LDV Caption Competition: David Cameron & Jeremy Hunt “Human shield” Edition

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

Here is Conservative leader David Cameron with his culture secretary Jeremy Hunt. After this week’s Leveson Inquiry revelations, 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, Nick Clegg & Kirsty Williams “Spooning Here” Edition.

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

“It starts off warm, sticky and sweet, and ends up cold, hard and bitter.”

    Cameron :

    ‘Hold my hand and sing along with me Jeremy…it works like a treat for poor Cleggy

    Smile though your heart is aching
    Smile even though it’s breaking

    Light up your fac e with gladness
    Hide every trace of sadness

    Smile and maybe tomorrow you’ll see the sun shining through for you…

    Although a tear maybe ever so near
    That’s the time you must keep on trying….”

  • Keith Browning 28th Apr '12 - 5:10pm

    JH – ‘Dave, I’m sorry but I think I’ve messed my pants. !!

  • Keith Browning 28th Apr '12 - 5:19pm

    Can I amend above

    JH – ‘Dave, I’m sorry but I think I’ve filled my pants. !!

    DC – ‘Its OK Jezza the Cabinet Secretary will clear up the mess.’

  • Richard Dean 28th Apr '12 - 5:33pm

    Men and women in background: Phew! Is that you? Who’s messed their pants??!!!!
    Cameron and Hunt: Just keep smiling and no-one will notice!

  • Andrew Emmerson 28th Apr '12 - 5:38pm

  • Paul Walter Paul Walter 28th Apr '12 - 6:20pm

    DC “I knew you’d like my tickling stick”

  • Alun Griffiths 28th Apr '12 - 9:08pm

    And Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii, will aaaalways love youoooooooooooooooooo

  • Cameron: Hunt are you a giver or receiver?

    Hunt: Oh I am a receiver, in fact, I have received so much when I bend over it’s like a satellite dish, im open to many channels.

  • Cameron: (Thinks) Now, I wonder if I can get Jeremy to resign after giving evidence at Leveson, without having to go to another enquiry that may implicate me ?

    Cameron: Now, Jeremy, you are going to work directly into that open main hole cover about 20 metres in front of you, continue smiling whilst you do so,

  • You’re the political equivalent of an ugly wingman Jeremy. Compared to you I appear to be trustworthy, honest, and not at all a disposable Murdoch asset. Even your mum probably finds that smile smarmy.

  • “And then we shift NHS resources to build privately run hotels on their sites! It’s fantastic, we’ve set the groundwork to destroy the whole NHS! Of course, if it hadn’t been for Clegg getting his lot to vote for it we’d have never got it through, but we offered him a well-paid non-job in the EU once he’s finished off his party, and he just jumped at the offer…”

  • Richard Snowdon 29th Apr '12 - 2:12am

    Cameron: “I’m sure there’s a pasty shop somewhere around here…”
    Hunt: “Hah! He didn’t even read the Budget, no wonder I’m still a minister!”

  • Jeremy “what do you mean, human shield? I thought that was Eric”.
    Dave “Get with the programme Jeremy, Eric is my token northerner”

  • David C: Now Jeremy, you may need to lie down and think of Brasenose

    Jeremy: but David, I went to Magadalen College.

    David Cameron: No matter, still think of Brasenose

  • David Cameron: My kingdom for a horse.

    Jeremy Hunt: I have plenty what comes out of the other end of one, if that’s helpful.

  • Cameron…”Jeremy, let go of my balls?”
    Hunt….”Ok! But first, you let go of mine”

  • JH.. ‘that was good, reminded me of my school days’
    DC .. ‘I told you, my boy, it’s not what you know…’

  • DC: ‘Don’t worry! If you end up on the dole, I’ll give Emma Harrison a ring…A4e will find a job for you!’

  • DC: “Jeremy. Why are all these cockney oiks saying I’m “a right out-of-touch Jeremy.” ?
