During purdah

The period of time from when an election is announced until after the election is held has
been known as ‘purdah’ but is now more often referred to as the pre-election period.
There are guidelines for civil servants for what they can and cannot do during purdah – updated guidance due out imminently details rules with social media.
Now, I am not a civil servant but am currently contracted to the Home Office and often speak of work here and on my twitter stream, and I am expected to abide by the same rules as everyone else.
In light of all this, and the mounting ‘to do’ list, I am going to be spending purdah off twitter and not blogging.
Back after May 6th.
