Christine Keller, the call girl involved in an affair with the Minister of War John Profumo during the early 1960s has died aged 75 has died after a long illness. The scandal cost Profumo his job, caused the death of Stephen Ward a friend and artist to the aristocracy and the Royal Family.
Eventually the scandal, involving a Russian emigre’ and a shooting brought down the Conservative government in 1964.
Younger readers won’t have heard about this, but it was a real headline scandal that went on for months at the time.

No idea what he saw in her!

They tried to cover it up as a sex scandal, rather than spying. Better to be caught with your trousers down rather than giving away state secrets etc etc. Not good for the Secretary of State for War to be taken in so easily by a spy, cost him his job and the Conservatives the next election. I mean, how could you trust them?

And nothings changed wink.gif

Oh, and it's Christine Keeler smile.gif

Profumo was truly repentant and devoted the rest of his life to charitable endeavours unlike politicians that get caught these days. They lack any sort of sense of honour. This prick Green is the latest man with no honourable intent, just a sense of lie enough and you'll believe your own lies. The police are just as bad in this sordid affair.

Keeler's 'partner in crime' Mandy Rice Davies from Pontiets in South Wales became a successful businesswoman but died a long time ago.
