Notability Doubtful[edit]

It is not clear from this short article or from the two sources why this former civil servant is notable, or ever was. Unless someone can show, with citations, that she is any more notable than thousands of other British bureaucrats, this should surely be deleted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.110.216.193 (talk) 10:52, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Private Secretaries in the British Civil service are notable, as are Provosts of Oriel College, Oxford and some might even consider Officers of the Order of the British Empire a form of notability/--163.1.147.64 (talk) 05:18, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Supression of criticism of Wallace is not justified[edit]

163.1.147.254's deletion of my contribution is not justified. The row over Wallace's role in the Rhodes affair was substantial enough to warrant press comment, and the highly unusual call by the chair of a Commons committee for the head of an Oxford College to consider resigning. In the context of an article on Wallace, it is a matter that should be recorded. The contributor does not say what she/he means by 'not lucid' and if the text is thought biased, the alleged bias should be explained and challenged and corrected on the facts. The College may not like such criticism - but it cannot not be suppressed for that reason.Unraed (talk) 18:19, 5 March 2016 (UTC)unraed
