Caption competition for May

064Someone on Twitter did suggest I use the picture in the last post as the basis for a caption competition, but I decided a door may not be the most exciting of subjects.  Instead, I have opted for a photograph taken at the Hull reception for the publication of the 2nd edition of Parliament in British Politics.  The picture shows three of Hull’s finest – Ben Goldsborough, Ross Picton and Stephen Hankinson – holding flyers for the book.

The reader coming up with what in my judgment is the wittiest caption will win a copy of one of my recent publications.
