For what it's worth, I don't think he was a kiddy-fiddler, but two pieces of evidence - anecdotes told by a boatyard worker in Newhaven who used to crew for him, and the dreadful, awful, queer-camp decoration of his house in Salisbury - scream that Heath was certainly a Friend of Dorothy, though probably a non-playing member of the club from the 1960s.
So now that's over, let's get back to the senior Labour paedo still in Parliament, and more pertinently, the Chilcot report which is expected to condemn a former Prime Minister and his dags in a way that leaves the vague innuendo against the Grocer look like playground taunting.
There's nothing accidental about the release of the Heath story at this moment - Tom Watson, one of those behind it, is a candidate for Deputy Leader, and speculation is that he can least afford to bear the exposure at this time of the identity of Labour's still-active Parliamentary paedo. Let's have him named.
