How the English Establishment Framed Stephen Ward by @stephenwardbook #amreading #tbr

This period of Christine Keeler's life was one of the few times when she seemed to have enough money to enjoy herself. Life was a continuous party, either at her flat, or in the pubs and clubs of the West End. The agent John Kennedy remembers bumping into her one day outside her Dolphin Square flat. "She asked me in. I walked into this apartment and I'd not seen anything like it in my life before. Apparently what had happened was this: Christine had an Italian boyfriend who was insanely jealous. He had to go away for ten days and he didn't trust her at all. So he locked her up in her own flat. But he first filled it with things from Fortnum's. This is what I saw when I first walked in. Cases of champagne stacked halfway to the ceiling, food hampers everywhere. Jars of caviar. Bowls of fruit. It was amazing.

'Anyway, Christine couldn't stand it any longer than two days. She felt she was going mental. So she called from the window and someone found the porter to let her out. I met her as she was coming back from buying some clothes. She looked terrific - black gown, big black hat, jewellery. And after showing me all this food and booze, she said, "I've got an idea. Let's have a bath together and drink some champagne."

'I said, "That's a great idea." So she filled the bath and got a nice bucket and put a bottle of champagne in it. Then she went into the bathroom and I started to take my jacket off and she said, "oh, no. Not like that." And then she jumped into the bath with everything still on, her black hat, her dress, her shoes, everything. And she said, "Anyone can have a bath together in the nude. This is much more fun. Come on!"
