Let's be honest, when it comes to politicians (both here and across the pond), few possess the same charm and charisma as Barack Obama.

And while it's hard to emulate Barack's aura, the vast majority of politicians have, at the very least, something which helps them stand out from the crowd… right?

And in the case of former Labour leader, Ed Miliband, it's his uncanny ability to personify the common cold.

Resigned to little more than a stock image at the weekend, poor ol' Ed saw his head plastered across an American news station who decided to use his image – along with a variety of other stock images – to highlight the perils associated with flu season.

And Twitter is unsurprisingly having a field day.
