"The idea was politically explosive."
I wonder what 'politically explosive' means.

Thank you.

Politically Explosive literally means that it could cause resignations of politicians, change an election result or something else dramatic in a political sense.

Here's a quick test. Would a corrupt ruler, dictator, or dishonest politician like to censor the information?

If so, that is politically explosive!
