David Cameron is to replace his personal photographer and film maker only weeks after controversially employing them permanently at the tax payers expense, with Computer Generated Image (CGI) specialists, ProCon.
All future representations of the prime minister will be artificially generated using top of the range special effects.
The move comes after Cameron was critical of recent images taken by photographer Andy Parsons and film maker Nicky Woodhouse, in particular those released from his time in China.
A number ten spokesman said, 'The prime minister was appalled at what he saw. One picture appeared to show him leering snottily at a barely pubescent student who had her hand in a suggestive area. Another still taken at the conclusion of a speech, seemed to capture the prime minister extending his hand in greeting into the groin of Chinese Premier, Wen Jiabao.'
'It is commendable that he took the decision to axe the two so swiftly to save the tax payer money. The subsequent engagement of ProCon ensures such diplomatic 'faux pas' will be avoided in the future.'
ProCon are based in New York and specialise in creating animated images so close to life like, the firm is credited with extending the careers of some the best known faces in Hollywood.
'We are used to working with some of the biggest players in the American film industry, but this is the first time we have been approached by a politician. '
Leader of the Opposition Ed Milliband, who was spotted shaking with indignation in the corridors of the House of Commons said, 'lets hope he has used CGI to generate the kind of money required to pay for such an exercise in vanity.'
