The British Prime Minister just can't catch a break
Not that he really deserves one. I wrote about the ridiculously restrictive budget cuts the BBC is facing, but David Cameron's leadership has been under fire for a long time. His policies have cut benefits for people with disabilities, placed taxes on working class and elderly people, and allows banks and big businesses to go unchecked despite the fact that the UK is losing serious revenue to tax evasion (far more than benefit fraud or error). And to top it all off, he's now being quoted by a Marvel supervillain.

And those inside are told that their rights have been stripped. The line is remarkably similar to a quote attributed to Cameron. Just days after the general election, he had this to say to the National Security Council:
His comments were met with broad criticism.
While his comments were ostensibly about preventing acts of terrorism in the U.K., critics have pointed out that often his policies place restrictions on free speech. Many of his policies are eerily similar to those of Norsefire, the conservative political party controlling Britain in V for Vendetta.
Maybe he'll lean into his new identity and start wearing a cape and cackling!
His approval ratings might actually go up.
