Propose removing this template from all connected politicians[edit]

I find that this template is vast overkill being linked to so many politicians. It makes a "what links here" a right nuisance, and over represents links and importance of individuals by bloated link count. There are so many linked to each politicians that only have a connection through sitting in a parliament. Further I cannot see the benefit in such a template to be presented with more embedded collapsed templates. I could understand that you might put other members from the same country but this existing template is a beast, and I would like to see it be removed. The same information is presented on a link from the template, so that page could be linked to from each page. It doesn't appear to be done for any main nation's parliament. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:09, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

I haven't heard any dissent to my suggestion that we remove this template from articles. Is there issues, or alternate proposals? — billinghurst sDrewth 23:27, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
