Untitled[edit]

This article should NOT be merged with devolution, at least not entirely. "Home rule" is a principle that extends beyond the specifics of UK politics. olderwiser 12:38, 26 Sep 2004 (UTC)

For example, District of Columbia home rule, which perhaps should be mentioned somewhere in this article. KCinDC (talk) 00:25, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

POV in "Further reading" section?[edit]

The inclusion of a single publication promoting a unionist stance ('Against Home Rule; the case for the Union') seems to me to be an attempt to push a specific point of view; I propose deleting it, since any attempt to select another publication to balance it is fraught with hazards. -- Timberframe (talk) 22:40, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I'll take the ensuing silence as agreement / apathy and delete the "further reading" section. -- Timberframe (talk) 17:26, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Municipal home rule[edit]

Many town/city articles link to this article, while they should instead link to Municipal home rule. --141.3.48.218 (talk) 12:58, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Then please be bold - go ahead and change the links as you see fit, unless the article talk pages show a good reason for leaving them pointing here. -- Timberframe (talk) 17:23, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Greenland a province?[edit]

The article currently says

Greenland is a self-governing Danish province. Home rule was granted by Danish parliament in 1979.

But the article Greenland says

On 21 June 2009, Greenland assumed self-determination with responsibility for self-government of judicial affairs, policing, and natural resources

Does this mean it is no longer a "province" (if it ever was -- I don't see that word anywhere in the article Greenland)? If so, this should be updated. Duoduoduo (talk) 22:48, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
