Lord Bonkers' Diary: Floreat Estonia

The new issue of Liberator was waiting for me when I got home. Which means it is time for another week with Rutland's most celebrated fictional peer.


Lunch with a Conservative acquaintance who, being of a moderate bent, is not happy with the way things are going in his party.

“When Cameron came on the scene I had high hopes of him: all those huskies he kissed at the North Pole and that windmill on his roof. Now it’s all changed. Did you hear that he has asked five Estonians to write our next manifesto?”

I agree this does not sound a good idea, pointing out that we Liberal Democrats once entrusted the task to Lembit Opik – with the most unhappy of results.

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