Why do we have this? PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 14:03, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Because it's a fairly well-known progressive publication? Robert Wells (talk) 14:05, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
That's nice. but we are not an encyclopedia. How is it relevant to the mission? PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 14:08, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
It plays an important role in refuting right-wing nonsense in British public debate and is a very useful source to cite, and hence an article explaning what it is is a useful addition. Robert Wells (talk) 14:13, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
If it does that, the article should say so. Otherwise, it's really not while we're here. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 14:15, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
And now, the process of turning this into "LeftWingWiki" is finally complete... (Protip: that wasn't the kind of reason-for-existence PSaL was asking for.)--ZooGuard (talk) 14:20, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
I don't see much need for this. Bigging up stuff we like is always a temptation but it's not really our purpose. If this can RWified a la Private Eye then it'll have a chance of survival. SophieWilderModerator 14:36, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
