Lord Bonkers' Diary: A two-tier service?

The latest dispatch from the nation's most celebrated fictional peer. Lord Bonkers was Liberal MP for Rutland South West, 1906-10.


Do you remember Phil Willis’s delightful daughter? She was the young lady in the advertisement who had the internet projected on to her white dress. I thought that was a splendid idea and am sorry that it subsequently lost ground to the flat plasma screen.

Anyway, I learn today that Willis is in the soup for claiming for a flat where the young lady lived. I fear he is the author of his own misfortune as I put a perfectly serviceable solution to him some years ago. “Willis,” I said, “why don’t you get bunk beds? That way, your daughter can sleep in the lower bunk when she is there alone but move to the upper bunk when you are in Westminster on parliamentary business.”

Willis replied rather sniffily that it would be wrong to offer his daughter a two-tier service.
