Palmerston and Aberdeen re the Oregon Question[edit]

Please see entry of same title on Talk:Henry Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston.Skookum1 07:17, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

The link to The Athenian Society seem to go a different Athenian Society than indicated in the article. --FinnWiki (talk) 00:25, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Infobox title order[edit]

Why isn't his Prime Ministership at the top of the infobox, like every other PM of the UK? SmallEditsForLife (talk) 08:12, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

No use of paragraphs[edit]

Religion[edit]

The infobox declares his religion Church of England but the picture from his biography in the ODNB (2004), seems less simple. As the biographer puts it, "North of the border" he considered himself "ex officio a Presbyterian", was a member of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland pre Schism of 1843, and exercised his patronage rights on churches on his Scotland estates despite, in one case, a legal challenge. Pre Schism (1840) he admitted to Gladstone he preferred "the sister church" [of England] and worshipped in Anglican churches in England, being buried at one. How might this be expressed in the infobox?Cloptonson (talk) 11:18, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

In the meantime I have added a new section "Religious interests" to lay out his position, sourced to that ODNB article.Cloptonson (talk) 10:41, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
