Welsh Lib Dem Wonderbra shock horror

Q: When is an ‘ordinary nurse’ not an ordinary nurse?

A: When her photo appears on the Welsh Liberal Democrats’ website.

According to Wales Online, a photo on the Welsh party’s website purporting to depict an “ordinary worker” in a nurse’s uniform is in fact a stock photo of an underwear model called Louise Cole, who once appeared in adverts for Wonderbra. Not only that, but Ms Cole stood against the Liberal Democrats in the Henley by-election, representing the Miss Great Britain Party.

Wales Online also reports that this is not the first time a fake nurse has appeared in publicity for the Welsh party.

Mind you, Jonathan Morgan, Tory AM for Cardiff North, is going a bit far when he claims, “Lloyd George would be spinning in his grave”. It is more likely that the old goat would have heartily approved.


  1. It is a stock Federal party photo. Honestly, you let them supply you with campaigning material and this is what happens.

  2. So everyone is using the same photo. Is this what they mean by "on message, in volume"?
