Use of the Daily Mail & other tabloids[edit]

According to WP:Suggested_sources#Current_news one should "generally avoid British tabloids such as the Daily Mail, Daily Express, The Mirror and The Sun." JRPG (talk) 10:49, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Israel Palestine[edit]

@Quigley2: Can you please revert your edits? You're clearly putting your own spin on issues. The source doesn't refer to the current peace process as "stalled" you've added it in as your own opinion. Your presenting Kendall's opinion on the issue unnecessarily negatively and not keeping to a neutral point of view.Brustopher (talk) 22:09, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

@Brustopher: I've removed "stalled" (anyone reading the article on the Palestine-Israel peace process can draw their own conclusions as to it's status) and re-worded. Good now? P.S. is this the correct way to use the talk page? Quigley2 (talk) 08:16, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

@Quigley2:Yes. Thank you very much, that seems good. Have fun editing Wikipedia. Sorry for the combative welcome.Brustopher (talk) 08:18, 23 July 2015 (UTC)


Religious affiliation[edit]

To a reader blank has the meaning unknown which could imply either: (1) the information is genuinely unknown (in this case potentially an active decision to keep the matter private), or (2) that the information is generally known but missing from the page - i.e. I should go and find out about it. Surely the religious affiliation of politicians is important and position (1) is an active position. Quigley2 (talk) 16:20, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

A recent request for comment at Template talk:Infobox person#RfC: Religion infobox entries for individuals that have no religion showed a consensus for leaving the entry blank if no religion is shown. Lots of arguments for and against on that page we dont have to repeat here but the conclusion was to leave it blank. MilborneOne (talk) 16:45, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Shame I wasn't around to comment on that yet. Most of the decision makes sense. Some of it doesn't. Thanks for engaging. I will revert. Quigley2 (talk) 17:01, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

'Self made' plug[edit]

I have been reverted by Ebonelm for editing-down a statement about Kendall’s father, that he ‘left school at sixteen years old, and worked his way up to become a senior Bank of England official’. I felt it would be more encyclopaedic to put ‘Her father was a senior Bank of England official’.

It is normal to quote the father’s occupation. But there is nothing notable about leaving school at sixteen. And to become a senior official, he would naturally have to ‘work his way up’, so there is nothing notable about that either. Valetude (talk) 10:25, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Agree although it is not unusual to mention the father/parents occupation the rest is not really needed. The statement "Both of her parents are now active supporters of the Labour Party." seems to jar as well I am not sure that is relevant. MilborneOne (talk) 14:19, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
