In 1986, The People ran a story about an attempt to pressure Robert Maxwell into halting its coverage of the Harvey Proctor scandal.
A sinister caller threatened otherwise to reveal a relationship between Ghislaine Maxwell and the now 11th Duke of Rutland.
If the number of entries in Jeffrey Epstein's phone book is any indication as to the status of a politician, Peter Mandelson, with no fewer than 10 numbers, must have made it to the very top of the greasy pole.
Was he on speed dial?
Anthony Royle was MP for Richmond in Surrey, the home of Britain's infamous Elm Guest House child brothel until the year after it was raised by Met police.
His daughter Lucinda features in Epstein's telephone book ...
MP Shaun Woodward, who married into the Sainsbury dynasty, and his wife Camilla both appeared in Jeffrey Epstein's little black book.
Shaun sheepishly teamed up with Esther Rantzen of ChildLine, who jumped into bed with paedophile Nicholas Fairbairn.
Climate denier, paedophile apologist and Thatcher minister Nigel Lawson's son Dominic's wife Rosa Monckton also graced Epstein's list. Nigel's daughter Nigella was for many years girlfriend of Harvey 'Spanker' Proctor's IICSA QC Geoffrey Robertson.
The actor Nigel Havers is the son of Michael Havers. His step-daughter is Clare Bronfman, heavily implicated in the NIXVM cult. Her brother Edgar Jr. appears on Epstein's list. Edgar Sr. was director of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research.
Michael Jackson also features in Epstein's little black book. Almost certainly a paedophile, he was welcomed with open arms to Westminster by Greville Janner, who should have stood trial for buggery, and Paul Boateng of Angel Rd. fame.
Nicholas Fairbairn, Thatcher protégé, seducer of Esther Rantzen and patron of the Elm Guest House child brothel, was a nasty rapist who defiled the daughter of his close friend Robert Henderson.
Fairbairn's daughter Charlotte appears on Epstein's list.
Err, are you getting the picture yet, or should I continue?
Sir Anthony Bamford, Tory donor, friend of Blair, BigEars and Hague, and JCB boss, also loaned money to Jeffrey Archer, one of Harvey Proctor's shirt shop donors. He is one of several on the list with links to children's charities.
Next up: Churchill grandson and Serco CEO Rupert Soames, brother of Wardrobe-with-Little-Key Nicholas Soames, a Harvey Proctor supporter. Nicholas warned Lady Diana to stop meddling in a controversy over landmines. He and Boateng are directors at Aegis.
Fraudster Gerald Ronson and his wife Gail had several listings in Epstein's black book, although Gail denies having met him. Gerald - VP of NSPCC and friend of Greville Janner - is related to Leon Brittan of Barnes Common and Malcolm Cash-for-Access Rifkind of Dunblane.
Just a minute! Isn't that Mathew Freud, son of paedophile Clement Freud who was friend of the McCanns and Jeremy Thorpe, grandson of Sigmund and employee at Lord Bramall's Dorchester? Like Cyril Smith, nominated for a gong by the disgraced David Steel?
Ghislaine's best friend is Ariadne Calvo-Platero, daughter of Lord Beaumont who had strong links to the Royals, PIE's Peter Righton, John D Stamford of EGH-linked Spartacus, Jeremy Thorpe, Antony Grey, Albany Trust, Eton Mission ... and Jeffrey Epstein.
Ronald Perelman is a Trump friend and the ex-husband of Ellen Barkin who just today claimed Ghislaine Maxwell is Epstein's pimp. More recently, Ellen was all set to marry @InquiryCSA's disgraced lawyer Ben Emmerson, colleague of Amal Clooney.
Milly Soames is good friends with Alice Prochaska, mother of Elisabeth Prochaska, deputy to Ben Emmerson, lead barrister at the @InquiryCSA child abuse inquiry and erstwhile hubby-to-be of Ms. Barkin, who both quit the inquiry under a shroud of mystery.
A gaggle of giggles: David Blaine, magician, Epstein contact and friend of Uri Geller, was present at the Palace of Westminster when Greville Janner, Peter Bottomley and Paul Boateng welcomed Michael Jackson to the mother of parliaments.
Ghislaine Maxwell was so close to Jeffrey Epstein, she didn't need an entry in his Little Black Book. But did you know that her father Robert was a director of AGB Research together with Michael Havers, brother of the Sloshed Butler, and Ronald Waterhouse's buddy Peter Cooper?
