SDLP’s ‘Stop Speeding’ campaigner caught, erm, speeding…

A bizarre week for nationalist politicians and road safety issues. If what Slugger hears turns out to be true, then the SDLP’s all island Stop Speeding (link courtesy of SuperSoupy) campaign may have gotten off with a fairly bizarre footnote this morning. We have an unconfirmed report that Alex Attwood, the SDLP’s man on the Policing Board, was caught speeding outside, of all places, PSNI headquarters at Knock, in East Belfast on the very day the campaign was supposed to start. Some mistake, surely? We hope for Alex’s sake it’s ours!!
