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!

Webcheck - it's more of a hobby than anything else
Respublica Policy Limited, number 06974842 - OVERDUE! Perhaps we need a communitarian, village-based system, where the plain people of England watch over each other and smiling housewives and cheerful vicars make sure that everyone gets their regulatory filings in on time. Or perhaps Philip Blond and his amanuenses forgot about the existence of Respublica Policy Limited, given that Respublica Public Policy Limited was formed two months later with the same registered address (and so isn't late yet).
hmmmm ... No that can't be it. Per their about page, Res Publica is a trading name of both RPL and RPPL, with RPL being a company limited by shares and RPPL taking the more normal form (for an thinktank which doesn't really need shareholders) of a company limited by guarantee. I am not sure what's up here - I can only presume that somebody anticipated the thinktank making a profit at some point (neither RPL nor RPPL are charities) and wanted there to be a structure where this profit could be paid out to somebody. Whatever else is the case, get cracking on that CH return please lads, it should have been in on the 25th of August.
