SCOTTISH Labour have issued a promotional video to tie in with the party’s 2015 conference - but misspelled one of the key messages in the clip.

‘Take a Fresh Look’, which was uploaded to YouTube this morning, carries a series of quotes from Kezia Dugdale ‘setting out’ the party’s values, according to the video’s description.

Towards the end of the clip, a quote from Ms Dugdale delivered during a visit to a Paisley nursery in August features.

The original quote is: “The test for everybody in Scottish politics is whether or not we secure a better future for the next generation.”

However, the video flashes up ‘for the next genertaion,” in an embarrassing gaffe for the party - especially given recent attacks by Ms Dugdale on the SNP’s education record.

Social media went to town on the error, with a number of references on Twitter to The Who’s hit single ‘My Generation’ and the predictable independence referendum ‘once in a generation’ jokes.
