LDV Caption Competition: David Cameron & Alex Salmond “Who’ll take the Highland?” Edition

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

Here’s Prime Minister David Cameron and Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond meeting recently to discuss the fate of the Untied [sic] Kingdom. 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, Steve Webb & IDS “Supermarket (Chimney-) Sweep” Edition.

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

Manager: “Does Mr Duncan Smith want to buy anything while he’s here?”
Steve Webb: “Probably. He’s a few sandwiches short of a picnic.”
