Motivation[edit]

This database covers UK political figures - defined broadly as anyone who's stood for election at local up to national level in the past few years - plus metadata about them and their careers. Usefully, it contains some things we don't model, such as failed attempts at getting elected. We will not want to include most of their people, as we don't usually include very local politicians, but for the (at a guess) 1000-1500 people that we do have items for, it will be a useful link.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support it seems an "useful enough" website. It provides value with regard to UK politics. It would be nice them having a more permissive license than CC BY-SA 3.0 but... nobody is perfect. strakhov (talk) 01:19, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
