It’s politics. Most articles I see are slanted against Madigan, saying “he” and are generally highly sarcastic in tone.
I found a neutral report that didn’t slander either side. Now I’ll be looking for a supportive article or two, if I can find.
It’s how I research political things, especially in areas I know little about (such as Labour Party politics).
I can see Madigan’s appeal: recent victory against school for trans, highly publicized. So that’s a leg up on the incumbent.
Now I need to look into Anne Ruzylo, who previously held the seat.
t’s an interesting battle : it was between Anne Ruzylo and Lily Madigan for the chair of women’s officer. Heated back and forth mudslinging at the kind of level you see in politics.
My conclusion is that it was a battle intersecting trans, the future of feminism and ageism (both ways).
The generational battle definitely plays a part in this.
