The party leaders' Christmas cards

The continuing influence of the Tony Blair model of political leadership can be seen nowhere more clearly than in the three party leaders' choice of Christmas card.

Following the unlovable precedent set by the Blairs - who in their pomp seemed poised to supplant the Holy Family altogether - Cameron, Miliband and Clegg have each chosen a card depicting himself and his family. Nick Clegg has chosen a drawing by his children rather than a photograph, which makes his offence greater or letter according to your taste.

The whole concept seems vainglorious to me. What is wrong with something like a tasteful print of Bonkers Hall in the snow?
