Another stock photo blunder has emerged after the Tories used a picture of a foreign family — understood either to be Danish or Australian — to convey their notion of a “hardworking family”. A website headline promoting a freeze in UK fuel duty is illustrated with a picture of an American young man in a left-hand drive car.
It seems this young fellow is as industrious as his hardworking Tory family counterparts, being seen here doing a spot of Cypress tree planting:
Perhaps he is worrying about fuel tax, he can also be seen here striking a brooding pose.
In future, perhaps CCHQ will stick to using stock photography which isn’t already ubiquitous and/or clearly foreign.
British jobs for British photographers!
