This is fun

For women of my generation and younger, the slut-shaming of Keeler,

The phrase used in its literal meaning.

Christine Keeler was indeed horizontally tangoed for money and was vilified for it.

Obviously an editing mistake at The Guardian because who expects clarity of language there?

  1. Too much ‘clarity of language’? How about this:
    as implacable in the historiography of the 1960s as Lady Chatterley and the Beatles

  2. I think, prior to the BBC serial, most people had forgotten about the Profumo Affair, so not as implacable in the historiography of the 1960s as Lady Chatterley and the Beatles. I guess we’re only seeing it now because all the principals who could complain have died. Watching it now, I do admit to being surprised that it necessitated a report by the Master of the Rolls. They took such things a lot more seriously then.

    I haven’t seen the prog but the makers seemed very clear that it was an attempt to deify Keeler and present her as the real victim.
    As opposed to, say, Ward who killed himself, but he was a man so **** him.

  4. I’m really sorry, but why does both her name, Rhiannon Lucy Coslett, and her byline photo make me want punch something?
    Is it a requirement that all “journalists” who “write” for the Grauniad possess silly names and look utterly loopy?

    “Deify” – Where have we seen that before?

    Oh, yes “the msm seemed very clear that it was an attempt to deify Smollett and present him as the real victim.”
