Mandy Rice-Davies RIP

Another death - this time of Mandy Rice-Davies, who was at the centre of the Profumo scandal in the early sixties. I was very interested in the whole story and carried a photo of her around with me for some time. Of course, she is now best remembered for her comment at the trial of osteopath Stephen Ward, when Lord Astor denied having an affair with her or even having met her: 'He would, wouldn't he.'
There are still unanswered questions from the whole scandal (as there clearly are from other Establishment scandals that have been covered up over the years). Here's an entry from my blog on March 10th, 2006, when John Profumo died, which attracted some interest from Profumo obsessives (see the comments).
