political party category


Should we really have political party category? Especially when that "stable genius" had changed his political party.

I see no reason not to acknowledge her association with that party. --Pi zero (talk) 16:01, 6 July 2018 (UTC)Reply
one day or the other, she is not going to be affiliated with the party. It is going to be a tedious, unrealistic task in the long run. So I am asking for different views. That's it.

I think that the future case that may not even happen is not a strong basis for removing her from the category, when she is indisputably a notable figure within the Tories as of now. --Avertis (talk) 14:18, 28 November 2018 (UTC)Reply
Iirc, we've been keeping the team categories on football players after they move to another team, so they're listed under all the teams they have played under since we've been writing about them; this seems a similar situation. --Pi zero (talk) 14:24, 28 November 2018 (UTC)Reply
No, we are not doing it. And to the best of my knowledge, there is no player who is listed in two football clubs. In the rarest of luck, if that is the case, it is laughably the worst possible way to handle it. Why not list all the political parties Trump had been with? (talk) 14:35, 28 November 2018 (UTC)Reply
Afaics, we didn't have a category for Donald Trump while he was in any other party (and for that matter, if we had we might not have bothered to give it a political-party cat since our early mentions of him appear to be non-political). I don't think anyone's proposing to retroactively categorize people under past affiliations. As for football players, I don't claim to be sure; I'd have to hunt around to see what we've done. --Pi zero (talk) 14:48, 28 November 2018 (UTC)Reply

We update the club category as soon as possible. And remove it once the player has left the club or retired. (talk) 19:24, 28 November 2018 (UTC)Reply

One thing, she is the leader of the party, not just an MP. It is unlikely she will literally wake up tomorrow and decide 'I think I will just go to another party today!', in my opinion at least, Qwerty number1 (talk) 17:41, 21 December 2018 (UTC).Reply

Removing flag. Football similes aside, it can be very useful to track news by political party. If individuals switch parties, they can be included in both categories. This is not a complicated matter. --SVTCobra 01:10, 27 February 2019 (UTC)Reply
