We are pleased to announce that Daniel Dykes, the young volunteer who designed this site, has now installed a facility to allow readers to comment on these columns. You can go back and comment on any artiles we have published in the past, too. In addition you can also vote in a series of polls which are to appear on the frontpage.
To comment or to vote, you must register, which is a very simple and unintrusive operation. Comments will be moderated, principally but not only for legal reasons, and of course we retain the right to refuse publication or to amend comments where we feel that this is necessary.
We thank Daniel Dykes for his considerable assistance in our work
