Martin… please contact me so that I can get a bottle of Rioja from my personal crate to you
and a book voucher from Wildy’s bookshop.
CAPTION COMPETITION FOR JUNE
This month, to demonstrate my political fairness, I have a picture of Sir Ming….
The prize is, as ever, a bottle of Rioja… and a voucher from Wildy’s
And… just to start you off… here is my offering:
“Look… no support…”
OK… OK… I am in a bar using their Wi-fi … “Summertime…. and the drinking is easy….”
Do your worst / best…. and remember the Olympic tradition… It is better to win than to take part.
Result at the beginning of July….
As always… I am the umpire… and I don’t have any assistance from hawkeye or a third or even fourth umpire…. I like democracy… but.. my caption competitions are a matter of ‘caprice’…
Mind you… if I was really independent – politically…. I would have asked you to try your hand at writing a caption for the pic of Webcameron who is, apparently… the ‘true heir to Blair’…. I am sure the good people of Tonbridge and the South East of England were pleased to hear George Osborne (Shadow Chancellor) say that!
By the way… I am thinking of:
Becoming an MP, without bothering with an election.. after all… what is good for the next PM, is good for the gander.
Yes… “Charon QC, MP”…. sounds good to me. I don’t mind if I don’t become PM….I’ll just hang out on the back benches, smoking cigarettes at the Commons – which, I am told, will be exempt from the new “No Smoking” regulations due on 1st July…. and I certainly won’t be daft enough to get my travel card taken away from me, unlike three MPs… who, it is alleged, have had their travel cards taken away from them [Only we don't know who they are because Freedom of Information legislation can only go so far.]
Observant readers will note that I have put the pic of WebCameron on the ‘right’.
