Welcome – caption competition

Today was taken up with a University Open Day.  There was a good turnout of potential applicants and my colleagues and I were kept busy explaining what we had to offer.  Here’s a picture of me, looking keen and ready for business, at the Politics Stand.  The picture was taken by one of our PhD students, Tim Oliver, who also thought it would lend itself to a caption competition.  So over to you.  There will be a prize for the reader offering what, in my estimation, is the most amusing caption.

    ‘What disclosure requirement? Once we leave EU juriisdiction we will withdraw from the Human Rights Act oppression altogether. And the fun is, along with our projections on secret courts and inquests, we shall have free reign as British sovereignty dictates. Why fear being resident in such an open environment? We extradite only ‘terrorists’ to the US, not those using PC’s in student residence…. No worries, quickly, just put your X here.’

    No. 1. In the picture of Westminster behind me, the tower appears to lean, but is it to the left or to the right?

    No. 2. Will all politics students please remember they are here to labour over there studies, are to be conservation with their alchol consumption, and are not to be too liberal with their study time.
