Paul’s Campaign Diary

The Final Word

I’m so proud of the Labour campaign for police and crime commissioner in Sussex. Our team worked so hard and I’m just sorry I couldn’t take us over the line. We topped the poll in the areas where we need to win parliamentary seats and smashed it in Brighton and Hove.

You may know that the Tories changed the electoral system to first-past-the-post this time. If this election was fought on the same preferential system as last time, Labour would have won.

The Green candidate didn’t show up for the count or the result.

Thank you so much for your support. The last words on the campaign are these: GENERAL ELECTION NOW.
