The first of three quotes

Many thanks to Sabah Batul, for nominating me for the Three Day Three Quotes challenge which requires me to post a quote on three consecutive days. I see a lot of quotes these days on Social Media so it is hard to find something that stands out and that is easily memorable.

Mandy Rice-Davies (1964)

I read recently about the death of Mandy Rice-Davies in December 2014. Together with her friend Christine Keeler, she was involved in the Profumo affair of 1963.

“He would, wouldn’t he?”


was her widely reported response when asked in Marylebone court, “Do you know Lord Astor has made a statement to the police saying that these allegations of yours are absolutely untrue?”  The quote was sometimes shortened with the acronym MRDA. (Mandy Rice-Davies applies.)

My nominations are belated because I forgot to put them in before I posted this! Apologies:
