Friday Caption Contest on a Sunday - How Much does a Lib Dem peerage cost edition

Have the MP's awarded themselves the pay rise they need to stop them stealing on expenses/retain the best talent? I have lost track. But nothing seems to change with the political classes. And so I read today that James Palumbo, the founder of the Ministry of Sound is to be made a Lib Dem peer having given the party £500,000 (or half a Bernie).  Of coure all political parties play the same game and I am sure that this can be justified. After all his Dad is a Lord and what with cocaine being found in nine loos at the Houses of Parliament last week a night club boss will feel right at home there.

Anyhow please supply your captions for this picture in the comments section below.

For what it's worth my entries are:

"We are different from the old parties...we are here to change the corrupt established way of doing politics"

or

"Yes James, I said five, yes five hundred that will be enough your Lordship"

Last week I asked you for captions to this picture



The best,, once again, comes from Donalgarth and is:

"1.6 million for all that effort, we'll get more than that in expenses for today."

Oops… this is more than a bit embarrassing for Goldstone Resources (GRL), its boss Ms Emma Priestley, hapless Nomad Strand Hanson and indeed the wider AIM Casino, aka the world’s most successful growth market. Shares in Goldstone were suspended at 1.30 PM as it appears the company does not actually exist and has not done so for half a year.
