Lord Bonkers' Diary: The Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey Railway

Lord Bonkers continues his survey of Liberal Democrat prospects at the coming general election.

Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey

Whilst our own Danny Alexander is known elsewhere as a champion of austerity, things look rather different when looked at from his own constituency.

There is not a corner of this chunk of the Highlands that has failed to benefit from government largesse. There you will find ski lifts, subsidised fuel and the electric broadband internet. Above all there is the new railway with its solid gold carriages.

Its name, if I recall correctly, is the Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey Railway. Isn't that a coincidence?

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