An update on our comment system

22:47, Jul 05 2013

There will be many of you out there with itchy keyboard fingers from not being able to give your views on the news of the week due to the conspicuous absence of our comment function.

Unfortunately, the technical issue that has been affecting our system since Tuesday is ongoing, and we're not able to re-open comments on the website this weekend.

We appreciate that this has been very frustrating for many users. It's been really frustrating for us too and we've missed hearing your opinions this week.

Our team will be working extremely hard over the weekend to resolve this problem and we hope to be able to re-open comments on a screen near you very soon.

Thanks for your patience. Ya'll come back now, ya hear?
