Description

Leaflet 'SOS - Switch Off Sunningdale.' A leaflet produced by the United Ulster Unionist Council for the February 1974 UK General Election. In Britain the main issue was one of ‘who governs Britain’- politicians or trade unions, however, in Northern Ireland the election was primarily seen as a referendum on the Sunningdale Agreement, power-sharing executive and the Council of Ireland. This item is also probably referring to the UK government’s Switch Off Something campaign from late 1973 aimed at saving electricity.
