Mystery blonde at Bonkers House

Most literary scholars now accept that Nevill Holt in Leicestershire is the model for Bonkers Hall. And I have commented before on certain parallels between the careers of Lord Bonkers and Nevill Holt's current owner David Ross.

You may also recall that his lordship's diaries occasionally mention Bonkers House in Belgrave Square. Which makes the following news story all the more fascinating:

A millionaire Tory donor and close friend of David Cameron is to face police questioning within the next few days over a mysterious fracas involving a young Eastern European woman.

The blonde Lithuanian made an allegation of assault after calling police in the early hours of Friday to the Belgravia home of David Ross, co-founder of Carphone Warehouse.

The question now is whether Mr Ross owns an equivalent to Lord Bonkers' Highland home Brig o'Dread.

A cock up on the cut-and-paste front. Thanks.
