We’re just a few days away from the General Election in the U.K., and it looks for all the world as though the result will be a hung parliament with top Tory David Cameron the leader of the majority party.

So maybe we should educate ourselves about the man behind the smug and punchable face before we let him govern us.

OK, so this is merely a spoof, and not a serious investigation into David Cameron and his leadership style. But it’s very funny and well-edited, and there is some truth in the fact that Cameron stole Tony Blair’s act.

This sketch is from Armando Iannucci’s Time Trumpet, broadcast all the way back in 2006 when Tony Blair was still Prime Minister. And it’s amazing that it’s still relevant today.

I haven’t actually got it in for Cameron, but he is the current party leader most ripe for a mocking this time around. Gordon Brown is too easy a target, and Nick Clegg seems like a decent guy. Which leaves Cameron open to abuse.
