This is an ‘html-only’ version of Scribblings with no database behind it. This means it is not possible to search it. I am working on a new version with which I am hoping to eventually put back into the main site. The new version is here but please note that there is no link directly back to the main site.

Non-news about Blunkett

I don’t get this. The Evening Standard is reporting that the Home Secretary, David Blunkett, is not the father of his lover’s child with the headline Blunkett Baby Shock. I find this perplexing. Just why is it news? Surely it would be more newsworthy if Blunkett were the father. Is it just more in the Standard’s long running campaign to rubbish the government or what? Or has Blunkett, for some reason which I also cannot fathom, been claiming that he is the father and, if so, why? Does it really matter one way or the other? Probably not.

An apology

Since moving the site to a new server Scribblings is not as easy to find your way around as it used to be. It used to depend on a script and a database on the server but is currently served as ‘flat html’.

I have some ideas about how to make it a bit easier but they depend on writing another script. I hope to get around to it ‘eventually’.
