A Merry Christmas to all readers. At this time of festive cheer, I thought I would post a caption competition. The previous one elicited some excellent entries.
Here is another picture of me speaking to students at Imperial College. There will be a prize for the reader suggesting the most amusing caption. There may even be a prize for the runner-up…
Lord Norton: “And for future reference, the cake should be THIS big…”
MrJontyF: Off to an excellent start; a potential prize winner…
“Yes we DO have a constitution but no one thought it necessary to write it down. We are not so crass as those Americans with their fancy parchment!”
Andrew Ian Dodge: OK, who sent you a transcript of my talk?
“The Lord’s attempts at convincing the Dragons Den on the soundness of his business model were not going as well as he might have hoped.”
“And that, dear boy, is why MY suit is superior to yours and always will be!”
And when he told the committee that an elected House of Lords was self evidently the most democratic option, I knew I had him by the you-know-whats….
Dean B: Hmm, not far off….
This is a good one, you’ll like this. Baroness Trumpington taught it me. It’s called “Gangnam Style”…
Lord Norton “These wines behind me are middling and remind one of the French Constitution which governs winemakers and is also of middling quality. I normally do not drink before these lectures, I think that may be something of a habit to reform in the future…”
Merry Christmas Lord Norton and all Commenters.
– Perhaps one of the least expected moments of the evening was Lord Norton going through with a request of performing a rendition of “He’s got the whole world in his hands”.
– On being asked whether politicians were capable of giving simple, straight answers to questions, Lord Norton decided to answer through interpretive dance.
Merry Christmas Lord Norton and all!
The Police have warned the public to be on the lookout for a very fast melon thief
“…and then they name me King Phillip of Great Britain, its remarkable how flexible the constitution can actually be with a bit of know-how”
simon wright: Hope you are not implying that I may have a power complex…
A nation is disappointed when a clerical error leads to Lord Norton’s Christmas message being broadcast, not in 3 dimensions, but to 3 dissertationists.
Lord Norton: “It’s just a jump to the left….”
So this is how you hold Baroness Trumpington on the dance floor!!
Tory boy: I’m not that brave..
Lord N: “If you want your hands to look as smooth and clean as mine, become an academic or a peer – or both!”
To try to get a joint number one hit for Christmas there is no truth in the rumour that Cameron, Osbourne and Clegg have formed a boy band called No Direction.
A heavy fiscal policy is what we have, and it just about sits nicely in these Tory hands. What is your feeling around it? Mmm?
“What do you mean you haven’t brought anything for next year’s caption competition prizes?”
“I don’t have any more philosophical arguments up my sleeve on this issue”
“Hard times force impoverished academic to try his hand at selling wine for a tenner”
“I find that to understand politics in the world today it is useful to study Tai Chi Chuan. In this interior Kung Fu hand position we find the same energies as exist in a bicameral parliament. In a moment I will break three bottles in a move I developed called Tory Lion…”.
