I believe my mum met Ted Heath when she was trying to get a housing transfer to where we currently live. He was our local MP and took up her case personally with the local authorities to ensure she got the move she needed ( she was really ill and wanted to be closer to her parents).
From what I recall mum said he was a lovely man.
Oh how little your mum knew. Just don't ask about the kids that Savile used to round up for Heath's weekends away.
