Notwithstanding reports in the mainstream media, it appears that this is not a by-election.

Instead, it appears that it is still part of the general election, albeit delayed.

  • Also I'd be tempted to change the headline to "Staffordshire South 2005 election postponed", but I'm not going to be bold here, because as a newbie I'm not confident in just assuming that meta stuff like this is done in the same way as on Wikipedia... Roybadami 23:57, 2 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Ok, so I read the help. That was easy -- there was no automatic move function in the wiki last time I did this on Wikipedia... Roybadami 00:07, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
  • If you can cite verifiable and reputable sources that contradict the BBC, and combine their analyses into this article, then all the better. Being more than just an echo of another news service is exactly what Wikinews wants to be. If there's a discussion on a Usenet newsgroup, go to the sources that the participants have cited. If they haven't cited sources, then ask them what their sources for their assertions are. Uncle G 01:15, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
