Lord Bonkers' Diary: Curled up with the Wise Woman of Wing

The Library at Bonkers Hall is a place of wonder, with many volumes unknown anywhere else. And, incidentally, there really was a Wise Woman of Wing.


What better, on a cold winter’s day, than curling up by the Library fire with a good book? My choice today is the new Almanac from the Wise Woman of Wing; I buy it for its herb lore and racing tips.

I turn eagerly to its predictions for 2019 to see how this Brexit hoo-hah will turn out, but find that foreseeing this is beyond even her powers.

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