LDV Caption Competition | Jeremy Browne “it’s not always this black-and-white” Edition

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

(Hat-tip to ChinaDaily.com.)

Here’s Lib Dem foreign minister Jeremy Browne enjoying a bite to eat with one of two pandas on their way from Bifengxia Yaan Panda Base in China to Edinburgh Zoo. What do you think might be being said or thought by those pictured?

And the winner of our last caption comp is…

Some fantastic entries for our most recent caption competition, John Hemming “you’ll have had your tea” Edition.

The winner, according to The Voice’s judging panel of one, was this one by Tony Dawson, with a highly commended offering by Sesencohere.

    Jeremy noticed that his colleague Mr Hemming’s personal habits were beginning to affect his ability to do his job…


    Jeremy: ‘You see, for just 12 pounds, you can be a part of the Liberal Democrat party – having an impact on government policy through the medium of conference. Shall I sign you up?

  • “Never work with children or animals” (with apologies to John Hemming and W.C. Fields).

  • Browne: “It’s a good job your population is in decline. Otherwise we would have had to charge you for that carrot”

  • “He may be in charge of foreign affairs but this an affair too far ….get me back to China.”
