Chris Huhne: An innocent explanation

Last week the Guardian's Backbencher got excited about the fact that Chris Huhne's photograph appears on the cover of Reinventing the State:
And who is the ordinary Lib Dem worker and peasant featured taking part in a demo on the front cover? Though the photo has been artily bleached, it looks a bit like Chris Huhne MP, the runner-up for Sir Ming's job last time. Were the Ming Dynasty to crumble soon, he might still be in with a shout.
A party insider assures me that there is an Innocent explanation. The designer, a political innocent, chose the photograph because he liked it. He had no idea of who the people it shows were.

Ah, but he would say that, wouldn't he?

An explanation that might have carried more weight if David Howarth had not been in charge of Chris' leadership campaign...
