The LDV Saturday caption competition – the “mine’s a large one” edition

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

Here’s Nick Clegg on a recent visit to cheer on Burnley Lib Dems and their candidate Gordon Birtwistle, as they attempt to unseat Labour and stop the BNP. (With thanks to Hywel Morgan for the picture). What do you think they might be saying to each other, or thinking about each other?

The winner of our most recent caption competition, the ‘never work with children’ edition just six weeks ago (ahem) – according to The Voice’s judging panel of one – was this one from Painfully Liberal.

    Thirty you say Nick? You know William Hague once claimed ten a night!

  • Actualy the last caption comp was the “pretty in pink” edition on the 19th of December. You’d forgotten to post it in “caption comp”.

    Caption for the whole photo.

    You can tell that Nick is a Lib Dem – the glass is half empty.

  • Gordon to Nick, “So we have to stay here until all the conference stewards have drunk their fill?”

  • Gordon: “Which do you fancy Nick, the Blond Witch or the Black Cat?”

    Nick: “I’d prefer you to win Gordon”

  • Stanley Theed 6th Feb '10 - 10:26pm

    Nick to Gordon.

    “Another few pints and I’ll give you a few patsy questions to lob at me at
    Prime Ministers Questions”

  • Anthony Aloysius St 6th Feb '10 - 11:06pm

    Bloke on the right to bloke on the left:
    “Don’t stop smiling – Don’t let them know anything’s wrong – but why is he looking at that cactus in such a peculiar way?”

  • Gordon: “How many are we talking, Nick? 10, 20, 30?”

    Nick: “No more than 30 – it’s a lot less than that.”

  • First meeting of the Burnley gender and ethnic balance task force not judged a success
