Downing Street officials were ordered to round up ‘obviously sick children’ for a photo call on a hospital visit by Tony Blair during the 2001 General Election.
Labour Party general secretary Peter Watt tells how he prepared for the visit to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.
‘En route I got a call from one of the PM’s team asking if I could make sure that there were half a dozen “obviously sick” children for Tony to meet,’ he says. ‘I spent several hours scouring hospital wards for poorly looking kids ... and had them in position seconds before Tony turned up.’

"Quick, get me sick kids, i need to look good".

I really don't think this is something people should be doing, but, if the photo shoot asked for sick kids, getting kids in the 1st year of cancer and don't look too sick is completely unacceptable.

Ha, just kidding, the whole fact of taking pictures of people for publicity is wrong to me, let alone sick childeren.

This reminds me of when obama had that meeting with all of those doctors, and he had his staff hand the ones who came in dresses, or suits the white coats, so that they would actually look like doctors.
