I had to chuckle to myself as Ofsted have just sent me the following email.
They actually named me Mr. Silverman instead of Mr. Fiddaman.
I guess Ed over at Pharmalot has been making enquiries too.

Dear Mr Silverman
In response to your previous email regarding Paul Blackburn; we have checked and can confirm that it was agreed in discussions that Paul would resign.
It is also not standard practice for Ofsted to send a press release out relating to resignations of its board members.
If you wish to make a request for information from Ofsted under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, we will require a written request detailling the information you require, this will then be passed to the attention of the Information Manager and dealt with accordingly.
I hope this is of help, however if you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
