Sponsoring the girl

Keith Miller was a favourite among girls. 

In 1956, he sponsored a British emigrant under the ‘Bring Out a Briton’ scheme in Australia. The beneficiary was the receptionist at the hotel where the Australians had stayed. A year later she arrived in Sydney and it was Miller who arranged a flat for her there. 

Not everyone believed him. They found another angle to this story. Miller said that he was merely 'sponsoring her', to the disbelief of many.
