I am not very familiar with the current happenings with Brexit or Prime Minister David Cameron, however I came across this photo and it piqued my interest.

The photo shows conservatives for "Kent" and conservatives for "Sussex", although the individuals are the same in both pics and simply moved around for the 2nd photo op.

Caption for the picture was

"Cameron EU Tories put their 'support' on a bus and give them different banners"

Now, as I mentioned I'm not informed as to the context of this or even many details about the Brexit or what "Tories" even are (I understand they are some sort of political affiliation).

I want to learn more and get some feedback as to what's going on in this picture.

I saw this on Twitter and there was a copy of related expenses showing no transport costs. I don't know what it was getting at though.

Perhaps they were trying to show that this political presentation for this is totally staged and since they are posing for a picture in front of a bus, it may appear (or they may be trying to convince people) that they are traveling around from city to city to protest/recruit and are really not even using the bus or driving anywhere. Just a thought.

I would hazzard a guess a a photo shoot for publicity purposes .....

"A picture paints a thousand words"? --------

The background looks the same from different angles and i dare say there

will be other pictures around with different towns and cities named, so

that those who go into polling booths undecided will get flash backs and

vote thinking of all those people in all those towns/cities surely cant be

wrong? will put their X on *in*

I dont suppose there will be too many scrutinising the faces in the crowd!

Dodgy Dave living up to his name and reputation.

I agree that it does look like they are in the same place (as the pavement is identical) and they have just moved positions and changed banners.

I would be surprised if politicians the world over don't do this. Why is it so shocking?

Anyway, Kent and Sussex are quite close, so chances are these people could have come from both counties. The only thing missing is a Surrey banner.

Whilst there are about 12 individuals recognised in each picture, there about another 12 who don't show up in each picture. Which seems odd. Also in the first picture why is there a set of wheels showing under the banner. It's like a wheelchair but nobody in it. Weird

No, it is just a walker used by the woman with white tshirt and white hair.

Good observation with the wheels - in the 2nd picture it looks like there is actually a child with dark hair (perhaps an adult but looks like a child) in a wheelchair. Did they tell the kid to "duck" for the first picture so all we see are the wheels? Seems odd.. lol
