The BNP supporters who don’t really exist

From Newspeak comes news of a classic political photography blunder, this time carried out by the far-right BNP:

The current [BNP] leaflets feature a section titled “Why we’re all voting BNP” with photos accompanied by a bit of text, presumably this is to encourage people to think BNP voters are just like you. Unfortunately for the BNP none of these voters are real and you can prove it by using web-based reverse image searches.

This blunder has an extra twist.

Rather unfortunately for the British National Party, it looks not only as if none of the people are real supporters, but also several of the photographs are most likely of people who are not British.

Oops.

UPDATE: The Daily Telegraph has more.
