Welsh UKIP’s Hunky Firemen Actually Come From Spain

ukip wales FIREFIGHTERS

UKIP’s Welsh manifesto discusses the importance of combining ambulance and fire services to “give fire professionals an important role during otherwise quiet periods”. Well, Welsh fireman certainly don’t spend their “quiet periods” posing for photos for UKIP manifestos – the uniformed hunks aren’t Welsh. They aren’t even British. Indeed, the original stock image of “Portrait Of Confident Firefighters Standing Against Truck” features models from Spain posing in front of Spanish fire engines, handily emblazoned with “Bomberos” in bright orange on their bonnets.

The manifesto also boasts a photograph of an American search and rescue team on the previous page. The word “Sheriff” on the back-plate in the stock image has been removed:
