The power of submission lies not in the ability to kneel before another, to give over one's body or in the wearing of a collar.
The power of submission can be found only in the heart of one who gives her love to another freely knowing what joy and pain will come of it - Roguer

Christine Keeler, the model embroiled in the 1963 Profumo affair, has died aged 75, her son has said.

Seymour Platt said Ms Keeler had been ill for several months with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

At the height of the Cold War, the then-teenager claimed she had an affair with Conservative cabinet minister John Profumo. She also claimed to be in a relationship with a Russian diplomat - Eugene Ivanov, an assistant naval attaché at the Soviet Embassy - at the same time.

Mr Profumo was forced to resign after lying about the affair to Parliament and the scandal is considered to have contributed to the fall of the Macmillan government.

Hayden Haitana, the expat Kiwi trainer linked to the Fine Cotton scandal, has died in South Australia aged 72.

Haitana was at the epicentre of Australia's most infamous betting plunge, where the under-performing Fine Cotton was substituted by the better-credentialled Bold Personality for a race at Brisbane's Eagle Farm in 1984.

Bold Personality had been painted and daubed with hair dye in a bid to resemble Fine Cotton, who had been backed heavily to win.

Stewards uncovered the ruse soon after the ring-in returned to scale after being first past the post.
