Copy-and-paste page moving[edit]

Hello, Sundostund. Thank you for taking the time to edit Wikipedia; I am very happy to see that you are enthusiastic about improving the encyclopedia. I am concerned about your recent edits, ostensibly to rename the pages List of governors-general of India and List of governors of Andhra Pradesh. On Wikipedia, you should never rename a page by copying and pasting the contents of an article to a different title. This makes it impossible to track the revision history over time. Instead you should always use the "Move" button (located in the dropdown box by the bar where the edit button is). If there is a redirect in the way, go to the redirect page and add {{db-move|current name of page|reason to move}} to it. However, in this case there may be a pre-existing consensus for, e.g., having lists treat "governor" as a common noun rather than a proper noun, so I would recommend seeking consensus through the Requested Moves process. I am not sure how familiar you are with Wikipedia processes, so let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Harej (talk) 15:57, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Opposition Leaders in Rhodesia[edit]

I spotted your post on various noticeboards about the Leaders of the Opposition in Rhodesia. Fortunately I can get to the Hansard record of debates in the Southern Rhodesia Legislative Assembly and the later UDI Rhodesian Parliament which is a good source for who was recognised. The first point to observe is that the post of Leader of the Opposition was only ever unofficially recognised. In the UK the post was only officially recognised and paid a salary in 1937; Rhodesia never seems to have made any moves to do so. The unofficial recognition was dependent on circumstances as sometimes there were almost no opposition members. That being said, the situation appears to have been as follows:

1928-33: Hon Robert Gilchrist (Progressive Party/Reform Party)
1933-34: Hon Percy Finn (Rhodesia Party) - subsequently none when the Rhodesia Party merged with the Reform Party
1934-40: Harry Davies (Rhodesia Labour Party) - may have ended in 1939 when he accepted Huggins's invitation to him to join the government
1940-46: Donald Macintyre (Rhodesia Labour Party)
1946-48: Hon Jacob Smit (Southern Rhodesia Liberal Party)
1948-54: Raymond Stockil (Southern Rhodesia Liberal Party, although it appears the party fell apart during this assembly)
In the 1954 election, the only opposition members elected were Independents. No Leader of the Opposition was recognised, although Raymond Stockil and Stewart Aitken-Cade seemed to be recognised as having a leadership role.
1958-59: Raymond Stockil (Dominion Party)
1959-60: Stewart Aitken-Cade (Dominion Party)
1960-62: William Harper (Dominion Party)
1962: William Cary (Dominion Party)
1962-65: Sir Edgar Whitehead (United Federal Party)
1965: David Butler (United Federal Party)
At the 1965 election, the Rhodesian Front won all of the 50 constituencies with a mostly white electorate, and the Rhodesia Party opposition won only in the districts which had a mostly black electorate. As a result the Rhodesia Party soon dissolved and had itself replaced by an African opposition party.
1965-67: Josiah Gondo (Rhodesia Party/United People's Party)
1967-69: Percy Mkudu (United People's Party)
1969-70: Chad Chipunza (United People's Party)

At the 1970 election, the electoral system changed. Although the African MPs formed themselves into parties, the Rhodesian Front government declined to recognise any of them as the formal Opposition and therefore did not have a Leader of the Opposition. There was a white opposition party, the Rhodesia Party formed by Rhodesian Front defector Allan Savory MP in 1972, but he was not recognised as Leader of the Opposition either. Neither was the Rhodesian Action Party recognised as the lead Opposition party when formed in 1977 - instead the Rhodesian Front government dissolved Parliament.

There are several useful books about internal politics within (Southern) Rhodesia:

  • Colin Leys, "European Politics in Southern Rhodesia", Oxford University Press, 1959
  • James Barber, "Rhodesia: The Road to Rebellion", Oxford University Press, 1967
  • M. C. Steele, "White Working Class Disunity: the Southern Rhodesia Labour Party", Rhodesian History, vol 1, 1970 (article in historical journal, very useful in explaining what happened in 1940-45)
  • Hon. A.R.W. Stumbles, "Some Recollections of a Rhodesian Speaker", Books of Rhodesia, 1980

They can be fairly difficult to find but larger libraries can trace them. Sam Blacketer (talk) 15:42, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Acting[edit]

According the 2014 Constitution, the Prime Minister will be elected by Parliament. But here, there is no parliament, so no election of PM and so it is an Acting PM. --Panam2014 (talk) 14:17, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

category living people[edit]

Thanks. Somewhere I got the idea that the category applied to groups. Now that I've looked at the Category:Living people, I see my error. Alas, I've got more work to do in order to correct my mistakes. (That is what I get for taking on a project to clear a backlog). Cheers. – S. Rich (talk) 19:10, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
