Lord Bonkers' Diary: The bitch was blameless

We travel to the West Country with the old brute today and encounter nuclear power and an unforunate episode in Liberal Party history.

These will then be burnt by the plant’s Chinese owners to generate electricity and we shall pay them more than generously for so doing. It is clear the Wise Woman of Wing did not negotiate that deal.
