Talk about Newsnight - gremlins all gone

Regular contributors to Talk About Newsnight may have noticed that in recent days the site has been, to coin a technical term, a bit "broken".

rubbish1_203.jpgKeen not to deprive our viewers of their forum, we enticed Jeremy Paxman - under the pretence that he was being sent forth among the Newsnight desks to rage against a particularly unsightly area of litter in the vicinity of Martha Kearney's shelves - to clean up any gremlins with the aid of one of those claw things on the end of a stick. The Newsnight mouse, incidentally, managed to avoid being ensnared by Paxman's pincers.

In other words the bugs are, we're told, now fixed and Newsnight viewers are again free to praise, complain, debate, compose verse, tell jokes, or anything else you usually like to use the Newsnight blog for.

Sorry again. But do let us know if it stirs any poetry within you...
