Lord Bonkers' Diary: The Gareth Chilcott Inquiry
The fashion nowadays seems to be to appoint prop forwards to conduct inquiries. Fran Cotton is to consider whether or not Market Harborough’s most famous son, Martin Johnson, should be allowed to stay in charge of the England rugby XV, while Gareth Chilcott is currently working on his report on the United Kingdom’s role in the Iraq War. In the latter case at least, I think this is an excellent idea – particularly after Len Hutton’s bosh shot at investigating the death of Dr David Kelly.
Lord Bonkers was Liberal MP for Rutland South-West, 1906-10.
