Caption competition: And the winner is…


This month’s caption competition featured someone who is no stranger to the headlines – Lord Mandelson, pictured here earlier this year.

We decided to crown HR manager John Gillic as the winner this time, and he has chosen a bottle of Chilean red (Vina Carmen Pinot Noir) as his prize. John’s winning caption was:

"If I can just swallow this last receipt I’ll be safe from The Telegraph’s prying eyes"

Sorry if you didn’t win this time – check back in July for the next competition!
