Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Moved to Michael Barber (educationist), I trust the earlier editors who supported the honorific-less title would not find issue with this option as it preserves the dab. Even the opposer's argument favors this outcome. As for merging Michael Barber with Mike Barber, I will let @Thryduulf: follow-up on that. ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  19:42, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Out of date methinks[edit]

Hey Sarah - as it happens I've got a bunch of sources & research I pulled together in making a film about the subject. If any of it would be of use here I'd be happy to help. See here : http://followersoftheapocalyp.se/opened13 for some links. I'm a little nervous about diving in given WP:BLP and such...

No criticism?[edit]

A little hagiographic in tone, doesn't mention some well-regarded criticism of Pakistan work for example? http://blogs.worldbank.org/developmenttalk/data-guide-sir-michael-barber-s-good-news-pakistan Mithra26 (talk) 19:54, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
