Here’s the new Lib Dem party president Tim Farron side-by-side with Lib Dem leader and deputy prime minister Nick Clegg. What do you think they might be saying to, or thinking about, each other?

The winner of our most recent caption competition, the “Tim Farron goes out on a wing” edition – according to The Voice’s judging panel of one – was this one by Matt Downey.

Me and my mate, we sit down either side of these Lib Dem hot shots, and we just, like, casually mention that we work for the Telegraph, as this photographer guy rolls up.

    Tim to Nick
    “To be forgiven by the people, you must destroy Emperor Cameron. Just remember not to take of your mask, for it will reveal to the people that you are still the same you that was in the great debate battles of the clone labservative party wars where we won through. You must not do that until the absolute final moment an then the election will be ours”

  • Malcolm Todd 3rd Jan '11 - 10:01pm
