Lib Dems caught using fake policeman in election material

The Lib Dems have been busy at the fancy dress shop again.

Lib Dem leaflet

First the Liberal Democrats included a fake nurse on one of their leaflets and now they've been caught using a fake policeman.

The photograph above shows the party's Welsh leader Kirsty Williams talking to a party worker dressed in full police uniform for the party's manifesto. It's a salutary reminder that the Lib Dems aren't afraid to resort to underhand tactics to further their cause.

But in any case, rather than bolstering the party's law and order credentials, doesn't the photo just make Williams look as if she's been nicked for her expenses?
