Who should win the GP caption competition?

Thank you for the 15 entries to the caption competition we ran in the 20 June edition.

We asked you to put words into the mouth of health minister Ben Bradshaw.
Check out the 11 July edition for details of the winner but in the meantime here are all the entries for your amusement. Which one do you think should win?

  1. ‘Her Majesty thinks she's got cash flow problems! I'm not sure we can even afford to mend that large crack in the ceiling.'
  2. ‘One day that Boots directorship will be mine, all mine ... ha ha ha!'
  3. ‘Boy, this new haemorrhoid cream the GP gave me stings!'
  4. ‘ ... and after all that, we got them to work longer hours as well!'
  5. ‘Another reason why I take Viagra - it boosts the blood flow to the lungs and speech centre.'
  6. ‘You what? Will I sign your petition?'
