|A fact from The Hunt for Tony Blair appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 11 September 2011 (check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
I've just completed the cast list as shown at the start of the programme. One thing I noticed is that Harry Enfield is listed as playing "Alistair" (sic - no quotes). This is obviously Alastair Campbell, but is both misspelled and missing the surname. I've left the article as per the filmed cast list.
Anyone any idea why this is the case?
I would like to propose award nominations be added to this page - it was nominated for a BAFTA (Best Comedy Programme 2012) and a Comedy Award (Best Comedy Drama 2011). I have a conflict of interest with this article therefore I would like to check this is ok to add rather than go ahead and add it myself. This is accurate and verifiable and is a nice addition to the article.
Sorry - trying to add links to support the above request!

- It would be best to establish notability of these nominations; were they covered in newspapers / on (unassociated) TV/radio at the time, or similar? Pinkbeast (talk) 12:53, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
I tried to edit a line in the article but it has been undone citing COI. I understand this but I have emails from another Wikipedia editor who recommended that I make that change myself. Can you recommend what I should do here? I can forward on emails and the reasons for this request? Snowdrop4 (talk) 12:49, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
- They should probably have discussed it on the talk page. The cited reviews are clearly mixed and I see no reason to change that wording. Pinkbeast (talk) 12:52, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
I have two more links to support the proposed change to the article, so hopefully that will justify the edit.

- Thank you. The Times article is behind a paywall, so I can't check it, but the Independent article adds support to your point of view. Pinkbeast (talk) 15:34, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
- Please do not misuse the minor edit facility. Edits should only be marked as minor when they are clearly and unequivocally uncontroversial. For example, fixing your typo in "nitrous" is a minor edit. Pinkbeast (talk) 15:43, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
