The General Election has proved that Labour have now successfully completed stage one of our campaign to present a credible and popular strategy for government. Our thanks go out to the many hard working volunteers in the Party both here in Arundel and South Downs as elsewhere. This, together with a new dynamism and enthusiasm in the Party led to new levels of motivation not seen for a long time, and it is now acknowledged that this was down to the inspiring leadership of JEREMY CORBYN. The campaign was a great success although it did not lead to government this time round. It is said that ‘We won though we lost.’
Young people are the key to a new approach to politics, as it is their future that is at stake. It is also a sign that the ‘mainstream convention’ is out of date and needs to listen. Whilst the mainstream media missed the signs, a Jeremy Corbyn led Labour Party were able to connect with the heart of the country, who spoke emphatically against Tory austerity and a free hand on leaving the EU.
Now we must move on to stage two, namely;
BROAD APPEAL: To nurture our success and broaden our appeal.
UNITY: To embrace unity in the Party and in the country.
COMPROMISE To consider alternative policy options whilst remaining true to our values as Labour Party members.
MANIFESTO: To stress the role of the Manifesto in declaring policy based on the sum of collegiate decisions, not individual preferences.
LEADERSHIP: Local leadership candidates and MP’s are the ‘First among Equals.’ It follows that although different points of view may emerge, it is the consensual view based on consultation that must prevail. It is evident that Jeremy Corbyn adopted this policy, winning others to his side as he did so. Contrast this with the Presidential Pomp of Teresa May and the Dictatorial Donald Trump.
Be assured that Jeremy Corbyn will be our next elected PM if we all get behind him and vote him into Downing Street with a smile. With that will come a genuine new approach to government and a new hope for the future and the young, who are, after all, the future of our country.

A vote for Caroline Fife, our Labour candidate for Arundel & South Downs, on June 8th is a vote to benefit the many rather than the few. The recent TV debates highlight the point perfectly.
Following the Leadership Special TV debates hosted by Channel 4 / Sky and BBC respectively, Jeremy Corbyn for the second time in less than a week looked assured and relaxed, providing compelling evidence that he and Labour have the answers to the challenges that face our country, whilst May looked weak, wobbly and evasive.
Jeremy Corbyn gave straight, honest answers to the audience. He spoke clearly, openly and passionately as he has done throughout the campaign, arguing the case for policies that benefit the majority of people, rather than the few. Jeremy showed us that he has the policies and character to win the next election.
In contrast, Theresa May dodged crucial questions, proving she has no answers to the challenges facing Britain. Furthermore, that vague promises from the leader of a government that have reneged on a myriad of promises whilst in power, Bedroom tax, Schools funding, Child poverty and the ever increasing need for Food banks, not to speak of the NHS, simply cannot be trusted.
It showed the clear choice on offer in this election: Labour's plan to transform Britain for the majority of citizens, and a Conservative Party that has held people back and puts the wealthy first.
That is why it is crucial to go out and vote for Caroline Fife, our Labour candidate on June 8th.
