LDV Caption Competition: Osborne, Clegg & Alexander “Three Musketeers” Edition

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

Here is Tory Chancellor George Osborne flanked by the two Lib Dem members of the ‘Quad’, Nick Clegg and Danny Alexander. 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, Tim Farron & Prince Charles “I want that hat” Edition.

The winners, according to The Voice’s judging panel of one, was this one by Nick (not Clegg):

Tim to HRH: “How do you feel about GCHQ monitoring your conversations with plants?”
HRH to Tim: “How do you feel about them monitoring yours with God?”
