LDV Caption Competition: Clegg & Obama “Seoul Brothers” Edition

There’s no prize at stake – just the opportunity to prove you’re wittier than any other LDV reader…

As I mentioned yesterday, Nick Clegg has been busy this week doing some real work. Here he is meeting US President Barack Obama, together with Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. What do you think might be being said or thought by or about them?

And the winners of our last caption comp is…

Some fantastic entries for our most recent caption competition, Cameron & Miliband “We’re in this together” Funding Scandal Special Edition.

The winners, according to The Voice’s judging panel of one, was this one by Danny:

This year’s ‘Hold the invisible rugby ball’ competition was a dead heat.

and this one by Keith Browning

Ed: ‘So Dave, can I call you Dave?, what’s on the menu for tonight’s dinner?
PM: ‘I haven’t checked, but I think its two greenfield planning permissions, a Royal Commission chair and possibly a knighthood – just a normal quiet night at home!!’

Congratulations to you both — you each win a copy of former Labour MP Chris Mullin’s diaries, A View from the Foothills. Which, incidentally, I reviewed here. Can you e-mail [email protected] with your address so we can post them to you, please?

Got a photo of a prominent Lib Dem you think would work well for a future caption competition? Then please email us at [email protected]

    Nick decided to go bold: “So, if you fancy it, we can ditch the dame, go back to my place, have some drinks, see what happens…?”

  • Keith Browning 1st Apr '12 - 8:30pm

    Nick – ‘I might be looking for a new job in 2016 and I hear you became President without being born in the USA, so I might give it a go. My Spanish is good so that will give me a head start.’

    Manmahan Singh: “Would you believe a samosa?”
    Helle Thornig-Schmidt: ” Or a Danish pastry?”

  • David Allen 6th Apr '12 - 2:01pm

    Clegg: “Yankee scum, if you don’t stop chasing after our women from Europe, I’ll smash your face in!”

    Manmohan Singh (quietly): “You need both your fists for this, you stupid third-rate street brawler. I’ll just bide my time for now, and then come in and clean up when the cameras have moved on.”

  • Clegg to Obama: …and allow me to introduce you to Neil Kinnock’s daughter-in-law.

    True story.
