British citizens arrested overseas have no right to the government’s assistance or protection, even if they are tortured or held as diplomatic leverage


Hi all

I would like to include this fact somewhere within articles about the UK but I'm unsure where it should go, does anyone have any suggestions? Here is a reference:

Thanks

@John Cummings: I don't think this is news at all and it's not unique to Britons. No country has to power or duty to do anything for its citizens while they're under the jurisdiction of another state. The whole point of recognizing other states is that mutual understanding that states' powers are limited to their borders. Having a passport with "without let or hindrance" on it is not civis Romanus sum. GPinkerton (talk) 18:34, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

wp:WikiProject British television


WikiProject British Television is currently formed as a task force of WikiProject Television, Wikipedia:WikiProject Television/British television task force; previously, it was an independent wikiproject. Other similar task forces for Canadian television and American television are task forces of their respective national wikiprojects. Shouldn't WPUKTV be repatriated as a (shared? with WPTV) taskforce for WPUK? -- 65.93.183.33 (talk) 02:02, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Highlighting this article as a potential for taking to Good Article standard. There are plenty of reliable sources, some in the further reading section, lots of work needed, and it would be an interesting article I think and a valuable addition. Whizz40 (talk) 11:24, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Femicide in the UK


Hi all, in light of recent events concerning the disappearance of Sarah Everard and the list of femicides read out in Parliament and covered in the Guardian. I have drafted a new navigation box template to highlight the femicides that have taken place and the organisations and support groups that exist also. I took my cue from the Black Lives Matter template (so it could cover related pages, existing and proposed legislation, popular culture also) but I wanted to gauge your opinion on the usefulness and appropriateness of the draft template as things stand. The template is here. and there is a discussion on the template's talk page about what is best to include (or not), so those who do not wish to see it do not have to.

Robert Roberts (author) at FAC in need of reviews


Hi all, a few weeks ago I nominated Robert Roberts (author) at WP:FAC and unfortunately I've yet to have any reviews. Roberts led an interesting life; alongside teaching illiterate adults, championing Esperanto, opposing Fascism, working on a farm and writing for the BBC, he is chiefly noted for his autobiographical/historical accounts of growing up in a working-class district of Edwardian Salford. If anyone fancies taking a look at the nomination page, it's here. Thanks, —Noswall59 (talk) 07:47, 14 June 2021 (UTC).
