Dear readers, you may have noticed that the BlotReport has been a bit sluggish over recent weeks. I suspect this is in part because of my verbosity, in that I have written over 600 essays since I started the blog. You may also have been unable to access it over the last few days. This is because it has been moved to another, faster host. The most recent posts, a quote from Pericles and a rant on the Coalition government were tests of the speed of the new host. Let me know if you have a problem or find any quirks which irritate you. Now back to reporting on the too numerous blots on the political landscape.
