I was spoilt for choice in selecting a winner for the first caption competition of 2015. There were some splendid entries. Some readers were very keen, submitting (not for the first time) more than one entry. However, I have now selected a winner and a very close runner up. The choice ultimately was between Andrew who offered:
Moderator: Psst, Lord Norton – as you’re presenting, where is the cake?
And a very late entry from Gerry McMahon with:
The Pet Shop Boys are still looking good in 2015.
Even I got that one. I think.
In the end, I decided that Andrew was the winner: I liked the mix of what happens in my seminars with the posture in the picture. Gerry McMahon gets the silver medal. I would also add a commendation for the entry by NNJ Palo, which also made me laugh (The man behind the desk is thinking: ‘My working day has ended an hour ago. When is he going to stop…?’) If Andrew would like to get in touch, a copy of The Voice of the Backbenchers will be on its way.
