Talk:Former Scottish Conservatives leader Annabel Goldie to stand down as MSP

Notes to reviewer


I hope you don't mind, only I've plucked certain 'common knowledge' details from Wikipedia, as I was not sure where else to get such details from. These include:

  • the numbers for Scottish Parliament MSPs and UK Parliament MPs elected in Scotland
  • the name of the electoral region Goldie represents
  • what the Smith Commission was intended for

I hope this does not cause too many problems. --Rayboy8 (talk) (contributions) 20:27, 25 June 2015 (UTC)Reply

Review of revision 3628026 [Passed]


Factual correction – Brian Monteith MSP was never a Scottish Conservative Whip in the Scottish Parliament. He was a backbencher when he resigned.

Per Bluetrot above: It appears Ryan misinterpreted Monteith "resigning the whip" as resigning a position as whip. In fairness, The Guardian contributes to the confusion by contradicting itself on whether the whip was removed from him or he resigned; this BBC article clearly states he resigned. Perhaps {{correction|date=[date]|explanation=Brian Monteith's resignation was not from a position of Conservative whip in the Scottish Parliament, which he did not hold, but from the Conservative grouping in the Scottish Parliament.}} Heavy Water (talk) 02:39, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
