And the winner is

nortonDebate-3[1]

Happy New Year to readers.  I thought I would get the year off to a flying start by announcing the winner of the Christmas caption competition.   It was a difficult choice.  The entries were strong in number and quality, with a late flurry of some good entries.  However, I have made a choice.  By a short head, the winner is MrJontyF with:

‘And for future reference, the cake should be THIS big’.

Regular readers will understand the context.  Anyway, I thought it was very good.

There are two runners-up:

barry winetrobe with: ‘If you want your hands to look as smooth and clean as mine, become an academic or peer – or both!’

Wenbo Chen with: ‘I don’t have any more philosophical arguments up my sleeve on this issue.’

Many thanks to everyone who entered.  I think I can deduce from MrJonty F’s e-mail address who he is and will arrange to present his prize shortly.  The runners-up will also receive a prize, albeit not as weighty.

    This is my first award from Great Britain. Maybe I need a party for celebration…

    Can you do a blog to explain the rule of pre-emption on amendments to bills in the Lords?
