Prime Minister David Cameron has come under fire after Downing Street officials seemingly Photoshopped a portrait of him – adding a poppy to his suit jacket.
In what was quickly dubbed ‘poppygate’, 10 Downing Street was forced to admit its mistake, telling reporters there had been an ‘oversight’.
Trouble began when social media users spotted that 10 Downing Street’s new Facebook profile picture of the PM was a previously published image plucked from the official Downing Street website, the key difference being that a poppy had been added – digitally.
The 10 Downing Street Facebook page was later updated with a new portrait of David Cameron, in which he is seen actually wearing a poppy on his jacket.
But not before the move was widely mocked on Twitter.
