The page List of British political memoirs needs work. At present it's just a long list. I'd like to arrange the authors by party allegiance. Robin S. Taylor (talk) 16:08, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

Adding Partygate to Opinion polling for the next United Kingdom general electionEdit

There is a discussion at the opinion polling article that may interest members of this Wikiproject. Thank you. — Czello 10:19, 7 June 2022 (UTC)

Council articlesEdit

A lot of district councils in England like South Hams District Council should probably be merged with South Hams etc per WP:UKDISTRICTS however there are a number of cases where a district has been combined with a settlement (around 40) and thus a separate council article should probably exist but none currently exists for 7 of them, these are:

If we decide to split Gosport and Worcester districts to Borough of Gosport and City of Worcester, England then the councils should probably not have separate articles but redirect to the district articles. Crouch, Swale (talk) 21:33, 11 June 2022 (UTC)

Prime Minister in the infobox of Opposition leaderEdit

Why are the Prime Ministers listed in the infoboxes of Opposition Leaders? The Leader of the Opposition doesn't serve under the Prime Minister. GoodDay (talk) 03:10, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

Results overkillEdit

Recent UK by-elections articles, like 2022 Wakefield by-election and 2022 Tiverton and Honiton by-election, now show the same results in four different formats. This seems unnecessary. I've started a discussion at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Elections_and_Referendums#Results_overkill and input there from this Project too would be valuable.

Leader of the Opposition's infobox contentEdit

Why is the 'prime minister' listed in the opposition leader's infobox content? The opposition leader isn't in the prime minister's cabinet. GoodDay (talk) 22:32, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
