I just saw Michael Mates on Newsnight (Friday 26th) and, on reading his web site, was struck mostly by the difference in appearance between his photograph on the web site, and his appearance on Newsnight. Now, he was born in 1934 but only elected in 1974, and the web site was registeredin 2005, so I don't necessarily think the ravages of time necessarily explain the difference.

Is there a case of a photoshop-disasters style survey of MPs' web site pictures? Is anyone bored enough to help? I don't claim this is remotely in the public interest, even as a "survey of honesty and transparency;" nor do I hold it above the basest tabloid journalism, but it might be an interesting project, especially as a timeline.
