LDV Caption Competition: Vince & Dave “Watch your step” Edition

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

Here’s Lib Dem business secretary Vince Cable, the man who declared war on Murdoch, side-by-side with the man who LOL-ed with News International. 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, Nick & Dave “Can you feel the love?” Edition.

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

Nick: “And as you can see, Dave is wearing Sure for Men. 24 hour protection that won’t let you down – and crucially for this Conservative, no unsightly yellow patches…”

  • You’d better go first Vince, I need to watch my back

  • Romer Hoseason 26th May '12 - 9:00pm

    DC What was that plan of yours for crushing Murdoch again Vince?

  • If I wasn’t so power hungry I would have parachuted down well before the runway David.

  • VC: ‘Are you sure we should be this way round, you on the left and me on the right?’
    DC: ‘No worries Vince, it’s to show you are really my right hand man’.
    VC: ‘that’s just what I was worried about!’

  • David Allen 28th May '12 - 1:52pm

    Vince: “Have you heard about Lib Dem Voice Caption Competition?”

    Dave: “No, but don’t worry, just for once we’re not doing anything that anyone will be able to make a good joke about.”

  • Keith Browning 28th May '12 - 8:37pm

    DC – ‘ This is a bit too much like a Morecambe and Wise Show for my liking Vince.’

    VC – ‘Well PM I think you’re right. Not long now till the fat lady sings’.

  • Keith Browning 29th May '12 - 6:40pm

    I suddenly realised at least half my intended audience weren’t born when M&W were top of the pops. This clip is relevant in so many ways – from the name of the song, the dancing to the red headed woman.

  • Nick (not Clegg) 30th May '12 - 11:05am

    DC to VC: “I liked your line about riding two horses: who did you borrow them from?”
