Lies of Longleat

Posted: May 13th, 2020

THE recent death of the Marquess of Bath inspired FRANK THORNE to recall one of his great Daily Mirror scoops.

Frank said: “The recent death from coronavirus of Alexander Thynn, the 7th Marquess of Bath, came as a shock to me and it brought back memories of the time soon after he inherited the title as the new Lord Bath. The eccentric hippie artist announced at the time that he would not be talking to the Press for three years.”

“Well, he broke his self-imposed rule when I told him that a manager at his Longleat Safari Park was selling rhesus moneys for live experimentation and vivisection.”
