  • This article goes out of its way to imply the three retiring politicians are doing so rather than risk defeat in elections. All are over 55, two over 65 - the legal/"normal" retiral age in most western countries. Whilst no citation is needed for "[...] with the incumbent party's support beginning to dwindle", this should be substantiated with details from polls that can reasonably be judged to be independent. --Brian McNeil / talk 01:17, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
This was fixed by the writer and not a problem when I reviewed it. Calebrw (talk) 04:11, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I'm not so sure it was. It still smacks of politicing dressed up as news. --Brian McNeil / talk 12:42, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

How so? I don't think what you just said is in fact the case—and apparently neither does Calebrw. But if you still think there is clear problem regarding the NPOV of this article, please tell me more specifically, so that I can do my best to fix and improve it accordingly. Thanks.
