MP for Seaham[edit]

This article said that Webb was elected as MP for Seaham at the 1923 general election. However, a Google search throws up conflicting results:

For now, I have taken the Concise Britannica as the most reputable of these sources, and edited the article to say 1922, but has anyone got a more definitive reference? --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 18:08, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Doesn't Rayment say 1922? - Crosbiesmith 18:55, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

attacked by Trotsky[edit]

It might be worth mentioning that the Webbs are seen by Trotsky as a canonical example of well-meaning but confused pro-Soviet foreigners— their works get attacked frequently in The Revolution Betrayed in particular. --Delirium 05:03, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

" Stalin initiated and carried out his plan to murder 10 million Ukrainian Kulaks and Russians through orchestrated starvation."[edit]

As you know, the very citation that follows the above statement speaks for itself: I DID site that information, it's in the same book as the citation link (ref: the very citation link you'd have to be blind not to see). Stop vandalizing this article because you want to marry Stalin, thanks.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.79.124.223 (talk) 18:15, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Let's try this: CITE YOUR REFERENCES. This should be obvious. Srobak (talk) 18:18, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

THE GREAT TERROR is the reference genius. It's in the SAME BOOK as the citing link indicates.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.79.124.223 (talk) 18:28, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

The existing text summarises the situation sufficiently for an article about Sidney Webb. The article about Stalin is the place for more detail. In the meantime it is best to be polite (WP:CIVIL) and not make personal attacks (WP:NPA),Lozleader (talk) 18:56, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
