Wikipedia: Tom Pendry #9

March 30, 2008

A minute after his last fiddle, Sean is back to his pa-in-law’s page to edit again. This time he’s adding a link to back up details of Tom’s education.

Unlucky for some. Sean’s running back to Doc Glasgow because – oh know! – someone has resurrected Roy Oldham’s page yet again (page dutifully deleted by Doc). Here’s Sean’s plea:

Doc the hatchet job has appeared again under “samuel roy oldham” if i add balance it will, as always, be reverted to the hatchet job. would you intervene, yet again. thanks

Sean’s now back to fawn at his favourite Wikipedia editor Doc Glasgow with the following comments on Doc’s User Talk page:

Doc G. thanks for the advice on citations, im new to this so it may not be as complete as it should be. Some of the citations requested are contained within the article elsewhere so i deleted the reference in the article. There were a couple I couldnt include on wiki as they were detected as spam site. I’ll continue to look for the online references.

Sean’s favourite editor, Doc Glasgow, is now editing Sean’s own handiwork! Doc has requested verification of the facts Sean has placed on the page, so in deference Sean either removes the unsourced information or provides links.

Sean’s getting the hang of editing wikipedia, so he starts to flesh out his father-in-law’s page with internal & external links to other pages.

Sean’s back to daddy Pendry’s page. He removes a section which mentions a libel case Pendry won out in the 1970s when the popular ITV show Rising Damp featured the character of a Labour politician called ‘Pendry’ who was a hyprocrite, and homosexual*.

Bizarrely, Sean’s edit reveals a rather literary side to his nature when recounting Pendry’s upbringing:

Pendry was born in relatively comfortable circumstances in Broadstairs, Kent, attending school at St Augustines Abbey

*It’s outrageous that anyone should call Tom homosexual – the ‘baron’ has ‘sired’ 2 children and is a good catholic.

Some wag has restored the Roy Oldham page on Wikipedia, so Sean goes back to Doc Glasgow to complain:

::: Doc. Well its been a couple of weeks of peace and quite. Im afraid the article has been put back on again. Would you intervene. Thanks – telegramsam123. 14 March 08
