Other articles that maybe worth a look are May Queen (with a suggested split of article as mentioned at Talk:May_Queen#Oldest) and Bulldog (with a suggested reference to British Bulldog as at Talk:Bulldog#British_bulldog). Gregkaye (talk) 09:45, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Creation of the United Kingdom[edit]

On the main page, paragraph 4, we read: "The kingdom of England (which included Wales). . ."

Now, how did that happen? When one nation comes to "include" another, it seems some explanation is needed!

Likewise, "In 1800, Great Britain was united with Ireland" makes it sound as if it was by mutual consent; a glance at Irish history tells us it was not so!

We mustn't let our natural pride in our nation blind us to the realities of our relationships with other nations. For our own well-being more than for our neighbours', we need to be honest. Hoffoholi (talk) 12:07, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

List of Church of England dioceses[edit]

I have nominated List of Church of England dioceses to go up on the main page, and some concerns have been raised here, specifically with respect to sourcing. Any help you are able to provide in finding additional sourcing for the information in the list would be greatly appreciated. Neelix (talk) 18:41, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
