automatic posts are now over, we’re back to fresh drivel delivered to you with no delay. Some interesting comments while I was away, which I will respond to tomorrow.
