North Down refuse SDLP and Sinn Fein reps

Interesting heads up from Jimmy. Apparently North Down Borough Council have refused Women Into Politics permission to invite members of the SDLP and Sinn Fein to one their events on council property. Something to do with them not having official representatives on the council. Perhaps our own IJP can give us a local perspective on the issue?
