After married Profumo lied about his seedy liaisons with Keeler to parliament and was forced to fall on his sword, Prime Minister Harold Macmillan got top judge Lord Denning to launch an inquiry into the sordid affair. Denning concluded: "There is a great deal of evidence that there is a group of people who hold parties in private of a perverted nature. At some of these parties, the man who serves dinner is nearly naked except for a small square lace apron round his waist such as a waitress might wear. He wears a black mask over his head with slits for eye-holes. He cannot therefore be recognised by any of the guests."
"Some reports stop there and say that nothing evil takes place. It is done as a comic turn and no more. This may well be so at some of the parties. But at others it is followed by perverted sex orgies: the man in the mask is a 'slave' who is whipped: that guests undress and indulge in sexual intercourse one with the other: and indulge in other sexual activities of a vile and revolting nature."
Denning interviewed many VIPs, including 'the man in the mask' himself whom he said was not a politician. Nonetheless, the good judge, true to his establishment friends, refused to name him. Since then a variety of famous names have been mooted, including a very senior aristocrat.
Posh osteopath Stephen Ward, who procured young women like Keeler and Rice Davies for his kinky rich and powerful mates, mysteriousy committed suicide after being put on trial for allegedly living off the immoral earnings of prostitutes. Yet he was rich and did not need the money. It is said, on good authority, that Ward, a regular guest at Cliveden, knew the identity of the 'man in the mask' and was about to reveal this to journalists before the British security services bumped him off, in time honoured fashion, to save the government and royal family.
The-Latest have printed an image (above) of the person who we think is 'the man in the mask'. Anyone who provides us with evidence that conclusively proves, to the satisfaction of our editors, that they know his name will immediately receive a large cash reward. CLUE: This high society cover-up is bigger than the original Profumo 'scandal' (and the 1989 film of the same name).
