Row over picture on Yes Scotland website
SNP campaign accused of ‘digital manipulation’
INTERNATIONAL actors rather than Scottish voters have been pictured on the Yes Scotland website to promote independence due to a campaign blunder.
Organisers of Yes Scotland faced embarrassment after Richard Baker – Labour MSP for North-east Scotland – said the campaign for an independent nation had used “clip-art actors from overseas”.
The Yes Scotland campaign was also accused of using “digital manipulation” software to make the actors appear to be wearing “Yes” badges.
