Working in Westminster

Regular readers will have noticed that, recently, I have not been blogging as frequently as I used to.

I am not on strike. Nor on a go slow. It’s just that other tasks have got in the way, and this has required me to think even more carefully about what I say about various matters.

No, I haven’t been threatened by anyone.

But I have recently been appointed Specialist Adviser to the Joint Parliamentary Committee on the draft Communications Data Bill. Accordingly, I will not be commenting on anything that anyone could remotely link with the work of that Joint Committee. People anxious for an up-to-date briefing on the Joint Committee’s work should check out the Committee’s website.

But I’ll still, no doubt, find plenty of time to write about other issues over the rest of this year.

Wish me luck.
