Infobox, Leaders[edit]

A section for 'leaders' is inappropriate and I propose removing it from the infobox. Currently there are four names on the list which is silly and against the purpose of an infobox. A better subheading would be 'minister responsible', if not just have nothing. Each BOT has its own style of local governance, which is one description of 'leader'. There is a minister responsible for the BOTs, but that ministry is within the FCO. The Queen is not a leader in the sense implied here. A country style infobox template is awkward when dealing with a collection of geographical entities or an administrative-political grouping.Roger 8 Roger (talk) 21:52, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

The Queen is head of state for the BOT, I agree she is not a leader as such, more of a figure head. Equally the BOT come under the FCO, so there is the admin side of that. Yes the BOT govern themselves, with the only function of the FCO being to provide diplomatic representation. However, how else are we to put this into an infobox? Simply removing this summary is silly and against the purpose of an infobox, so I oppose simple removal. What is the alternative you propose? WCMemail 07:39, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

If there needs to be something there that indicates someone "in charge" of the BOTs, then I think the best one would be the minister directly responsible for BOTS. However, I would change the word 'leader' to 'Minister responsible/of State' (Lord Ahmed I think) because 'leader' simply does not fit. If the Queen is mentioned I think it should be after the sub heading 'Monarch', as elsewhere, such as with Bermuda. To be more specific in this article, why not just remove the heading 'Leader', plus remove the Foreign secretay and the Duncan? Roger 8 Roger (talk) 09:27, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Queen is Head of State not just Monarch, I've no problem with removing Leader from the Infobox, nor with keeping just the Minister. WCMemail 12:13, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
