  2. Symbol for vote For. Good enough to run. But "Silly Walks" is a joke stolen from Monty Python with little value added, and the winks to the group don't make it all right. Spıke Ѧ 23:38 17-Aug-13

  • Comment. I think this article suffers from several problems or weaknesses. The use of images/formatting is underwealming IMO, there seems to be a lack of cohesion/concept between the sections. I think the individual jokes are humerous but that reworking the text a little would higly strengthen the humour. There are also several references that I think a non British reader would understand. Not that you have to pander to all readers but it might help to qualify a few of those references. There are also some phrases that I simply don't get either the meaning of or why its funny. Examples include: "what the point of these civil servants...ignore them". The Ministry budget paragraph. etc. I found the Pessimism section funny and very well written. Also the Chancellor of the Checkers made me laugh out loud.. ShabiDOO 22:13, August 17, 2013 (UTC)
    I've minced words in about half of the sections, transforming the example you gave; it wasn't cryptic to non-Brits but just cryptic. Writers are reminded that we are explicitly trans-Atlantic; there is no problem featuring articles describing one country (and using its dialect and predominant humor style) but you have to throw a sop to other readers around the world, such as enough background information to help them get the joke. This article doesn't really fail to do that. Spıke Ѧ 00:09 18-Aug-13
    Thanks for the changes to it Spike. (and for the vote in confidence) Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:28, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
  • I know our Pee Review is very slow but I was planning to review this work. And even began reading a Wikipedia article about the UK Government departments. Can I still review it? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:15, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
    Sure. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:16, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
