George Osborne says of Natalie Rowe and William Sinclair that “I met them together occasionally in the autumn of 1993”. She says he paid her £350 for kinky coke and domination sessions. In S & M games it is the practice to agree a “safeword” which is
“…a code word or series of code words that are sometimes used in BDSM for a submissive (or “bottom”) to unambiguously communicate their physical or emotional state to a dominant (or “top”), typically when approaching, or crossing, a physical, emotional, or moral boundary. Some safewords are used to stop the scene outright, while others can communicate a willingness to continue, but at a reduced level of intensity. Safewords are usually agreed upon before playing a scene by all participants.”
Natalie Rowe says Osborne’s agreed safeword with her was “Louise”. The question which many are asking is why “Louise”? What was the provenance of “Louise”? Guido draws co-conspirators attention to the lyrics of “Liza and Louise”, a punk rock single by NO-FX which was popular in S & M circles. It was released in 1992, the year before Osborne says he met Natalie. As this is a family blog we’re not going to go into the lyrics in great detail.
