The LDV Saturday caption competition – the “Lembit pops his cork” edition

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

Here’s Lib Dem MP for Montgomeryshire Lembit Opik celebrating the saving of Abermule Post Office from closure. What do you think Lembit, or those surrounding him, might be saying to each other, or thinking about each other?

The winner of our most recent caption competition, the “mine’s a large one” edition a fortnight ago – according to The Voice’s judging panel of one – was this one from Andy Mayer; with an honourable mention to this one from LJH.

Oh, and as a reader observed, the Voice failed to award a prize for the pre-Christmas caption competition – the “Pretty in Pink” edition featuring Nick Clegg and John Leech. So let’s put that right immediately: congratulations to Cheltenham Robin for this effort.
