Where to direct[edit]

This article re-directed to British Isles, but then it was changed to British Isles naming dispute on August 22, 2011 - without a consensus for such a change. I've reverted that unilateral change & now editors must decide with direction is best. IMHO, this article should be deleted. GoodDay (talk) 23:21, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

If GoodDay you think the article should be deleted might I suggest that you start that procedure rather than reverting other people's edits. I disagree with the redirect going to BI. Someone who types in UK & Ireland is more likely to be aware of the term BI and may be looking for more information on the two countries. In fact on reflection I think a better redirect would be Republic of Ireland – United Kingdom relations. Bjmullan (talk) 10:34, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Get a consensus for any change you prefer. GoodDay (talk) 19:28, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
What about a similar dab page to Great Britain and Ireland? That way, all the possible bases can be covered. --HighKing (talk) 11:49, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Excellent idea HK. I would support that option. Bjmullan (talk) 11:59, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
I suggest it goes to RoI and UK relations. (talk) 13:35, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Other prefs aside, any objections to a dab page like the one mentioned? --HighKing (talk) 21:50, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
Don't seem to be any objections to your suggestion HK. Go for it. Bjmullan (talk) 17:44, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Done. Bjmullan (talk) 22:14, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Delete the page. You don't have topics for "France and Germany" or "Spain and Italy' etc, so why UK and Ireland unless it is something specific. Sven the Big Viking (talk) 02:46, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
