POLITICAL manouvering, betrayal and the breakup of kingdoms. Following the EU referendum and the vote for Brexit, Great Britain and Westeros aren't looking too dissimilar - rampant nudity and incest aside. 

With tonight seeing the British screening of the season finale of Game of Thrones, we looked at the similarities between the movers and shakers of George R.R. Martin's fantasy and our sadly dragon-less reality. 

Nicola Sturgeon - Daenerys Targaryen

Ah Nicola. Queen of Scotland, Lady Regent of Caledonia, Breaker of the Union and Mother of Independence (possibly). Where Dany answered the prayers of slaves toiling under the whip of oppressive masters, Nicola finds herself petitioned by Scots looking to throw off British rule. Widely acknowledged as being the most competent leader in Britain, she also arguably enjoys the most universal appeal, much like her blonde-haired counterpart. And while she may not have dragons, she is more than capable of breathing fire herself at the despatch box.

Boris Johnson - Ser Alliser Thorne 

Alliser Thorne and his cabal fatally betrayed his brother-in-arms Jon Snow because he allowed the free movement of Wildlings through the Wall... Though Boris Johnson only killed his Tory colleague David Cameron's career, it's possible that, like Thorne, he ultimately won't profit from his actions. With the premiership now seen by many as a poison chalice for whoever takes the position and enacts Article 50 , Boris may yet find himself swinging from the political gallows.

Nigel Farage - Euron Greyjoy 

A dangerous rogue factor difficult to predict yet  with little institutional power. Loves living on an island and wants his fleet to rule the waves. 

David Cameron - Tywin Lannister

A skilled operator who ruled for years and enjoyed a life of privilege before being killed off by his own creation. Where Tywin finally met his end thanks to his own son, Cameron's political career was killed off by a referendum he birthed in an attempt to unite his party. 

Jeremy Corbyn - Rob Stark 

A man of high principle who (arguably) had leadership unexpectedly thrust upon him. Though few would say Corbyn has the charisma of The Young Wolf, the way those in his inner circle are turning on him bring back bad memories of The Red Wedding.

Patrick Harvie - Tyrion Lannister 

Always on the periphery of real power, effecting change through his usefulness to those with more influence. Labelled unjustly by the ignorant; one branded a demon mokey, the other condemned as the 'voice of the irresponsible left-led anti-family anti-christian gay whales against the bomb coalition'. However a sharp wit makes both Patrick and Tyrion fan/electorate favourites.
