Nominate

Self-nomination regulation: self-nominated articles (i.e. you write an article and then decide to nominate it yourself) no longer require a pee review. Pee Review is still highly recommended for newer users. Do not clog up VFH with poor quality self-nominated articles... or else.

VFH is not a discussion page. If you'd like constructive criticism for your article, please submit it to Uncyclopedia:Pee Review.

  • I'll take a closer look at some point. This shouldn't be a problem but this article will need quite huge amounts of updating after (and if) it is featured, especially if she becomes President. SirScottPat VFH NotM WotM WotY UotM 19:04, May 11, 2015 (UTC)
    As with FA Jeb Bush, the fact that the article is current implies that it will need updating, surely between now and November 2016. We let Featured Articles be "brought up-to-date" and I'll volunteer in this case. Spıke Ѧ 14:47 12-May-15

Comments
  • Author assured me at the time that "Screaming" was not a punch line the reader would have to guess but a popular nickname for Sutch. Nevertheless, it still hits me as an article named Botox-faced Nancy Pelosi would hit you. The article is well-written, but its humor wrestles with its dripping scorn. Needs an Intro; the current Intro belongs in a section "Early life." Spıke Ѧ 15:54 6-Apr-15
    Wikipedia has the "Screaming" (WP:Screaming Lord Sutch). It's how he's known, his party is a complete joke after all. I'll see what I can do about the intro. Not sure what is meant by "dripping scorn". Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:28, April 6, 2015 (UTC)
    The intro summarises his life. The first line is a parody of Wikipedia article first lines and the rest describes how well known he is and what he was famous for. What needs doing? Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:31, April 6, 2015 (UTC)
    Just realized this, and realized what you are doing, which is not merely a foray into obscure British party politics. I added a couple of links to make this clearer. Spıke Ѧ 12:26 7-Apr-15
  • Comment. Confused by the tense. Is Sutch still alive in this article? LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:25, April 18, 2015 (UTC)
    He's meant to be dead in the article. I've corrected the use of tense in the first sentence. SirScottPat VFH NotM WotM WotY UotM 19:23, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

  • I confess: I don't know what the title refers to, nor what the "historical document" referred to in the Intro is, if not the article itself. It is a fun read about old coots longing for the Good Old Days, but the above questions make me wonder whether it is yet another punch line waiting to be searched for. I'd prefer a real-world cover and not just a title with alliteration. Spıke Ѧ 23:41 18-Apr-15
    Comment. "Broken Britain" is a well known expression and the historical document is the article itself. Giving "Broken" a capital b is a bit misleading I now see: perhaps it should be moved? ~EveryOtherUsernameWasTaken(dtf?) 18:48, April 27, 2015 (UTC)
    Better to delete the word "Before"? as you have just created a redirect that assumes that this is what people will be looking for. Spıke Ѧ 18:52 27-Apr-15
    No because it takes the concept of broken Britain but is literally about before broken Britain. It wouldn't make much sense without "before". ~EveryOtherUsernameWasTaken(dtf?) 10:56, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
    I disagree. The page title doesn't have to accurately describe the treatment the author is going to give the subject; it should be the subject the reader would search for. Spıke Ѧ 12:10 28-Apr-15
    To me, calling it broken Britain would obscure the joke a little and wouldn't reflect the content of the article. The text would seem innappropriate under "Broken Britain". Also I'm going to back-track on my suggestion to use a small 'b' because there is indeed a wikipedia article that shows it capitalised. ~EveryOtherUsernameWasTaken(dtf?) 16:27, April 28, 2015 (UTC)

  1. It has a funny concept, following I have a dream with the response, "Have you sought help?" But articles "in the style of the thing they are about" have one funny concept as well. This is good writing, but descent into insanity does not make for a funny read, and the portion that would appear on our main page unfolds especially slowly. I don't get the monkeys, nor the purported explanation at the end, unless it is to say that reality is insane and the crazy man is the only accurate observer. Now my head hurts as well. Spıke Ѧ 22:05 22-Feb-15
    Despite not having got it, you explained it better than I could! "Reality is insane and the crazy man is the only accurate observer" - that's quite it. The interpretations are not very clear, but that's deliberate: in my vision, the man, who always relied on logic, becomes crazy being unable to comprehend racial discrimination. The monkeys are an incarnation of the racial prejudice, but also the only "logical" way out of this mess for the main character: if we don't treat them like humans, than they can't be humans, can they? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:12, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
    Hence, by the way, the name of the article. The main character's insane dream and Dr. King's famous one actually coincide (which becomes more obvious towards the end). Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:15, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
