Labour politicians[edit]

The display text for a link to Labour Party (UK) should be "Labour" or "Labour Party". The article is not about or a list of "Labour politicians". Per WP:MOSLINK, the display test should be representative of what the link is. The fact that some articles do it wrong does not mean that others should. I'd also question your assertion that "almost every other" article does it that way when you had to change so many. Either way, it is those that should change as they are wrong. As to removing "(MP)", that is exactly what we are told to do to introduce abbreviations, so please stop removing it. Also, we don't link years for no reason. linking a year to an election article is one thing, but just linking to the article about the year is unwarranted. Finally, when you do "Constituency created" and "Constituency abolished" links, please do not capitalise the second word. Neither phrase is a proper noun, so capitalising "Constituency" is dodgy enough; there is no justification for linking "created" or "abolished". -Rrius (talk) 01:50, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Philip Hollobone[edit]

Yes, of course I will[edit]

Yes I will assist you in correcting this for all MPs.

Not the Honourable[edit]

Please stop adding "The Honourable" as a prefix to the name of MPs.

That honorific is only used in the chamber of the House of Commons in the course of debates, and not otherwise. See The_Honourable#United_Kingdom and User_talk:BrownHairedGirl#Honourable_in_MP.27s_title.3F.3F.3F.3F.3F. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 18:34, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Election dates[edit]

Please don't replace an accurate date with an incorrect one, as you did in this edit. An MP ceases to be an MP when Parliament is dissolved, not on the day when votes are cast for her or his successor.

Also, please don't unlink election dates, as you did here. The link is directly relevant to the significance of the date. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 01:46, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
