James Purnell gets into further trouble

You may recall the story of James Purnell and the photoshopping incident – an NHS Trust faked a photo featuring him, the Trust and he then gave differing accounts of how it happened, he then bombed out in a rather funny TV piece trying to defend his line that he didn’t know what was going to happen and wasn’t in any way to blame for the fakery and then Pink Dog got dragged into the whole saga.

Yesterday the Daily Telegraph and today the Evening Standard have unearthed more evidence, and it’s looking pretty bleak for James Purnell:

After his image was inserted into a series of faked publicity shots, James Purnell insisted it was done without his knowledge or consent.

But yesterday the Culture Secretary was left red faced after it emerged that the photos had been emailed to him in advance for his approval.

Oops.
