    It's Gordon Davies – it says! If you right-click and choose 'save image as'. Ex Fulham and Wales striker according to Google searches…

    yeah, it was a bit daft of me to label the pic as Gordon Davies when I saved it, but there is a method to my madness when a stray Fulham fan seeking solace in their glorious past finds the Party website via a Gordon Davies google search.  Of course, I'm sure it was a deliberate decision on the part of the then Editorial Committee to use a Fulham player on the cover of the Standard. Entryists pushing their Fulham agenda on the rest of the working class. It could have been worse. They could have used a pic of Chelsea's Tommy Langley.
