Caption competition

From an idea by one of the LPUK forum contributors, how about a caption for this poster...?


Answers in the comments, please...

UPDATE: my favourites, both from the comments here and on the forums...
  • Three bright colours. Three big parties. One political monopoly.

  • Tax and spend! Tax and spend!

  • Green taxes! Proceeds of growth! Evil terrorists!
    [subtitle: Birds of a feather...]

  • Your life! Our choice!
    (replace health with "education" or "health" or whatever)

  • Nailed to their perch? Dead parties—dead policies.

  • Investment before tax cuts or We'll spend more on the NHS than the other guys or Choice in education

  • No need for new political parties, squawk!"
    [subtitle: We beg to differ...]

  • Manifesto pledges are not subject to legitimate expectation!

  • This'll hurt you more than it hurts us

  • You Pay; We Squander

  • [leave the speech bubble blank and then subtitle: Making noise but saying nothing...]

  • What did that green parrot over there say we should tax next?

  • [subtitle: Birds of a feather fuck you together.]

All good stuff: keep 'em coming!

UPDATE 2: I love this first one particularly...
  • The United Colours Of Europhilia.

  • Red is for the colour of the Innocents who die in our Hospitals.
    Yellow is for the colour of our cowardice at the Referendum debate.
    Blue is for the colour of the shallow puddle that divides us from the Rest

Very nice.

We listen to the people, disregard it and then parrot the same nonsense as we did before.

I like the first of the comments: 'Three bright colours. Three big parties. One political monopoly.' In that it utterly misses why we have the current state of affairs in our three party system and so, if I may be so bold as to suggest, do you, DK. The populace of this country are not crying out for a new political party. We have three already and new brands are notoriously difficult to establish. My thesis is that the logical case for libertarianism over authoratarianism is simple, as it is so readily supported by the empirical evidence. What is far more difficult is the emotive case. This needs to be made loudly and repeatedly. It is the numbers of repititions that matters. Each repetition, attached to whatever brand, may bring one or two more closer to what we consider to be the correct understanding.
I have observed the friendly differences between yourself and 'the dude' recently, and think that ultimately this is what you differ over. I urge you to reconsider your political affiliations and to throw your weight behind the stimulation of a renaissance of classical liberal ideology and demagoguery in support of whichever of the currently established big three that is closest to your current politics.

Make the backdrop a £20 note, instead of plain white.

Parrots are saying "Ours!"

Subtitle is: "Yours."
