Edwina Currie was a former British Member of Parliament who seduced ex-UK Prime Minister John Major. She published Currie's Diaries (1987-92) in 2002, in which she revealed her four year affair with Major. The news caused a media sensation.

While Curried said that Major had been "the love of her life", Major claimed that he was ashamed of the affair. Shortly after that, Currie promptly accused him of being "one of the less competent prime ministers." Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
