  • Description

    British society has changed in the ten years since John Profumo resigned as Secretary of War after admitting his relationship with a model, Miss. Christine Keeler.

    Pornography is sold more openly, sex is portrayed more explicitly on screen and stage and Britain has acquired a reputation for being "permissive".

    What now do the British people think of the resignations of Lord Jellicoe, Leader of the House of Lords and Minister for the Civil Service, and Lord Lambton, Under Secretary of State for the Royal Air Force after admissions that they had been involved with call girls.

    Tim Arlott went to a London suburb to ask local residents their opinion. Are British politicians still expected to have the highest standards of moral behaviour, even when no security risks are involved?"
    Or is a politician's private life his own, provided his activities do not affect his job?
    Opinion in this suburb, and probably in the country top, seems to be divided.
