Lord Bonkers' Diary: The first Lady Bonkers at the wheel
Oh, and subscribe to Liberator.
The first Lady Bonkers at the wheel
Some years ago, a police constable called at the Hall to tell me that there had been a complaint lodged against me. One of my motors had burst through a farmyard gate scattering the chickens, narrowly missed the farmer as the driver shouted “Get out of the way, you damned fool!” and then made its escape by ploughing through a hedge and racing across a field of newly planted wheat.
I explained that it had been the First Lady Bonkers who had been driving and he went away entirely satisfied.
Lord Bonkers was Liberal MP for Rutland South-West 1906-10
