Lee Cowen

Welcome to the inaugural Brian Devlin ‘knock up a friend’ (but not in that way) invitational trophy.

As we move into the last week, I’m going to focus this final blog on Election Day and the ways in which Labour members can get involved in the last big push. Moreover, I’m going to introduce a wild new idea this year for Election Day, the ingenuity of which may startle members of a more fragile disposition.

A moment of clarification is necessary before I get to this week’s blog content. A Facebook canvassing conversation in our Labour group turned to the topic of ‘doing the board’ and I mentioned that being good at the board was really important as ‘Jon Roser proved last night’. An unfortunate autospell error on the part of my phone changed ‘proved’ to ‘probed’. So, in the interests of abating any impending legal action I’d like to state for the record that, to the best of my knowledge, at no time did Jon probe me or anyone else during canvassing. He was just very good on the board.

I was reminded of the Kevin Costner film ‘Field of Dreams’ the other day when we were out canvassing. It’s a film where Ray, an Iowa farmer, hears a mysterious voice one night in his cornfield whisper "If you build it, they will come.” Despite taunts of lunacy, Ray builds a baseball diamond on his land and the ghosts of great past players start emerging from the crops to play baseball.

The early numbers prove it – Labour can win around here

Lancing parish councillor Lee Cowen is standing as Labour's candidate in the Mash Barn by-election on October 5.

Labour has called this by-election to fill a vacancy caused by the previous councillor who has resigned from Adur District Council. This is a crucial time for residents of this area and it is important to have a councillor in place.
