Everyone seems to be getting very excited about the “how historical figures would have looked today” thing (without wanting to spoil it for everyone, Henry VIII would look like a TV chef, Marie Antoinette would find herself on The Only Way Is Essex, Shakespeare apparently was born 400 years too early to work as a hipsterish, scooter-riding “media creative” in Hoxton, and Elizabeth I is Tilda Swinton). Anyway, despite the indifferent Photoshopping, it amused my editor, who asked for a what-if-we-turned-it-around thing in which we can see what our current political masters would have looked like as 18th-century gentlemen. (Not sure who I should do Ed Miliband as. Oliver Cromwell?)
I like to imagine that Dave has borrowed that horse off a local constable.
