I'll take Barack Obama for Prime Minister in exchange for 5 Labour Parties MPs, a player to be named later, and a top 2024 draft pick.

Don't let minor things like citizenship stand in the way! How often do we pine from politicians from abroad? Republicans had a Thatcher fetish, no doubt folks like [xenzag] are anxious for his Trumpness to become available (maybe we can get you Ivanka).

And of course one never tires of hearing "go back to the country you came from", or "If so and so gets elected, I'm moving to Canada" -- well, why move to Canada if we can instead bring young Trudeau here?

       In the UK, creating fake political trading card sets is quite a meme. Ironically, such trading decks are known as 'Top Trumps'.
