Strange hands afoot? It seems that some members of the SDLP did have a role in helping the McCartney sisters get to America. A travel agency which is part owned by the party’s deputy leader Alisdair McDonnell made the arrangements whilst another unnamed party member allegedly acted as an ad PR for them in Washington. Something that they may now consider not to have been a very smart move.