Former Richmond councillor, Thatcher-era MP, Little Willy Whitelaw's deputy at the Northern Ireland Office and member of the CoE General Synod, William van Straubenzee was named in child abuse files unearthed by the Cabinet Office in July 2015 linking him to Kincora.
David MacMillan, husband to Bella Pollen and grandson of Harold MacMillan, was the subject of a light-hearted plot to usurp Ed Vaizey leaked by WikiLeaks which illustrates how strings are pulled behind the scenes in Britain.
From 1981 until 1989, von Kotze worked for Hogg Robinson where Timothy Royle, brother of Richmond MP Anthony Royle, was appointed CEO in 1980, leaving in 1981 to lead a management buyout of the dubious Control Risks Group called on to search for Maddy.
Conrad Black, convicted fraud and former owner of the Telegraph and Jerusalem Post, was recently pardoned by his friend Trump because they were old buddies and Black had written nice things about Trump.
Andrew Neil, Sunday Times editor from 1983 to 1994, seen below crucifying PM hopeful Bumbling Boris in a recent TV interview, owns a multi-milion condo in Trump Towers.
Lulu Hutley, Princess Eugenie's godmother and friend of Sarah Ferguson, hit the news when she lashed out cruelly at a hunt saboteur.
When not in riding attire, she likes to hug male strippers.
Alistair McAlpine, Tory treasurer and Thatcher's jolly bagkeeper, was at the centre of the child abuse scandal in the UK and the subject of a libel case against Sally Bercow:
Why is Lord McAlpine trending? *innocent face*
Rupert Murdoch, the puppeteer and puller of strings in British politics, phones Trump every week to talk strategy, and even sat in on Gove's interview with Trump. His paper, the Sun, called for an end to @InquiryCSA soon after a private meeting with May.
Menage à quatre:
Honest, guv, we're just good friends ... aren't we Emma?
In 1979, Jamie Sainsbury, son of grocer and Thatcher's minister Tim Sainsbury, goose-stepped through Oxford. In the 80s, his mother Susan was involved with Mainwaring-Knight. Both Robert Butler-Sloss and Shaun Woodward married into the Sainsbury clan.
Fancy a cuppa, Love?
Andrew's twilight visit to Courtney Love.
And did you notice the little arrow in Courtney Love's entry pointing to Dana? Well, that is Dana Giacchetto, an investor in Digital Entertainment Network, the company in the Bryan Singer lawsuits, where Singer and other investors were charged with molesting underage boys.
Jeffrey A. Sachs was a close associate of Dana Giacchetto and, alongside Nicole Junkermann, is the second person linked to Epstein who has ties with healthcare consultancies.
The sex-slaver NXIVM cult held seminars on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island in hope of recruiting him into the organisation. Branson couldn't remember them ... but others did.

Fly Virgin without hesitation, deviation or repetition! With David Frost, Uri Geller Freud and Clement Freud ...
All-round nasty Toby Daniel Moorsom Young, taker of illegal drugs and Groucho Club expellee, claims never to have been within 100 yards of Epstein, and says they move in completely separate world's.
O really?!
Like father, like son:
Although Dominic Lawson doesn't appear worthy of his own entry, he does appear as Dominic under Rosa Monckton. Interesting that both Dominic and his daddy Nigel sang from the same hymn sheet when it came to denigrating any inquiry into child sexual abuse.
Current affairs presenter Jonathan Dimbleby is another figure in the public eye who has always been quick off the mark to criticise coverage of CSA in the media. Instances include the Newsnight report on Savile and the famous Cameron interview on This Morning.

The Rutlands have a long relationship with Harvey Proctor. The Duke was both the subject of blackmail and gave Whacko work and a flat at Belvoir Castle. The 'Nick' trial utterly exposed Harvey Proctor, buddy of Jonathan Denby whose cousin Barbara Hewson attended proceedings.
David Granby is another of Jeffrey Epstein's contacts.
But hold on: Isn't that just another name for the Duke of Rutland?
He must have been very important to the man Ghislaine procured young females for. And wasn't Ghislaine photographed in compromising positions with the Duke!
Sarah Ferguson takes up considerable space in Jeff's little black book along with the Duke of Rutland. Fergie was involved with producing The Young Victoria (2009), which was filmed at Belvoir castle when failed shirt-shop Proctor worked there as tour guide and general factotum.
