What did you do in the 40s, Mr Purnell?

The Voice had a good chuckle earlier at this story about an NHS Trust faking a photograph so that Culture Secretary James Purnell could appear with three other MPs after he turned up late for a photo op visit.

Mr Purnell has made it clear it wasn’t his fault:

“I didn’t think a faked photo would be produced and indeed I didn’t see this photo before it went out and if I had done it wouldn’t have agreed to it.”

We believe you, James, so fulsome are you in your denial. But hunting through our image archive, we notice you may have missed another photo opportunity in the past. Wasn’t the founding of the NHS worth being on time for?
