Moderating posts

I have deleted a number of posts today, as I am short of time. I have deleted some without reading because they were very  long, and some which are  very repetitious in nature, as well as deleting many with attached links to sites I have not read.

    That is sensible management, which many users will appreciate, both in better use of your time, & in maintaining the quality of the site.

    It is your site do as you think best but please keep up your good work. I am amazed you find the time to manage it? Do not not have any help?

    Can people perhaps make a donation to cover your costs?

    Reply I do not want the hassle of donations!

    I read what I wrote so it was received by a better type of person all told.

    Purely as a reader I would suggest again a word maximum and no off topics. It is your show.

    I suggest having a maximum length for each contribution would reduce the problem.

    Guardian “May’s immigration policy seen as ‘almost reminiscent of Nazi Germany’
    Comments from ex-civil service chief Sir Bob Kerslake increase pressure on PM as row over Windrush-era citizens continues”

    May cannot just keep ignoring these slights against her personally, it is ironic she was the one who said the Tory party was seen as ‘nasty’ I wonder how she feels when the finger of blame is pointed directly at her good self.

    Enough, enough, you Conservative Ministers might think you should just sit and take abuse about your natures and personalities lying down but someone needs to mount a fight back. The British public demand of you not to take too much tax, you get elected on promises to control benefit abuse, people can’t have two faces on these matters. All of the other backbench MPs need to start supporting the government properly like you do with your blog and representations on tv programs, the others seem content to have Owen Jones leading some sort of …….. youth campaigning against anything he personally doesn’t like
