Look, I didn’t want to start another day still dwelling on The Poster, I really didn’t. But this is a great new spin — a Labour supporter (who are you, mystery genius? Make yourself known!) sent this brilliant remodelling of the poster to John Prescott’s Go Fourth campaign.

Ah, Photoshop, fickle mistress. One day she gives you cheekbones and a lustrous head of hair that could be straight out of a “Just for Men” advert, the next she’s making a mockery of not just of your beautiful face, but of your policies and, worst of all, of your £500,000 poster campaign.

Airbrushing is not always your friend, Dave.
