Ted Heath: LOL!

Inquiries will focus on whether Wilts police acted improperly when a probe said to involve the politician was dropped in the ’90s. They will establish whether a case against a woman accused of running a brothel was dropped when she made claims about Heath.

But investigators will also seek to unearth the truth about rumours that bachelor Heath committed underage sex offences.

Heath, a classical music buff, was Conservative Party leader between 1965 and 1975. He moved to a home near Salisbury Cathedral, Wilts, in 1985 and lived there until his death.

The police spokesman, outside his former home, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who has any relevant information that may assist us in our inquiries or anyone who bel-ieves they may have been a victim.”

Heath’s sexuality was shrouded in mystery. He never married and was presumed to be a closet homosexual or asexual by many who knew him.

He entertained gay pals at his home in his twilight years and spent the months before his death attended by a young man.

In 2007, Brian Coleman, a gay ex-Tory member of the London Assembly, alleged police knew Heath was “cottaging” in public toilets with young men in the 1950s. He claimed officers warned Heath to stop seeking out anonymous sex partners to save his career.

Coleman said gays “ran” the Tory Party in London for years, suggesting Heath may have been protected. Since Heath’s death, rumours have spread he targeted underage boys.

Claims have come to the attention of authorities on Jersey, where wealthy Heath often docked his yacht Morning Cloud. Like Heath, Savile was a regular visitor to the Channel Island, where the Haut de la Garenne children’s home was said to have supplied victims to sex fiends. Campaigner Carrie Modral, of the Jersey Care Leavers Association, said of Heath: “It’s said that boys would be taken from the home to parties on his yacht.” ...

The Sun.

I know it's the 'silly season', but even I have my limits.
