Ahistorical nonsense by David Day[edit]

from http://www.thesydneyinstitute.com.au/wanted-dead-or-alive-confirmed-deductions-in-biographies/ an article about bollocks in biographies:

Day has made a lot of false deductions in his career. In Menzies & Churchill at War (1986)), Day maintained that there was a serious move in 1941 for Australian prime minister Robert Menzies to replace Winston Churchill as leader of Britain. Yet Day cannot provide the name of one Churchill biographer or one historian of Britain in the 20th Century who holds this view.

The WP:OR (unfounded claims) and WP:RS (reliable sources) policies appear to be contravened in this article by anecdotal defense of Day's very strong but unsupported claims. ChrisPer (talk) 21:38, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Claims of Nazi sympathy are politically-motivated hindsight[edit]

And should be removed. ChrisPer (talk) 23:55, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

good point--I did so and referenced a RS. Rjensen (talk) 00:51, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

But some are still there. Probably the whole content should be removed and replaced with text based on John Howard's book.--Jack Upland (talk) 12:22, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

What sentence do you challenge? Rjensen (talk) 12:25, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
I'm sure John Howard said it best, whatever he said.--Jack Upland (talk) 13:08, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
The Howard book starts in 1949 and only says that Menzies strongly supported the appeasement of Hitler. Rjensen (talk) 13:19, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
