On the subject of Edward Heath and the reports today about his private life. I know a lot of Tories, and had chances to chat in private with Tories who were in a postion to know about Heath.
The general view that was conveyed to me was that "Yes, he probably was, but no, he never did".
I got the impression that he was wedded to his job and to politics and actually think he left a lasting legacy of which he can be proud. Let's remember him for that.
