Cleanup[edit]

I think so many quotations are unnecessary and even counter-productive, the most of them should transferred to Wikiquote. ~~ Phoe talk 16:56, 6 January 2007 (UTC) ~~

I know what you mean although I'm not sure they are really wikiquote material being only of interest or relevance at this article location. Perhaps some careful and considered pruning of some of the repetitions as this article has clearly had a lot of time and effort put into it. Alci12 19:25, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
In the Cleanup, should non-encyclopedic comments like "distinctly pink whig" be addressed as well? --131.207.236.198 07:51, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
The pink quote comes from a book about Brook's, pending the exact citation.Rodolph 04:10, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
Thanks Alci12 for the recognition.

I don't think neutrality should be questioned, by whoever did that. How neutral is anything ever going to be? The quotes I think are easy to read, but maybe transferable. and I regret that the significance of a birth weight of 14 Ilbs is disputed, such a fact is of interest to women, and showed the strength of the man. Hercules was relevant owing to the title of the only biography on the subject, and it recognised the protean nature of the man, that is difficult to capture in 1,000 words. It is a deep shame that an article attracts such changes (not those from Phoe or Alci12, but those from the other people. Rodolph 04:10, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

It was a somewhat unwieldy article, I think, at least by Wikipedia standards, which (sometimes, unfortunately) are the standards that apply here. Now that the subject is no longer living, it's probably worth a clean, especially since we'll get a number of obits which can be weighed up for NPOV. I also think the birth weight is notable if it's one of those early facts that Jellicoe carried with him in later life. Holgate 13:29, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

I have amended and made corrections to some detail which have clearly been copied directly and uncritically from errors which themselves appear in the Lorna Almonds Windmill biography of the subject. KeepSureSilence81.19.57.130 15:36, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Isle of Wight?[edit]

It is not clear from this article why he is connected with the Isle of Wight, as it says at the bottom. The is t Earl Jellicoe-the Admiral at Jutland, retired to the Isle of Wight, so perhaps this is a mistake ? The article says he was born at Hatfield, which is nowhere near.--Streona (talk) 08:29, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

...fulsome tributes were paid in the Lords to their departed leader[edit]

I know the word fulsome has lately been misused so many times that it is starting actually to mean what those misusers think it means...something like "resounding and full". But this is a conservatively written piece about a conservative man. Can we not reserve our use of this word for its original meaning? It springs from the word "foul" not "full" and means disgustingly overdone. Rumiton (talk) 15:10, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
