Composite UK politicians

Shardcore sez, "I've built some generative politicians, they're nearly as hateful as the real thing... Their faces, and the words they speak are a blend of David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband. The text is generated from utterences made by the three Party Leaders in the House of Commons, harvested from Hansard via the wonderful API. As our politicians become interchangeable puppets of spin, one can imagine a near future where they are replaced by generative robot systems. Would anyone notice the difference?"

On the tragic news from Afghanistan, that the posh boys have ordered him off the estate today, As Deputy Prime Minister.

  1. Reading the phrase, “As our politicians become interchangeable puppets of spin…” my first thought was that I wish they’d bring Spitting Image back.

    I realize, though, that the biggest impediment to doing so is that reality already seems to have gone beyond satire.
