Lord Bonkers' Diary: Freddie, Fiona and four-cornered liberalism

Freddie, Fiona and four-cornered liberalism

To Westminster, where I run into Freddie and Fiona, who worked in the leader’s office before the general election. They tell me they are now running a think-tank “to promote four-cornered liberalism”.

Not recalling anything about them in the conversation of my old friend L.T. Hobhouse, I ask what these four corners are.

“Well,” replies Freddie, “there’s economic liberalism and… and… er…” “…the other three,” Fiona finishes triumphantly.

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