LDV Caption Competition: Cameron & Miliband “Cooee!” Edition

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

Here’s Labour leader Ed Miliband waving across the aisle to David Cameron at the Diamond Jubilee service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral. What do you think might be being said or thought by or about them?

And the winner of our last caption comp is…

Some fantastic entries for our most recent caption competition, Nick.i.am “Hands on with Clinton” Edition.

The winner, according to The Voice’s judging panel of one, was this one by Andrew K:

The question all three ask themselves every day, with different meanings: “Where is the love?”

    ‘At the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, Cameron and Miliband court controversy by publicly betting on the number of Lib Dem MPs that will be re-elected in 2015’

  • While the Prime Minister was briefly distracted, John Major used the opportunity to see if his chat-up lines still worked on Samantha Cameron.

  • Richard Dean 9th Jun '12 - 7:10pm

    Cameron and Miliband practice their Mirror You Mirror Me routine for the upcoming Come Dancing final, while time marches on and all around search for policies and strategies or, even, just a trace of plain common sense.

  • William Pimm 9th Jun '12 - 7:44pm

    Cameron – ‘This is how to do the Royal Wave -you Oik’
    Milliband – ‘More like the goodbye to Downing Street Wave – LOL’

  • Simon Beard 9th Jun '12 - 11:23pm

    Cameron – “You can’t even wave properly”
    Miliband – “Mr Speaker, that’s pathetic”

    Both are just feeling grateful for a spot of privacy to drop their pretence of being different and not getting along for a few minutes.

    Cameron – “This sucks, nobody on my side wants to be seen talking to me”
    Miliband – “No, same here”

  • Tony Dawson 9th Jun '12 - 11:26pm

    “When Nick Clegg walks by, you grab the right one and I’ll grab the left.”

  • David Allen 10th Jun '12 - 1:15am

    Ed: We’re two swords’ length apart. So no change there then!

    Dave: Yeah, so let’s do a bit of air swordsmanship to pass the time…

  • David Allen 10th Jun '12 - 1:16am

    Samcam: I’m not with him!
    Justine: …and I’m not with him!

  • Daniel Henry 10th Jun '12 - 2:44am

    “Rock! Paper! Scissors!”

  • Cameron: “Yo Bro!”

    Miliband: “I’ve made sure David wasn’t invited.”

  • Keith Browning 10th Jun '12 - 9:29am

    Woman in grey hat- ‘what a disaster this is. Who could imagine that ‘centre aisle’ on the ticket meant we were going to be stuck in the centre of the frigging aisle – and then the two comedians in the penguin suits start waving at each other – just to draw attention to us – Embarrassing or what. I just want to curl up and die.’

  • ‘where is the love’.. oh that was last week, and it wasn’t funny then.!

  • Grace Goodlad 10th Jun '12 - 4:59pm

    Looks like they have reverted to type and Sheldon is playing Leonard at TBBT Stone, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock…..

  • Cameron: “Yes I know I have four fingers trying to get out of my right ear”.

  • Cameron….”Save my seat, Ed; I’ve got to nip out to find my daughter”

  • Major: Oh Samantha, you remind me of a young Edwina Currie
    SamCam: Can we swap seats with the Milibands?
    Dave: Ed, do you two want to swap with us and sit here on the left?
    Ed: Stay there Dave, I can’t make a major policy decision like swapping seats until I have commissioned some research on what the voters will think.

  • LondonLiberal 11th Jun '12 - 1:46pm

    george potter has to win for that one!

  • DC & EM (in harmony): “I though we were on the same side.”
    DC & EM (in harmony): “That’s what my tailor said.”

  • Richard Dean 12th Jun '12 - 2:19pm

    In an astonishingly accurate, almost textbook illustration of the complexity of modern British politics, Cameron sits on the Left and waves with his Right, while Miliband sits on the Right and waves with his Left.

  • Either “No, this is the sound of one hand clapping !”.
