You're right, this is fun! And I, too, am clueless on British politics, so here's the facts I found.

The first Google hit is for this guy, who is apparently an Australian musician. Why the confusing? Because there are a lot of David Campbells of note, as well as a few Dave Campbells. Then I realized it was all a bit misleading, as I was really looking for David Cameron, the leader of the Conservative Party and Leader of the Opposition in the United Kingdom. That wiki page has plenty, so I'll leave it at that.

Except to note his image was heavily "airbrished" by some magical brush of air which thins, bronzes and sculpts one's face.

Also, here are more spoof posters, but with more photo editing. And here's the original poster.
