Is it OK to talk politics at work?

There are still those who think it improper or unprofessional to discuss politics (other than as it relates directly to the organisation’s policy) when at work.

Do you agree with this position? And why (or why not)? Is politics outside work acceptable?

Does avoiding conversations about politics enhance the workplace environment; or does being open about this theme when at work make for better understandings and relations?
