BLPN discussion[edit]

An issue with this article has been raised at WP:BLPN#Peter Luff. January (talk) 16:59, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

I have today raised a new discussion which can be accessed from the same shortcut. January (talk) 10:40, 15 April 2014 (UTC)


The help of an editor would be greatly appreciated.

I am concerned that my biographical entry contains misleading - and a disproportionally large amount of - information about a brief and admittedly unhappy part of my life, written by a political opponent. For the second time I have serious objections to the section on my expenses claims.

Earlier false allegations were removed with your help, but now a new section has appeared which misleads readers about important aspects of this story. I can have no objection to the episode being referred to - it is par of my life - but it should be both accurate and proportionate. I would obviously prefer the whole section to be removed, but if that is considered inappropriate, then I believe it should lose its headline, should be contained in the main biography section, rewritten as a sentence or so, and should be balanced with more material on other aspects of my political and ministerial life.

Specifically the implication that I "flipped“ is wrong and defamatory as I was obliged to change the designation of my home under the Commons rules for ministers and other paid appointments, when I became Assistant Chief Whip. The whole tenor of this section is therefore inaccurate. I did not "deny” flipping, I proved it to be wrong – indeed, to the best of my recollection, The Telegraph never even reported it; even they accepted that I was obliged to change the designation and did not act out of choice.

Expenses scandal[edit] In May 2009, the Telegraph reported[5] that in the months before he switched the designation of his second home from Worcester to the capital, Luff paid for more than £5,000 of decorating and repairs, including the £53.71 cost of having his Aga cooker fixed. Six months later, he switched his designation to a small flat in south London, where he spent more than £3,000 decorating the bathroom, kitchen, sitting room and hall. Mr Luff denied he had flipped his designation.

I have removed what seems to me to be trivia, per WP:UNDUE and WP:BLP Cwobeel (talk) 14:24, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
