Caption competition: What are Peter Mathews and RBB talking about?

Over to you…

IT LOOKS LIKE one of the more unlikely friendships in politics.

Ideological opposites Peter Mathews and Richard Boyd Barrett had a good ol’ natter on the plinth of Leinster House this afternoon – but what did they talk about?

The sunshine? The merits of a good tie pin? The various injustices they’ve both fought against?

Give us your suggestions in the comments – and please, we’re begging you: keep it clean.
