U.K politics might not be the easiest concept to wrap your head around but mistaking a political party for a person is pretty rare, right?
Sky News Australia made this very blunder, reporting that Irish nationalist political party Sinn Féin was in fact the name of the party leader.
The mistaken identity is in fact the president of Sinn Féin, Gerry Adams.
The blooper was picked up by an Irish journalist who tweeted the mistake that has since gone viral.
I'm a Northern Ireland native journalist and can't find full time paid work, but someone at Sky News Australia thinks Sinn Fein is a person. pic.twitter.com/F2pDpYSEsR— aoife-grace moore. (@aoifegracemoore) June 16, 2017

Don't worry, I'm sure people have made the same mistake with the Tory Government -- after all, it's a name too!
