Proposal for deletion[edit]

I propose that the article on Chris Roycroft-Davis be deleted. I have no POV as to whether being the former editor of a tabloid renders Chris Roycroft-Davis a subject worthy for inclusion on Wikipedia, but this is beyond the issue: what is clear to me is that the entry, as is, reads like a self-laudatory vanity advertisement, created by Chris Roycroft-Davis himself to boot, under the monicker of Mediachris -- which is his blog name. So unless Mr CRD himself, or any of his aficionados, take the time to revamp and Wikify this article, I propose it be deleted ASAP... Rastapopoulos (talk) 08:08, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Of course being former leader writer for the UK's highest selling daily newspaper means he should have a Wikipedia article about him: he probably had more influence getting Tony Blair elected than just about anyone else, and now seems to be trying to do the same for David Cameron. And why leave it to him or his "aficionados" to improve it? That's not the best way to get a neutral article. Just hit that tag that says "edit this page" if it needs improving. I've removed the obviously self-promotional statements and wikified the article. Phil Bridger (talk) 16:45, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
