1. Holding pattern [Free Issue]
... publicly set upon by Sir Nicholas at the Palace's apparent bidding does not set a good precedent. In 2008 Princess Diana's inquest heard a witness testify that in 1997 the Prince of Wales's ex-wife received a private telephone call from her public critic, Sir Nicholas Soames, warning her darkly that 'accidents can happen'. No doubt an unfortunate misunderstanding. Profumo performer A recently declassified memo, recording a telephone call made from CIA Director John McCone to Secretary of State Dean Rusk in July 1963, gives us a hitherto unavailable glimpse of the web that surrounded the hapless Stephen Ward as the Profumo affair came to a head.77 75 <http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3263475/Bishop-abused- ...

... are spent sketching the picture of Wilson as deluded, with a highly unusual (almost subservient) relationship with his own PA, Lady Falkender, and erratic judgement in general. However: on pp. 74-75 we learn that, yes, there were hidden microphones in 10 Downing Street. Apparently Harold Macmillan asked MI5 to install them 'during the Profumo scandal'. They remained in situ until 1977 when they were quietly removed. One reading of this would be as follows: 10 Attlee, too, went full term in 1950, and almost lost. In 1963 the US (specifically the CIA) lost patience with the British old boy network running MI6, following the imprisonment of ...

... fear of the 'communist threat'. The Radcliffe Tribunal had reported in 1962, devoting a whole section to the Civil Service staff associations and trade unions, expressing concern at the number of communists and communist sympathisers holding positions in the unions;116 and his administration was being afflicted by the espionage scandals of George Blake and Vassell – and the Profumo Affair which Macmillan apparently believed was part of a communist conspiracy the bring him down.117 Catholic Action?

The US Ambassador attended the Parliamentary debate on the latter in person and cabled back to Washington that MacMillan had become 'an electoral liability....his replacement cannot be too long delayed....’ MacMillan eventually gave way to the Earl of Home (whom he favoured over R.A. Butler) in October 1963 ...

... debacle.’ The most significant figure he employed at Queen was Robin Douglas-Home, nephew of Sir Alec Douglas-Home. Robin Douglas-Home, who counted himself a friend of both Frank Sinatra and John F. Kennedy, appears to have had access to quite a considerable variety of interesting information. On 31 July 1962 Queen published the first piece of gossip linking John Profumo to Christine Keeler and Eugene Ivanov. It is not known who supplied Queen and/or Robin Douglas-Home with this information, but its appearance was a significant part of the events that led to the collapse of the MacMillan government.1 0 The career and political inclinations of Major Oliver Smedley have already been noted. During the negotiations to purchase the ...

... few months of the relationship Colin was still in jail, doing the final year of six he served for a manslaughter he didn't do, and Steve, who had made the initial contact with him via Fred, was doing the corresponding (which in those days meant letters). Then Anthony Summers invited Steve to co-author a book on the Profumo Affair this meant serious money, and Steve and I were both poor and Steve began working with Summers and I took over the correspondence with Wallace and Holroyd. A couple of months later I wrote Lobster 11, an account, really, of our attempts to understand what Colin and Fred had told us about Northern Ireland and covert operations ...

... , (London: Macmillan 1961) This was an insider's account of the dramatis personae, frank but excessively respectful of the decency of their motives. Margaret George, The Hollow Men, (London: Leslie Frewin, 1965) Was a more detached but damning indictment, and she names the guilty names. But by this time, the Profumo scandal (not coincidentally at Cliveden) and Wilson's Labour election victory in 1963 had displaced concern with raking over the past. 'Appeasement' became just another topic of debate among historians, and the central question of who was actually making foreign policy in Britain was lost sight of. From the 1950s onwards, distraction was provided with the revelations ...

He had a lengthy record of interventions on matters concerning sexuality, voted against homosexual decriminalisation in the House of Lords and conducted the cover-up inquiry in the Profumo case. [12] In Thatcher& Sons: A Revolution in Three Acts (2006) Simon Jenkins comments that one effect of the Thatcher, Major and Blair years has been the running down of local and regional democracy and the enormous growth in the unelected power of the Treasury.

... there are unfortunate individuals such as Captain Robert Nairac (simply described as 'army officer') and Stephen Ward( 'osteopath and scapegoat'). The entry for the latter is one of the few where the author eschews the studied objectivity of the majority of the work, his final paragraph reading: 'Ward was in fact incidental to the Profumo episode: he was a sacrificial offering. The exorcism of scandal in high places required the façade of his conviction on vice charges.' The entries are scrupulously researched judging by the wealth of references on offer in the footnotes. These cover not simply books and journal articles, but also written, film and sound archives. There's also ...
