Lord Bonkers' Diary: In support of equal marriage


I cannot understand this fuss about allowing equal marriage. A friend of mine was once serving as best man at a wedding in a neighbouring parish when, having dallied with Bacchus at the stag night the evening before, spoke out in the wrong place and found himself married to the vicar.

The Church of Rutland being strict on matters of doctrine (it held to the back-foot no ball rule even after the Eastern Orthodox chaps had given it up), divorce was out of the question; so my friend determined to make the best of things and did sterling work baking cakes for sales and running the church ladies’ group. All in all, it was one of the happiest marriages I have ever known.

Lord Bonkers was Liberal MP for Rutland South-West 1906-10.
