Happy New Year to readers. I thought it may be appropriate to have a caption competition. The picture is not related to the season, but rather chosen because it constitutes something of a blank canvas. I leave it to the inventiveness of readers to come up with a caption. As ever, the winner will be the entry that in my view is both witty and appropriate to the context.
As usual, the prize will be one of my publications. If you do not already have a copy of Governing Britain – though I like to think (ever the optimist) that only a small number of readers will fall in that category – then a copy of that is on offer.
