Lord Bonkers' Diary: Assuming the worst

I look out across Rutland Water in the twilight. Someone has lit a bonfire on one of the islands and is desperately waving his arms and shouting for rescue.

The telephone rings. It is someone from the Deputy Prime Minister’s office asking if I have seen Clegg.

“The last time I saw him he was swimming away from my boathouse and a baying mob of students and civil libertarians” I tell them. “I am afraid we must assume the worst.”

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