Lord Bonkers' Diary: Meet the Impertinent Girls

Another week with Rutland's most celebrated peer draws to a close.


I have decided to dabble in popular music once again (my part in the phenomenon that was Rutbeat in the 1960s has yet to be fully chronicled) and am on the lookout for new talent to add to my stable of artistes.
