LDV Caption Competition: Cameron & Miliband “We’re in this together” Funding Scandal Special Edition

For once, there IS a prize at stake. Better than that, there are TWO prizes. The best two entries of this week’s caption competition will each win a copy of former Labour MP Chris Mullin’s diaries, A View from the Foothills. The hit book has now been adapted for the theatre as A Walk On Part: The Fall of New Labour. So make some extra witty noise for this week’s competition…

Here’s David Cameron and Ed Miliband sharing a special moment together earlier this week. What do you think might be being said or thought by or about them?

And don’t worry, unlike the Tories or Labour we don’t require any fee for you to take part.

And the winner of our last caption comp is…

Some fantastic entries for our most recent caption competition, The Obama & Cameron ‘Special Relationship’ Edition.

The winner, according to The Voice’s judging panel of one, was this one by Nick (Not Clegg):

Cameron: “Three more of these and I’ll be in a position to compare and contrast the US and British health care systems.”

  • Ed…..”£250K for a dinner date, Dave?”. “I tried asking £2.50 and still nobody came!”

  • Tony Dawson 25th Mar '12 - 8:18pm

    (Both) “By now, those Serbian lads we hired will just be tipping that Clegg in the Thames”

  • How about “How did Cleggy get away with claiming living expenses for staying in Brussels when at the same time he owned a house there and then went on to make 360K euros when he sold it?”

  • Richard Dean 25th Mar '12 - 8:44pm

    EM: ‘Fraid I crashed the Rolls, Dave
    DC: No worries, Ed, the owner’s coming to dinner this evening!

  • Keith Browning 25th Mar '12 - 9:37pm

    The Vicar in the background is thinking:

    ‘I wonder how much it would cost to become the next Archbishop of Canterbury?’

  • Ed to Dave: “And if your older brother Allan ever decides to give up the law and go into politics, give me a call and I’ll tell you how to stitch him up!”

  • Ed [adopts brummie accent] “Our parties are considerably richer than yow, Clegg!””

  • Ed: “Between us I think we can shaft that f*****g ‘Tab b*****d Clegg good and proper!”

  • Richard Dean 25th Mar '12 - 11:08pm

    EM: “That bloke with the beard looks a bit like the old Archbishop of Canterbury, poor fella!’
    DC: “Shhhh, he doesn’t know it yet, but he IS the new Archbishop of Canterbury, poor fella!”

  • Phew! At least neither of us is having to sit next to any f**king Lib Dems!


    Ed: I hear there’s a storm brewing
    Dave: Yeah, but don’t worry…Nothing could be as bad as taking money off Michael Brown

  • Ed: “So, does £250,000 get you a shot on the horse as well?”

  • Nick (not Clegg) 26th Mar '12 - 10:34am

    Cameron: ” So here’s the deal; I dump Nick Clegg and go into coalition with you
    Miliband: I bet you’d sell your granny for an extra £3.3 billion”

  • Nick (not Clegg) 26th Mar '12 - 10:36am

    Dave: So here’s the deal; I dump Clegg and go into coalition with you.”
    Ed: “Yeah, right. With Dennis Skinner as Chief Secretary to the Treasury.”

  • Keith Browning 26th Mar '12 - 10:37am

    Ed – ‘so Dave, can I call you Dave?, whats on the menu for tonights 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!!’

  • Nick (not Clegg) 26th Mar '12 - 10:37am

    Ed: “What are you doing for dinner?”
    Dave: ” We could go for a Doner”

  • Cameron (nervously): “Thanks awfully, Ed, but the last guy called Dave who you did a deal with ended up with a knife between his shoulderblades!”

  • Nick (not Clegg) 26th Mar '12 - 12:31pm

    Ed to Cameron “That was a good speech by the Queen, better than the one you wrote!”

  • Cameron’s brain: “I still can’t believe he spent £250,000 to sit next to me.”

  • Keith Browning 26th Mar '12 - 4:21pm

    @ Mario Keith – I think the ‘vicar in the background’ *is* the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    So now he’s thinking – ‘wow that was quick! I only posted the cheque this morning’.

  • Cameron: yes I was around the aroma of a donor dinner but I didn’t inhale.

  • Nick (not Clegg) 27th Mar '12 - 2:55pm

    Miliband to Cameron: ” So, what are the odds on an all-female shortlist for Archbishop of Canterbury?”

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

  • Nick (not Clegg) 29th Mar '12 - 4:19pm

    Ed and Dave tried, in vain,to demonstrate the art of catching to Monty Panesar.
