Exhibit A, a photo about a local unsafe road, featuring Labour MP Bill Esterson and Labour councillor Peter Macguire:
Exhibit B, a photo featuring a third man:
The man in the middle in that second photo is Labour councillor, Steve McGinnity.
It’s obvious that one of two things have happened here.
Either, Bill Esterson (and Cllr Peter Macguire – far right) managed to turn up exactly in the same place a year later, wearing exactly the same clothes, making exactly the same pose, not mentioning that light seems to bend around Bill on to Steve McGinnity.
More likely, just like a Labour politician before him, Bill has put himself at the heart of a photoshop scandal.
That’s a reference to former Labour MP James Purnell, he of the photoshopping incident a few years back.
As the Birkdale Focus site points out, perhaps Mo Farrah was also there:
Mind you, any professional photoshopper would have remembered to add someone not once, but twice.
