Conservative Candidate Distributes Flyer Urging Turnout On ‘Erection Day’

May 5, 2015 11:31 a.m.

British Conservative Party candidate James Duddridge has learned the importance of proofreading.

The Member of Parliament on Tuesday tweeted a photo of one of his campaign flyers, which contained a massive error.

“It’s Erection Day!” the leaflet read in blue, bold letters.

The flyer was one crucial letter off, meant to urge conservative voters to turn out on Election Day on May 7.

“Always have someone to proof read your leaflet,” Duddridge advised in his tweet. “This one had no imprint and mentions Erection Day.”

“Keep it up!” Duddridge added, cheekily.
