The Wikipedia administrator facing questions from within Wikipedia today about whether he acted too rashly to ban a user for making edits to pages about Grant Shapps was revealed earlier by Channel 4 News to be a Lib Dem.
His Twitter page said yesterday that he is a “Liberal Democrat (to the last)”. No longer: in the last few hours it was updated to state “Ex-Liberal Democrat voter (no longer)”.
And he has now deleted his page.
He has been an active Liberal Democrat over recent years, including signing an open letter about Lord Rennard.
Shapps denies Guardian allegations that the favourable Wikipedia about him was made by someone in his office.
