Caption Competition: Lady T Visits Total Politics


We had a very important visitor to the Total Politics office this morning. Steve Nallon, the voice of Margaret Thatcher on Spitting Image, popped over to dress up for an interview I was intending to do with him/her on College Green. However, the best laid plans, and all that. It was pouring with rain so those nice folks at Sky News took pity on us and let us conduct the interview there. You'll see the result here in a few days. It's quite disconcerting talking to Steve in his full regalia. It seemed wrong to call him Steve, so I called him Prime Minister all the time! He caused quite a stir wandering up the road to 4 Millbank.

Anyway, feel free to add a caption competition...
