Contested deletion[edit]

This article should not be speedily deleted for lack of asserted importance because... Lots of excellent sources. Times. Mirror. Random House. BBC. --GRuban (talk) 20:49, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

It dosn't assert any importance, if he is important the artcle should assert it, and prove it. CombatWombat42 (talk) 20:58, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
"one of the United Kingdom's most notorious bank robbers" isn't an assertion of importance? Anyway, if it's speedily deleted, there's no time to prove it. --GRuban (talk) 21:08, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
  • The Daily Mirror is not a reliable source, and Random House is a primary source. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 00:15, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
  • The Daily Mirror is indeed not a good source. The bit that particularly stands out from it is the claim of being "Britain's youngest armed robber". Really? How do we know that? I'm guessing they probably meant that at the time of a conviction he was the youngest person to have been found guilty of the offence of armed robbery. That isn't what the newspaper actually says, of course, because it is a pretty rubbish red-top tabloid that prefers sensationalism and pithy wording to accuracy. There is no way that newspaper or any other can possibly substantiate what it does in fact say: the youngest may never have been caught, identified etc. - Sitush (talk) 03:19, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
