LDV Saturday caption competition: “Paddy swings to the left” edition

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

Here’s former Lib Dem leader Lord (Paddy) Ashdown out campaigning. What caption do you think might adorn this becoming image?

The winner of our most recent caption competition, the “Kramer vs Zac” edition – according to The Voice’s judging panel of one – was this one by John Ruddy, with an honourable mention to this one by Chris Squire.

Got a photo of a prominent Lib Dem you think would work well for a future caption competition? Then please email us at [email protected]
