  • - 108 questions

    Questions on the history of politics, political action and political debate, as well as historical political figures, heads of state etc. Also including any historical political actions and situations which may be of relevance to modern day scenarios.

    Yea I don't think we need the political adjective in there as well, it is implied by being on this site and confirmed by the excerpt. Leaving out the adjective works for other tags as well, e.g. [parties].
