Andrew, British MPs are kind of your thing, can you help improve this? --Iustinus (disputatio) 06:37, 20 Ianuarii 2017 (UTC)

Actually I'm not sure they are. I am currently stateless: I don't have a vote in Britain or anywhere else. But I guess I do biographies of a fair few politicians :)
At a quick glance, all the major facts are mentioned in the two obituaries and there's nothing controversial. So the "citation needed" tags were not needed! Since the obituaries are main sources for the whole article, I've taken them out of the footnotes where they were dreadfully cited (no dates of publication, no authors, no names of newspapers) and put them in a bibliography with proper details. But of course that all depends on Wikipedians: current footnote 2, citing an article by Allegra Stratton, is fine. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 10:00, 20 Ianuarii 2017 (UTC)
"The Perse School". I note your find of the adjective "Persicus".[1] "Schola Persica" can be found once on the internet in the required sense, in a Czech text about Latinists with many Latin phrases cited; but the same phrase is also used in two earlier senses, so it would be good to have better confirmation. "Academia" is only rarely used by English schools I think -- more by Scottish. OK, here is "Scholae Persicae (Perse School)". That's enough confirmation, but the parentheses tell us if we didn't already know it that disambiguation will be required. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:46, 20 Ianuarii 2017 (UTC)
Excellent work, thank you. The notes were, of course, copied wholesale from the English version of the article, which was why I sloppily left the month names (as well as the word "References") in English. --Iustinus (disputatio) 17:51, 20 Ianuarii 2017 (UTC)

Nota[fontem recensere]

  1. Fons nominis desideratus, sed sicut Academia Liverpoliensis, non dubium est quin nomen Latin exstet. Nona bene academiam libellos edere nomine Lūdī Persicī sive vulgo Perse Latin School Plays. Vide hoc exempium apud Vivarium Novum.
