Those Asquiths and Bonham Carters in full

To mark the centenary of Herbert Asquith’s accession as British prime minister, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography has set up a page on him and his descendants.

But there is no mention of a character to whom Lord Bonkers often refers: Violent Bonham Carter, the East End gangster.

And his lordship also insists that the correct plural is Bonhams Carter - along the lines of courts martial, I suppose.

Thanks to Lib Dem Voice.
