Would anybody be against the addition of this image to illustrate the article? I think it would be very informative in this context, and help debunk the traditional "line" view of politics, with only "left" and "right". Comments? --HVista-epiphany.pngjimachong 01:11, 23 October 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, it's "ok", but I prefer the one that I used on my user page (and you, I think, too?). Hey, it's a wiki, run with the idea - can you make up some lies text about the whole "political compass" thing to go with it? Perhaps even mention that there are many axes of political difference? humanUser talk:Human 01:36, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
Bah... well, it's a start. --HVista-epiphany.pngjimachong 01:57, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
It's a wiki. A "start" sometimes produces great outcomes. Go for it. humanUser talk:Human 02:10, 23 October 2007 (EDT)

Politicians deaths[edit]

Could there be a list of bizarre deaths of politicians?

Drunk driving - Jorg Haider

Trains - William Husskisson (the first known death due to being hit by a train) (talk) 19:38, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Spencer Percival - shot in misapprehension of being a different politician. (talk) 18:57, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Parties and the Political Compass[edit]

We have individual articles on both of these topics (political party and Political Compass). Would anyone mind if I replace those sections here with links, maybe merging some of it into the separate articles? Röstigraben (talk) 07:00, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Gender Politics[edit]

Can someone do an article on it, with a passing reference to gender-changing fish etc. 'Category of subjects' which tends to generate weasel words and mockery from those not involved (of whatever gender). I do not have enough information on the subject cluttering up my brain to write the article. (talk) 15:34, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

... and I do not fancy 'a dose of brain warp'. (talk) 16:53, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

The difference between politicians and statespersons[edit]

Involves a Norwegian Blue parrot. (talk) 09:29, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Politicians and citizenship tests[edit]

If would-be politicians were made to sit the relevant citizenship tests for their countries before they could stand/run, how many would pass? (talk) 09:29, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
