SDLP sets out agenda for 'Britain leaving the UK'

By Jonathan Bell

Signs that the snap election has messed with the usually well-oiled party election machines continue.

While the cold - both viral and weather - have played havoc, parties' election material has also generated some confusion.

South Belfast constituents were left bemused by the SDLP's plans to work for special status for Northern Ireland in the event "of Britain leaving the UK".

While strictly speaking possible, no doubt Theresa May is focused on leaving the EU first.

A party spokesman said that such was the rush to get the leaflets out, the mistake was spotted just after they had been sent to the printers.

Sinn Fein also got caught - not that us who live in glasshouses should crow about it.

Their posters calling for "equality now" written in Irish and plastered at various locations contained a spelling error.

The party said the error was on some posters and new materials ordered with the correct spelling.
