She wriggled her way first towards the Prime Minister, kissed him on the cheek, then turned towards Kissinger and after swaying her hips a few more limes, dropped herself into his lap. Kissinger did not show the least sign of embarrassment. He was. on the contrary, all smiles and started to chat with the lady in a most friendly manner.
