Lord Bonkers' Diary: “I Made Eastleigh Happen”

The new issue of Liberator is with subscribers, or at least on its way, so it is time to spend another week at the demi-paradise that is Bonkers Hall in Rutland.


A package arrives in the post. I find it to contain a rather stylish badge, which I consider wearing while I go about my business on the old demesne. Then I read what it says – “I Made Eastleigh Happen” – and ring for my secretary.

“Could you forward this to Dartmoor or Wormwood Scrubs or wherever the poor fellow is at the moment?” I ask him. “It was obviously meant for Huhne.”

Lord Bonkers was Liberal MP for Rutland South-West 1906-10.
