We are currently (27 May 2021) having major server issues. We are trying to get back online, and have meanwhile restored this old version of our site.
[Updated Friday 28 May] Please do not comment on articles here — comments will not be approved and will be lost. We’re still running on our old server, but comments will now be accepted in the usual way.
[Updated Friday afternoon 17:27 and 17:40 BST]
We are moving back to the production server, Please refrain from making comments while this message is here. Any new comments will be lost until you see an update to this post.
We have now successfully moved back to our production server. You may notice some minor glitches (e.g. the number of comments on recent articles may be reported incorrectly, but the comments should be there). We will fix these shortly.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
