As I have already decided which photograph to use for the next caption competition, I think I had better announce the winner of the April competition. There were some fine entries. DF Rostron deserves a commendation for a particularly clever entry. I was anticipating some entries along the lines of: ‘It’s a pleasure to meet such a world renowned figure’. ‘Well, thank you, Mr President’. Tony Sands did not disappoint and in doing so came up with what I thought was the funniest entry. Quite coincidentally, this is the second in a row in which the winning entry is the first one to be submitted. He wins with:
” Oh really Barack, I get this all the time. Tell me a world leader who hasn’t read the Constitution in Flux and I might be interested!”
Well, it made me laugh. Runner-up was MrJontyF with an entry that will resonate with my students.
As I know the winner already has a copy of The Voice of the Backbenchers, I will arrange for a copy of Eminent Parliamentarians to find its way to him.
