This week Duncan Enright won a council byelection for Labour.
OK maybe it is only a town council byelection but this was in David Cameron’s back yard and he won convincingly with 66% of the vote – four times as many votes as the second-placed Liberal Democrat.
If that can happen in Witney then maybe the idea of Labour winning a council seat somewhere in Horsham and getting the chance to hold Horsham council to account is not so unlikely as everybody has said.
The result in Witney shows that it can happen with a lot of hard work and a good candidate. If you would like to help Horsham party this year get in touch. There will always be doors to knock on, leaflets to deliver, and posters to display for anybody who wants to lend a hand.
We already have some excellent candidates for the May elections, but they can’t do it without all of our help.
