Both Palmer and Dursley stand as a true representation of what can happen when you have too much. Wealth, that is.

Joe and Dudley both suffer from silver spoon syndrome - they'd shudder to think of what life would be like as a person from a lower socioeconomic background.

3. Julie Bishop as Professor Umbridge.

That stare. That perfectly coiffed hair. Bishop and Umbridge may share a polished demeanour but let's be glad Bishop sticks to using emojis to throw shade, rather than the punishing Black Quill.

Pettigrew can transform into a rat. We'll let you figure out what that means about Pyne.

5. Penny Wong as Professor Mcgonagall.

You just don’t want these two to ever look at you with disappointment or disdain. Ever.

6. Scott Morrison as Lucius Malfoy.

Malfoy Manor and Scott Morrison’s Cronulla-based electoral office are basically the same place. Both figures seem to demonstrate a compete lack of empathy for anybody existing outside their inner circle.

7. Anthony Albanese as Vincent Crabbe.

Albanese has more personality than Crabbe but considering all Crabbe used to do was grunt, that’s not saying much.

8. Jacqui Lambie as Rita Skeeter.

Both Lambie and Skeeter have quite the way with words. We'd hate (and maybe love) to see what thoughts would come out of Lambie if she had a Quick-Quotes Quill handy.

9. Wyatt Roy as Draco Malfoy.

Some may argue both Roy and Malfoy are a little too young and immature to be handling the responsibility given to them.

10. Julia Gillard as Molly Weasley.

Fiery in hair and fiery in spirit, Molly and Julia are both strong-willed women not scared on treading on anyone's feelings to get their point across. You can almost picture Julia Gillard sending numerous Howlers to the Liberal Party.

11. Cory Bernardi as Rufus Scrimgeour.

Stringent and unlikely to consider another person’s point of view, Bernardi and Scrimgeour are both notorious for voicing loud, unpopular opinions that suit what they believe in, as compared to the wider population.

Rudd and Fudge - while both likeable enough - don’t always demonstrate the right judgment when making the big decisions.

13. Malcolm Turnbull as Gilderoy Lockhart.

Their toothy smiles and suave dress sense may initially win people over, but both Turnbull and Lockhart prove that relying on popularity doesn't always get you ahead of the game.

14. Bill Shorten as The Bloody Baron.

What do Bill Shorten and The Bloody Baron have in common? You just don’t exactly understand their point yet. Are they fighting for the greater good? Are they fighting for evil? Do they just not give a fuck? Can you even trust them? So many unanswered questions.

Sometimes it's just easier to believe Tony Abbott has someone attached to the back of his head, telling him what to say.
