Move request[edit]

From WP:RM:

According to the hated Google test, "C. Northcote Parkinson" is more frequent than "Cyril Northcote Parkinson", but not overwhelmingly so. All the book covers I've seen give it as "C. Northcote Parkinson", so unless there's a good reason to spell out the "Cyril" in full, I can't see any support for the move. --Stemonitis 07:00, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

    • I really don't care that much. If C is that much more common then it is fine. It just looks weird to me seeing an article name abbreviated like that. (abbreviating first name but giving full middle name) I tend to be an advocate of expanding abbreviations. If someone contests it, leave it. Mr.Z-mantalk¢ 16:22, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
    • It may look weird, but this is how he was known. -- Geo Swan 16:43, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Missing Recording[edit]

As I child my parents had a whole LP of C. Northcote Parkinson talking about his various theories including The Finance Committee, How to place an advert for a job and many other classics. I remeber it as being red with gold foil bits. Having scoured he web I can find no reference to it. I will try and find it next time I am home, but in the meantime if anyone has a record it would be wonderful to make it available to all. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoebebright (talkcontribs) 12:53, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
