Reliable sources for dates of birth, etc.[edit]

I note that you are adding specific dates of birth to articdle which had only a tear of birth. Where is this information coming from? Because "date of birth vandalism" is a problem on Wikipedia, you are going to need to provide citations from reliable source for these changes, so we verify this information and be certain that it is correct. I've reverted many of your edits that were not sourced, please do not try to restore them with a citation from a reliable source, they will simply be removed again.

Incidentally, the requirement for a reliable source goes for every piece of information added to Wikipedia if it is questioned by another editor. Thanks, BMK (talk) 02:46, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Numbering of British Prime Ministers[edit]

British Prime Ministers aren't numbered like US Presidents for several boring reasons. Firstly, the term "Prime Minister" wasn't used until the early twentieth century, before then the office was called "First Lord of the Treasury", in fact to this day the Prime Minister still is the First Lord of the Treasury, that's what it says on No. 10's letterbox. Another thing is, the United Kingdom didn't exist until 1801, before then it was Great Britain, so technically Robert Walpole was the first Prime Minister of Great Britain and Henry Addington was the last Prime Minister of Great Britain and the first Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Also, there is a debate as to weather non-consecutive terms are counted twice, like the way the Americans count Grover Cleveland, the Downing Street website says Gordon Brown will be the 52nd person to walk through the doors of Downing Street as PM not the 75th. Then there is the issue of how many times Ramsay MacDonald is counted as the government changed part way through his second term but he remained as Prime Minister. Finally, it's just not a British tradition to count the number people who have held a particular office. Regards - Galloglass 19:40, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
