SDP Party Election Broadcast

The first national Party Election Broadcast for the Social Democratic Party (SDP) since the 1980s will be broadcast later today, Tuesday 18th June, on BBC1 (10:50pm) and ITV (10:40pm).

Its major theme is finding a voice for the millions of people who find themselves politically homeless. It will highlight some common aspirations of voters including affordable housing, decent publicly run utilities and a secure national border.

Commenting on the election broadcast, the SDP’s leader William Clouston said:

“So many fellow citizens feel ignored and patronised by the establishment political class.  We wanted to produce a film which explored this and which had a little humour in it.

The big message is that there is a party which shares the sensible majority public view on things like immigration and housing – it’s the SDP. 

Basically, that’s why the SDP is here – to give the public something decent to vote for.”

After its initial airing, the SDP’s election broadcast will be available for playback on BBC, ITV and other broadcasters.

Notes to Editors:

The SDP is a patriotic, economically left-leaning and culturally traditional party.

The SDP has been in continuous existence since the 1980s and under its leader William Clouston since 2018 has re-entered national political life and debate.

The SDP is fielding 122 candidates in this general election, the highest number since 1987.
