LDV Caption Competition: Clegg at Leveson “Through the glasses darkly” Edition

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

Here’s Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg appearing at the Leveson Inquiry this week. What do you think might be being said or thought by or about him?

And the winner of our last caption comp is…

Some fantastic entries for our most recent caption competition, Cameron & Miliband “Cooee!” Edition.

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

‘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′

with an honourable mention for this one by Tony Dawson:

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