LABOUR mayoral hopeful David Lammy popped up at Euston this week to remind people that he has doubts about the £50 billion HS2 rail scheme. Full marks to his press team here for their admirable commitment to realism. No cropping or picture-bending, no stooges to fill the frame, Lammy’s people provided newspapers with the wide-angle photograph below, showing their streetfighting, soapboxing politician trying to catch the attention of people on the station forecourt. It’s a first for me: how often does a political campaign circulate a photo where their man is speaking to a crowd of people looking the other way, lost in sandwiches or with their iPod earphones in. It’s 10/10 for brutal honesty.
