Ion-list button takes 2 clicks to fire

Is it just me but when using the button inside a list it is taking two clicks to work.

                   <ion-slide >
                              <button ion-item *ngFor="let item of menuslides;" (click)="mainmenu(item)">
                                   <ion-avatar item-start>
                                        <img [src]="'assets/images/menu/' + item.img + '.png'" >

it is just you I guess

Really wish it was just me - but it is taking two clicks to fire!

OK it might be caused by the first click being for clicking onto the list and the seconds click being on clicking the button.
