No blog today as I am travelling to the lands of austerity. Normal service will resume on Tuesday.
For the next 2 weeks I will be in Maastricht (Netherlands) or thereabouts working at CofFEE-Europe, a sibling of my research centre at the University of Newcastle.
I will not be in contact with my servers much before early Monday (Europe time) and as a result moderation of any comments may be delayed. As a note, whenever you post a comment that has an external link then it will always goes into the moderation queue. I will be able to approve some such comments during a stopover in the Middle East but there might still be delays for which I apologise. Patience is the key! Thanks.
If anyone wants to organise a storming of the EU Administration buildings while I am near Brussels this week please let me know and I will come down :-)
