It's all in the picture

Due to a very heavy workload I will be covering for Cerrie this week.

Oscar Wilde's A Picture of Dorian Grey shocked a society when it was first published in 1890 as the lead story in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine. The magazine itself censored over 500 words from the original because they were deemed to be too much. Though most of the outrage was because the scenes of the debauchery depicted acted more like a mirror to the higher order and served as confirmation of actions to those living in the less fortunate world. 

In 1891 Wilde removed some of the more controversial passages, added a couple of chapters and did some major rewrites to create the book form that is so well known today.

What most people don't realise about A Picture of Dorian Grey is how much of it is based on reality. Not all the sordid frightfulness, we all know what the other half get up to in the quiet of their own Buckingham Palace. It's the painting, the picture, the wearer of the sins that is real.

Yes I know it sounds too amazing to be true however, I have located the pictures held in the attics of some well known politicians and when you see them you will understand how these people maintain such a normal looking face with all the wrong they do.

First up is Dep. Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

Then the main man himself, David Cameron 

But the most compelling evidence that pictures are are being kept to hide the effects of sins from an evil doing person is this one of Margaret Thatcher.
It was removed from her attic 1 week before she passed. As you can see, there was a lot of sin to catch up with.

Why is there a picture of my mum on here?

And shouldn't the lips on Nick Clegg be a darker shade of brown?

Great post ;-)
