SDLP short on women and slogans


On International Women’s Day the SDLP visited my house canvassing their four male candidates for the forthcoming Assembly Election.  It wasn’t lost on the women in the house that the SDLP have abandoned women on their ticket.

I then noticed that the slogan on their banner was very similar to the one Sinn Féin used recently in the Southern election, ‘There has to be A Better Way’. And ‘We Deliver for Derry’ is a rehash of the Sinn Féin Westminster election slogan ‘Delivering for Derry’.

 It seems that not only are the SDLP devoid of women candidates they are devoid of new ideas as well.
