Bill Esterson MP and his photoshopped ‘drop-in’ friends are everywhere

The Daily Post’s ”  Dale Street Blues” blog is reporting a new website called ‘Bill Esterson With… ‘

The Sefton Labour MP has become the focus of a satirical blog which was prompted by a rather curious incident involving him, two councillors and Photoshop.

Some time ago, a picture of Bill and young Labour councillor Peter Maguire stood  together on a road in Formby arrived on Bill’s own website. And a few months later, in relation to another post about a different issue, the two of them were seen stood posing together with a third Labour councillor.

The Daily Post’s blogger ‘Mr Bocklebank’ says:

“Unless they had managed to stand in exactly the same spot, with the same weather, the same clothes, and exactly the same people walking past in the background, then the third councillor had clearly been added to the photo with a bit of technical wizardry. Not to mention that the light appears to bend round Bill.”

Former Blairite Minister James Purnell got himself into an awful lot of trouble when he was similarly photoshopped into a hospital event.There were even calls for him to resign because of the deception.
