And the winner is…

DSC03290Selecting a winner from all the entries in the latest competition was far from easy.  I narrowed it down to six.   It was a close run thing, given that several met the ‘laugh out loud’ test, not least because they were so original.  Kim Styles made me laugh with ‘Never paint your nails just before you need to retrieve your prepared speech’, as did Daniel Cooper with ‘Lord Norton welcomes in the New Year with a midnight lecture on the British constitution.  But first the countdown.  All together now… 10 …’  Tony Sands was in the running with ‘Just back off. I couldn’t get a contact number for Erskine May but I’ve ‘eard this bloke’s even better’. That’s one that will appeal especially to parliamentary specialists.

However, at the end of the day, I opted for one that seemed to fit the picture and was as funny as it was succinct.  Ruth Dixon wins with

‘And tenthly…’

If she would like to get in touch, the prize will be on its way.
