Should MSPs include the Lothian list MSPs, as they cover Edinburgh as well?


I've added the title Councillor to all of the names of the councillors for Edinburgh here as the links which were in place were all to other people of the same name. --Brideshead 18:47, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Article focus[edit]

I am not clear as to what the article is supposed to be about
The Edinburgh council area, which is also a city?
The City of Edinburgh Council?
Or the politics of the City Edinburgh council area (hence the info about constituencies)?
I get the feeling most of the content would be better positioned at "Politics of the City of Edinburgh council area", referenced as a "main article" in "Edinburgh"

See my comment at Talk:Edinburgh#Article focus. This article is at the correct title, and should be about the present day council area called 'City of Edinburgh' (and its council and possibly constituencies), which is not a city, and is not the same thing as Edinburgh. ::Supergolden:: 12:06, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

So what is Edinburgh? A city? If so, what sort of city? I believe its now the council area (or its representive council) which now holds the [[City status in the United Kingdom|city]] title. Perhaps by ""city"" it is [[city]] Supergolden means. Laurel Bush 14:05, 15 August 2006 (UTC).

That is exactly what I meant. Edinburgh is a city. City of Edinburgh is a council area. ::Supergolden:: 10:27, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Council area and city are one and the same thing! It is a council area because the City of Edinburgh Council represents the city, and the existence of the representative body helps to define the area as a city, in the sense of having "city status in the United Kingdom". As the title of an article. "City of Edinburgh" does not define the artcle as having focus different from "Edinburgh". "City of Edinburgh Council", or "Politics of the City of Ediburgh council area" would make a very important difference. Please see also discussion under "Talk:Aberdeen#Merge in content from Aberdeen City?". Laurel Bush 11:58, 17 August 2006 (UTC).

Move article?
The article is not about the City of Edinburgh
It is about the City of Edinburgh Council, and the politics of the council area more generally
"City of Edinburgh" should become a redirect to "Edinburgh"

I don't assume silence means agreement, but I am thinking it is about time I took some action. Laurel Bush 13:33, 22 August 2006 (UTC).

MSP list[edit]

Should MSPs include the Lothian list MSPs, as they cover Edinburgh as well?

The article does list 'additional members' elected from the region. Perhaps it should say something about party representation for the region as a whole (taking accout of constituency MSPs elected from outside Edinburgh). Laurel Bush 17:18, 30 November 2006 (UTC).

Constituencies since 1708[edit]

Edinburgh North (UK Parliament constituency) has been completely left out. Yes, it did exist before being merged into Edinburgh North & Leith. --John Muir 11:17, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
