Christine Keeler Best Quotes

Christine Margaret Keeler (born 22 February 1942) is an English former model and showgirl. Her meeting at a dance-club with society osteopath Stephen Ward drew her into upper-class circles, and she became sexually involved with a married government minister John Profumo, as well as a Soviet diplomat, at the height of the Cold War. A shooting incident between two of her other lovers caused the press to investigate her, revealing that her affairs could be threatening national security. In the House of Commons, Profumo denied any improper conduct, but later admitted that he had lied. This incident discredited the Conservative government of Harold Macmillan in 1963, in what became known as the Profumo affair. Enjoy Christine Keeler’s best quotes below.
