What does a Christmas card say about a politician?

Here's a little activity inspired by a BBC news article on the Christmas cards sent by the major political leaders in the UK. As I read the story it struck me that the individual images of the cards said so much about my expectations of the individual leaders. I wondered would it be so obvious if you turned the activity round, displayed a part of the image and asked students to work out who had sent each card?

Give it a go - a nice way to round off the class before a well-deserved yuletide break!
