    I know in politics you have to use up to date examples but does that mean like last election or now itself

    I think it really depends on what topic you're talking about. So, for example, if you're talking about political parties and their policies, you'd probably want to look at the party manifesto from the last election. If you're talking about something like the constitution then anything from 1997 onwards is relevant as there has been limited constitutional activity ( I think the most recent change is the English Votes for English Laws addressing the West Lothian question). Otherwise, as a general guideline I think they say that anything within the last 5 years is great, but you can still use examples from up to 10 years ago, depending on the question. Hope this helps
