Lord Bonkers' Diary: Ming and sock suspenders

One of the saddest thing about the fall of my old friend Sir Menzies Campbell was the opprobrium that was heaped upon him for wearing sock suspenders. Our American cousins call them "sock garters", but they are an altogether more substantial proposition than the garters worn by the best sort of Wolf Cub (and, incidentally, by Matthew Taylor when he first entered the Commons).

It hardly need be said that I always sport sock suspenders myself. Not only is a gentleman not dressed without them: they can also be used to fire ink pellets to any part of the House if any of my fellow peers is Going On A Bit.

You may also enjoy Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
