I am conscious that it has been some months since I posted the last caption competition. Now is probably a good time for a bit of light relief before I resume posts on serious issues, including reverting to some issues on which I have posted recently.
More than one person has suggested that for the competition I should use the picture of the Lord Speaker, Lord Fowler, unveiling my portrait at the end of last year. I realise that there are certain risks in pursuing that recommendation. The ultimate safeguard, I suppose, is that I determine the winning entry.
As usual, the winner will be the reader who offers what in my view is the wittiest and most appropriate caption. The prize will be one of my publications or possibly even a print of the portrait; or possibly both.
Feel free to submit your entries….
