...and any other matters that take our fancy
The use of photographic images to make the desired point has become commonplace recently. Photos of protests were used inappropriately recently to promote the 'people's Vote' - a political point, not a news story. Ditto with the above photo of HGVs probably taken some time ago during an 'Operation Stack'.In fact I found the image:..... https://news.sky.com/story/government-scraps-250m-alternative-to-operation-stack-11127783....'Government scraps £250m alternative to Operation Stack'.......'A £250 million lorry park off the M20 was first pitched two years ago but has been the subject of a judicial review'.....The article is dated Wednesday 15 November 2017.This Sky News article has nothing whatsoever to do with Brexit. Here is the essence of the story:.... 'Former Chancellor George Osborne unveiled the proposal for Stamford West, Kent, during 2015's Autumn Statement' ...... 'It meant that Operation Stack - a police initiative which essentially creates 3,000 parking spaces for trucks on the motorway - was deployed for more than a month. But the lorry park proposal was not without controversy, having proved unpopular with nearby residents, and in October last year was subjected to a judicial review....Photo credits are fiercely fought over. I believe that every image used by the BBC should have date and location added to photo credits.
