The BBC Slant

I'm not sure if you've noticed - perhaps you have far more important things to do in life than stare at websites all day - but the BBC appear to have a curious trend in the photographs of politicians of note. Whenever on picture accompanyments to stories on the BBC website you see more than the head of the politician in question, it becomes immediately clear that they are at an outrageous slant in relation to their backgrounds. Take, for example, the following picture of David Camperon:

See what I mean? Perhaps it's the photographer's idea of a joke on the political slant of a photographee. You see it all the time, especially on pictures of Cameron (as above) or of Clegg, who typically leans in the opposing direction. As the picture is of Clegg listing to the right whilst making a speech, he somehow reminds me of the O Rly owl.
