Given the popularity of the caption competition, I thought it appropriate to open the New Year with one. The picture is one I posted earlier of me speaking in October at the Wales Governance Centre in Cardiff. After I had posted it, a friend suggested it would make a good photograph for the caption competition. So here it is and over to you. As usual, the reader who provides what I consider the most apt and witty caption will win. In past competitions, some readers have been especially eagle-eyed in utilising points of detail and some highly inventive. The winner will receive one of my recent publications.
