This article looks like it's plagiarising an obituary. A rewrite is needed. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:38, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
I agree, I do not think the tone of the following paragraphs encyclopaedic:
Naive or optimistic, or just unappreciative of war culture, Allaun was a straight up-and-down idealist. His style was intensely gentle, the voice never raised, but the questions - chiefly on peace and housing - insistent. The beautiful manners and the soft Lancashire voice must have got on ministerial nerves. But then, as one of the organisers of the first Aldermaston march, he helped launch a movement whose appeal in the late 1950s and 1960s did more than get on nerves.
Outside the peace movement, his preoccupation was with public housing, and the vastly increased expenditure he urged should be paid for by cuts, equally massive, in defence. Defence cuts would, of course, come, but, despite Allaun's life work, Britain remained a nuclear power.
If you are directly quoting an obituary or tribute it is better to introduce it as such and directly cite it accordingly.Cloptonson (talk) 09:58, 14 September 2015 (UTC)
