Here is the Christmas card Nick Clegg and Miriam González Durántez will be sending out this year:
The London Evening Standard explains:
Nick and Miriam Clegg’s Christmas card was hardly festive at all … until their three sons got hold of it. Brothers Antonio, Alberto and Miguel used an app on the family iPad to give the cosy image of mum and dad on the sofa a seasonal makeover. The Deputy PM was given a Santa hat and beard, and a Christmas stocking on his foot. His lawyer wife ended up with antlers and a Rudolph-like red nose. The boys even added a tree to the bare living room. The photo was taken by photography graduate James Gourley, for a project in which he followed the DPM around.
And a whole lot more appropriate than this card sent 75 years ago… festively featuring Adolf Hitler.
