Caption competition: a montage

thatcherdebateFor this month’s caption competition, I thought I would make it a little more challenging than usual by using a montage I was sent from the debate in which I participated just over a couple of years ago at Lancaster University.  (You can see a video of the debate here.)  Mind you, experience suggests whenever I think a task is challenging, some readers immediately demonstrate that for them it is no such thing.

As usual, the winner will be the reader who offers what in my opinion is the wittiest and most appropriate caption.  The prize will be one of my recent publications.
