Liberal Democrat Voice at Conference

So Hugh Grant dropped into the Lib Dem conference in Birmingham today.

He met with Nick Clegg and then addressed the Social Liberal Forum’s fringe event on the issue of phone-hacking, privacy and libel. He wasn’t there to endorse the party, but as the BBC reports here Hugh did give us credit for our long-standing opposition to the murky practices of the tabloids:

“You, more than any of the other parties, have a good bill of health. You have never been in bed with these scumbags.”

Here’s the moment Nick met Hugh (I think it’s that way round rather than Hugh met Nick, yes?)… and as it’s been a while since our last LDV caption competition, what better moment for a reprise? Here you go then…

What do you think Nick or Hugh might have been thinking about, or saying to, each other? As ever, there’s no prize at stake – just the opportunity to prove you’re wittier than any other LDV reader…

    oh look, a picture of a bloke who did a passable impression of a believable and honest politician, talking to Nick Clegg.

    Both: “Is it true you squeezed the lot in in the back of a taxi after a previous elrection?”

  • Tony Dawson 19th Sep '11 - 8:52pm

    “I always knew this monumental coming together in a vehicle for change would eventually have to be arrested and I’d end up completely Browned-off.”

  • Tony Dawson 19th Sep '11 - 8:54pm

    “I used to have a 30-a-day habit too.”

  • “Is that Shane Warne as good at leg spin as people make out?”

    “No, but he scores massively with his googlies down under. Nothing much is ever spilt through the covers.”

  • “Hugh! That sounds very similar to my coalition discussion with ‘big’ Dave”.

  • “Of course I’d have undone all those giant safety-pins in a flash!”

  • “It’s not love, actually, Nick. Just something I caught over the phone from one of the red tops…gave me a hacking cough.”
