Lord Bonkers' Diary: Meadowcroft and the magic money tree

Today the spotlight is turned on a stalwart member of staff at the Hall. We may not have heard the last of this.


I complain about the prime minister to Meadowcroft this morning as we inspect my gardens. “Did you heaer her tell that nurse there is no magic money tree?” I ask. “It sounded Terribly Patronising. Mind you, I suppose she is right. There is no such thing as a magic money tree, is there?”

To my surprise, Meadowcroft replies hotly: “What I have in my greenhouses be no one’s business but my own, I’ll thank you to know.” Later I hear him drive off in his new Ferrari.

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