Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

A few facts which might be of interest to Craig Murray and to Clarke Willmott LLP
Regular readers might note that I have taken down a couple of posts recently which contained material that might be thought relevant to this affair. Rest assured, they have only been temporarily hidden; they, and the automatic timestamps which blogger.com puts on them, remain in my drafts folder. For the time being, though, I think the public domain can get along with the following factual information.
1. I am a financial professional and blogger, who has occasionally in the past taken an interest in the think-tank industry in the UK, which I tend to regard as a baleful influence on our political culture.
2. As part of my interest in thinktanks, I occasionally post on this blog on the subject of which thinktanks have failed to make Companies House filings on time. I occasionally make postings on the subject on this blog, which are automatically dated by the Blogger software I use. I can therefore supply contemporaneous and timestamped electronic notes supporting all the assertions made below.
3. On 20 October 2009, the Companies House Webcheck service reported that no accounts had been filed by the Quilliam Foundation Ltd, and that the first set of accounts had been due on 20 September, and were thus overdue (the word "OVERDUE" was recorded on the Webcheck site next to the due date). The date of 20 September would have been a logical date for the deadline for filing, as it represented 21 months after the date of incorporation - the maximum delay for filing a first set of accounts.
4. On 4 November 2009, the Companies House Webcheck service still reported that the Quilliam Foundation Ltd's accounts were overdue and that the due date was 20 September.
5. On some day between 4 November and 10 November (which I did not record because I made the note as an update to my 4 November post), the due date changed to 30 November 2009. I noted at the time that "presumably this is indicative of somebody getting their act together"; it would be logical to assume that it reflected an extension having been granted by CH.
6. On 10 November (a date of which I can be sure because although I also recorded it as an edit to my 4 November post, I remembered to date it), the Quilliam Foundation accounts were first listed as having been filed for the period to 31 March 2009.
