"In 2004"[edit]

Quoth the article:

"He was the first British Muslim elected to the European Parliament in 2004."

Er, the "in 2004" is confusing in the context of "first." Should this sentence be broken up into two separate concepts -- (1) that he was elected to the European Parliament in 2004 and (2) that he was the first British Muslim elected to the European Parliament? --Jfruh (talk) 18:52, 26 November 2007 (UTC)


The text message story could be included if it were backed up by a suitable reference. As it is, it's just gossip. Biscit (talk) 15:13, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

References supplied, and the original source was party to the sackings. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:57, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, yes. I gathered as much that the original source was party to the sackings, but Wikipedia doesn't allow us to share what we know, but can't back up with news reports. (WP:OR)Biscit (talk) 16:23, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

An anon editor is arguing that this story is false. Having removed it once myself for lacking references, I can't now really go along with its removal now two good references have been added unless there is evidence that it is false as the anon editor claims. Does anyone have any evidence that it is indeed false or further corroborating evidence that it is true? - Galloglass 20:22, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Not sure what I'm supposed to do about it. I know exactly what happened because I was there, and know personally three of the people who were sacked. They were not all 'sacked by text message' although text messages were involved in the process. I can set the whole thing out in detail. It was a thorough indecent affair that ought to be on record.

This article now reads like a CV for this person, not a biography. There are far too many parts of the article that simply promote the person concerned and little now left that meets WP:BLP I'd guess that a good part of it has been copied from the MEP's website without any editing. Would someone else care to take this in hand as I can be a little heavy handed on occasion although if no one else is willing to I will do whats needed.
