Wise little rhyme of the time

Sir -- I write from some experience of the so-called Profumo scandal and Christine Keeler which toppled the Macmillan government. I recall a verse which appeared in one of the daily newspapers, to wit:

"What on earth have you done, said Christine You've wrecked the whole Party machine, To lie in the nude, is not at all rude, But to lie in the House is obscene".
