This general election hasn't been short of mishaps, glaring gaffes and typos on campaign leaflets have been a prominent fixture.
Just a few days ago an image of Lib Dem leaflet from Cumbria which featured the phrase 'insulting every home' went viral.
We haven't seen many prominent parliamentary candidates fall foul of such an embarrassing mistake, until now.
Micheal Gove, the Tory minister and Brexiteer, seems a tad late in distributing his leaflets for Surrey Heath but one has now come to light.
A tweet by Donna Wishart, featuring Gove's leaflet announces the Tory as:
A stong local voice for Surrey Heath.
Yes, read that again:
That my friends is literally what it says on the leaflet. 'Stong.' Not strong but 'stong.'
If the Conservatives can’t even spell ‘strong’ what hope have we actually got? https://t.co/4Lnaxv0TSu — Donna Wishart - What the Redhead said (@Donna Wishart - What the Redhead said)
As Wishart pointed out:
If the Conservatives can't spell 'strong' what hope have we actually got?
To be fair I think stong is probably about right https://t.co/tayGriKYTD — ALASTAIR CAMPBELL (@ALASTAIR CAMPBELL)

We would suggest reading the Urban Dictionary definition of "stong" but it is very NSFW, so perhaps do it in your own time.
