Here is Lib Dem party president Tim Farron meeting Prince Charles this week. 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, Clegg & Obama “Seoul Brothers” Edition.

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

    perhaps to add a little spice the “wearer of the hat” is the Lord Lieutenant of Cumbria, Sir James Cropper….so someone might want to think about “coming a Cropper”!

  • Tim: God save the Queen!
    Charles: I’d rather you didn’t say that…
    Tim: Why? Not the ASA again?!
    Charles: No, no. Personal reasons.

    Charles – ‘under that hat you’ll see that my father has decided to go back to his hippie days of the 1960’s and 70’s. The Queen doesn’t really approve but he is getting on a bit and she likes to humour him’.

  • Man in hat “Future King meet future Lib Dem leader”
    Farron “chin up Chuck, there is more chance the public will abolish us than the Monarchy”

  • Charles….”For the last time; I don’t want to buy a copy of the ‘Warcry’!”

  • David Allen 8th Apr '12 - 11:46pm

    Cropper: This hat’s just the thing if you’ve got a slightly receding hairline….
    Charles: Hmm, I’ve been promised a sort of diamond affair which is supposed to achieve a similar effect, but I just don’t seem to be able to get my hands on it any time soon.
    Tim: Me too. I guess we’ll just have to change the “Winning Here” slogan that we used to use on the diamond….

    Bouncers at the exclusive In-You-End-Oh! mens’ club prepare to turn more crazed OAPs away as rumours spread like wildfire that Theresa “I’ll do Anything to Catch the Bad Guy” Brasier’s sparkling performance cures everybody of everything

  • “Mr. Farron is now a homeopath, you say? Well at least he’ll agree with me about the danger of free radicals.”

  • Nick (not Clegg) 9th Apr '12 - 3:42pm

    HRH to the man in uniform: “Tim’s a Liberal Democrat;he doesn’t like to wear labels”.

  • Nick (not Clegg) 10th Apr '12 - 11:07am

    Tim to HRH: “How do you feel about GCHQ monitoring your conversations with plants?”
    HRH to Tim:” How do you feel about them monitoring yours with God?”
