Lord Bonkers' Diary: The Reverend Hughes and the angels
I call in at St Asquith’s and find the Revd Hughes listening to two chaps with wings.
“Isn’t it terrible about Nicaragua and I feel so sorry for social workers. I blame the coalition,” says one.
“I am looking forward to seeing that new film with the dialogue in Ancient Manx. I think films like that should be subsidised. Did you read Polly Toynbee this morning?”
“Who were they?” I asked the Revd Hughes after they have gone. “Guardian angels,” he explains.
Lord Bonkers was Liberal MP for Rutland South-West 1906-10
