To my knowledge there are now three members of the Calderdale Liberal Democrats Policy Working Group with voting rights in the Hugos. Now the words "Calderdale Liberal Democrats Policy Working Group" might not convey just how SJWy we are, so I'm going to lay it out for you.

We are members of a British political party that openly champions social justice*.
We are ACTIVE members of that political party.
We are such active members that we debate policy and submit motions & amendments to party conference, thereby to make party policy EVEN MORE SJWy than it already is.
We have been pretty successful in making party policy even more SJWy than it already is on a number of occasions.

Now the name of our party is the Liberal Democrats. This means that yes, we are liberals. We are also very committed to democracy (we're putting huge amounts of effort into the election campaign here at the moment). That means we take voting very seriously, and like doing it in as informed a way as possible. So all your sad/rabid nominations will be being read/watched and scrutinised. And we will vote according to what we think is best.

Now here's the bit that'll really blow your mind: Calderdale is only one of hundreds of local parties within the lib dems. I never met a local party within the lib dems that wasn't stuffed full of scifi geeks. And I know for a damn straight fact that our local party isn't the only one with Hugo voters in it.

As the very wise (black LGBT+) lady once said: "YES it's fucking political: EVERYTHING'S political".



*yes, I know, UK folks, we haven't been as great at that as we could have been in coalition, but we've tried.
