Comment[edit]

Sorry. I nominated this article for deletion but have totally forgotten my password. This is a page about a candidate for elected office who has no other notability. There is clear precedent that candidates for office are not sufficiently notable unless there is some other claim to notability. I don't think any other claim is sufficiently asserted here - it really just seems to be a vanity page. 86.144.83.215 (talk) 00:44, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

There appeared to be copyvio from his personal website, so I have done a partial tidy up, quoting third party references. Snowman (talk) 15:26, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Promotional tone[edit]

This edit by Widget365 (talk · contribs) has some good links, but looks like it's way too promotional. Even before that edit, it was looking promotional. Tagging as {{news release}} until I get around to looking properly. --h2g2bob (talk) 23:36, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Yep, still way too promotional, not very wikified, (inline links, 'publications' are mainly individual guest columns for newspapers), poor writing and grammar. Some of the details give a distinct flavour of self-editing. I will make a start. Centrepull (talk) 05:14, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Battle for Hammersmith: Shaun Bailey, Andy Slaughter and the great Wikipedia mystery[edit]

It appears that a Shaun Bailey shill has been editing this page for propaganda purposes. --Tagishsimon (talk) 09:41, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Removal of information sourced from the guardian website[edit]

Recent edits have removed information sourced from Dave Hill's London Blog[1] on guardian.co.uk. Dave Hill is a professional journalist and as I understand it the blog is under Guardian editorial control, and so I believe is a reliable source as per Wikipedia definition: Identifying_reliable_sources. As such I believe that this information should be reinstated. Dastra (talk) 12:09, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Information pre 2006[edit]

My Generation was setup on 24th February 2006, and was selected as Conservative PPC for Hammersmith on 29th March 2007 - is there any information what Shaun did between leaving university and setting up the charity ?

Crystal[edit]

The ban on predictions of the future is being broken in a big way here. Bailey is possible future Mayor of London, we are told.
