Michael Spurr[edit]

  • ... that Michael Spurr, currently Chief Executive Officer of NOMS, originally joined the England and Wales prison service in 1983 to become a borstal house master?

  • Symbol question.svg 3606 characters (new article), neutral, all statements cited; I don't see any signs of a copyvio. I don't really understand the hook; which prison service are you referring to, and what do you mean by "them" (who?) being "abolished"? Everything else checks out.

  • Thanks for the review, I've modified the original hook to specify which prison service and dropped the abolished part - I think the borstal part should be catchy enough. Miyagawa (talk) 15:16, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Symbol possible vote.svg Close paraphrasing concerns. Example: "initially managing the prison population and a system for managing disruptive prisoners called the Control Review Committee. After the publication of the Learmont Report in 1995, he led a review of the management of disruptive prisoners which eventually formed the Close Supervision Centre system" vs "he took up a post managing prisoner population and the Control Review Committee, a system for managing disruptive prisoners, and in the wake of the Learmont Report in 1995...he led a review of the management of disruptive prisoners that resulted in the creation of the Close Supervision Centre system."

I've cut it down to just "He then moved into HQ operations, managing the prison population and a system for managing disruptive prisoners." as I'm not it's possible to say all the rest without using those terms. Miyagawa (talk) 21:32, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

On second thoughts, closing my own nomination. It's not a good hook anyway. Miyagawa (talk) 13:12, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
