Bristol People's Party[edit]

Does anyone have details of the BPP in the mid 90s? I only very vaguely recall it, but it seems like an important stage between the CW years & The Bristolian. Bristle-krs (talk) 10:51, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

"son of a butler working class background?!" surely son of a man in a lower managerial position - pretty firmly lower middle class. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:37, 3 May 2012 (UTC)


Hi, I'm not sure if Anarchist! was actually by Stewart Home. Both Home and Bone have very distinctive personal styles, also I distinctly remember Anarchist! coming out in print in Bristol, while Stewart Home is London based. Can anyone help clear this up? --Badnewswade 23:13, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Why does this article still exist?[edit]

I see that this article was nominated for deletion back in 2005 and the result of the discussion was 'delete'. Why then does the article still exist? Somebody must know.  SmokeyTheCat  •TALK• 23:58, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Looking at the history log, I suspect it was deleted in 2005, and later re-created. That AfD is a prime example of WP editors' "need to feel they're doing something" overriding their cluelessness on a topic. Andy Dingley (talk) 10:07, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

this article should definetly remain — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:33, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

I believe this article contains serious inaccuracies and is, in addition, a biography of someone who is not a prominent person. I tried to edit the page and have been warned off by One Night in Hackney on the grounds of sockpuppetry, although I suspect the real sock puppet may be ONIH himself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Consperanza (talkcontribs) 12:38, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Ian Bone is an important figure in the anarchist movement, having contributed to and founded the largest British Anarchist group of the late eighties and early nineties. He has added to the direction of UK anarchism and as such, has contributed to what is often used as justification by police for public order tactics. Any serious analysis of UK anarchism (as opposed to dismissal or vague acknowledgement as a footnote along with other non-parliamentary politics) should acknowledge his contribution. The organization he founded managed to get a 15,000 circulation of it's paper which in itself made it a best selling political paper and gives it importance. For these reasons this article should exist and calls for it's deletion shows a political bias, as well as a dismissal of a political strand, based upon a narrow definition of what is acceptable and important politics while ignoring contributions of both cultures of resistance and well established non-parliamentary theorys such as anarchism.
