Portsmouth Lib Dems can't spell "Portsmouth"

The Lib Dems in Portsmouth have been ridiculed by locals after mis-spelling "Porstmouth" on their election leaflets.

Unlike the UKIP candidate who thought UKIP had deliberately been put at the bottom of the list on the ballot paper, the Lib Dems' literacy malfunction hasn't made the front page of the Huffington Post or Guardian. In fact, it's not even mentioned on the Huffington Post's fawning altar to the yellow party.

To be fair to the Lib Dems (it's cruel to mock the afflicted after all) they say that the Tories in Portsmouth put out leaflets with the phone number for Tamworth Borough Council instead of Portsmouth City Council. If this is representative of the attention to detail you get from the Tories and Lib Dems in Portsmouth, it's no wonder they didn't take the complaints against Mike Hancock seriously until the police got involved.
