Remove Mark Reckless from current MPs. Add the UK Independence Party leadership election, 2015 to the internal elections. '''tAD''' (talk) 22:01, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. During this time of instability and change, I'm pretty sure that any requests for changes here will require some kind of source to back up that these changes are accurate. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 22:08, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
@Technical 13: It's a navbox, and navboxes don't need sources (reliable or otherwise): what they need are links to articles that are related to the group in which they are listed. UK Independence Party leadership election, 2015 is clearly UKIP related, and is also an internal election, and so its addition to the "Internal elections" group is warranted. Mark Reckless, whilst UKIP related, can no longer justifiably be listed under "House of Commons (MPs)" because he lost his seat at the recent general election. This fact is mentioned at Mark Reckless, but you can also check the article for the constituency that he represented, Rochester and Strood (UK Parliament constituency). As for reliable sources, try the BBC. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:52, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Redrose64, all I was asking for was something to WP:VERIFY that Mark Reckless had indeed lost his seat and I would have completed the request. I had it watchlisted awaiting a reply. I'm a silly American of course and as such I don't get BBC with my rabbit ears, so I have no idea what is happening in an election on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Anyways, I'm glad that someone who could verify it has made the change. Happy editing! — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 11:58, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
