This subsection has been created in response to requests for a separate section in which people can discuss politics and related topics.
It's been a tricky to decide where to put the section. It's a completely valid topic for discussions and we should be able to discuss politics without descending into insults.
But many people have a strong disinterest in all matters political and don't want to see it in OT, a view strengthened by some of the poisonous discussions that happened around Brexit time.
So, the sub-section has been created in BCD initially, with a view to migrating it to OT if experience suggests that's a more appropriate location for it.
