LDV Sunday caption competition: “Jeremy Browne passes the hat” edition

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

Here’s Jeremy Browne, Taunton Deane Lib Dem MP and Minister of State at the Foreign Office, marking the launch of the Indonesian Embassy’s new hybrid car “Prius” at the Ambassador’s residence. What do you think Jeremy or the Ambassador might have been saying or thinking?

The winner of our most recent caption competition, the “Mark Pack points at pothole” edition – according to The Voice’s judging panel of one – was this one by Andy Mayer, with an honorary mention to this one by Martin Land.

  • If a lib dem wants to speak in parliament they must wear this hat to show its not government policy but their own personal views

  • ‘And you’re sure Nick says wearing this was in the coalition agreement?’

  • “I read in The Guardian you’re a Tory now. I thought you would like a fancy top hat.”

  • Andrea Gill 25th Jul '10 - 3:55pm

    “So, if we hold out this magical top hat, no Tory will be able to resist donating to our party funds, you say?”

  • ” I’ve flown all this way to launch our green credentials. Must be as mad as Hatta* ”

    *Name of the eventual recipient of this gift , the Indonesian Coordinating Economic Minister, Hatta Radjasa.

  • Ambassador: “This once belonged to General Suharto.”

    JB: “Hmmmm. A mass murderer touched this? It looks as if I’ll have to disinfect myself.”

  • Anthony Aloysius St 25th Jul '10 - 10:03pm

    Browne: [thinks] “There must be some way I can claim for this thing on expenses …”

  • ‘So, this was the very basket Michael Brown delivered his donation in? Do you think it will work again?’

  • Cheltenham Robin 25th Jul '10 - 11:21pm

    Jeremy says:

    “Great, I give you a Flagon Of Taunton’s finest Cider and I get this stupid hat in return”

  • Andrea Gill 26th Jul '10 - 2:06am

    “Well Jeremy, at least Labour’s former Chief Secretary left you a note – ours just left us this pot to p*** in…”

  • You’re *sure* this is the sorting hat from Harry Potter ?

    I don’t remember him recommending the Hufflepuff/Slytherin coalition in any of the books I’ve read.

  • I imagine that the truth is stranger than our attempts at wit in this case!

  • “No pressure Minister, you may draw any ticket you like; only this is President Yudhoyono’s first tombola, and he’d very much like to win the gooseberry jam”
