Edward Heath: of course the PM was a paedophile – he’s dead

WAS former Prime Minister Edward Health a paedophile? Did he rape children? Well, he is dead (the former Tory MP died in 2005) so we can all pile in with an opinion. Who needs facts, proof or to navigate any bariers to jusice when you have the police and media so keen to give the corpse a kicking?

Wiltshire police wants you call in if you ever met ‘Ted’:

“Sir Edward Heath has been named in relation to offences concerning children. He lived in Salisbury for many years and we would like to hear from anyone who has any relevant information that may assist us in our enquiries or anyone who believes they may have been a victim.”

Believe they have been a victim? Tell the police and they will investigate the contents of your thoughts. And you will be beleived. For instance,  LBC news announces that Ted is guilty:

 “Ted Heath Child Sex Victims Appeal By NSPCC”

LBC looks at the hard facts:

“Sir Edward, who was prime minister from 1970 to 1974, never married and there has been speculation about his personal life over the years.”

Never married, eh? If you want proof that man is good with kids, look at his ring finger; spot a band on it and know you’re in the presence of a trusted sort, a regular Fred West .

The BBC has a list of investigations in which Heath figures:

Operation Midland: The BBC understands Sir Edward is being looked at as part of the operation examining claims that boys were abused by a group of powerful men at locations across southern England and in London in the 1970s and 1980s. It has focused on the Dolphin Square estate in Pimlico, south-west London.

Operation Whistle: The States of Jersey Police has confirmed Sir Edward forms part of its investigation into historical allegations of abuse. It says some of the allegations relate to abuse “within institutions or by people of public prominence”.

Operation Hydrant: A nationally co-ordinated exercise to collate all allegations of historical abuse involving high profile-figures. The operation has been notified of Sir Edward being named in connection with an allegation of sexual assault in the 1960s.

Is that all just the three big investigations?

How many police and raking over the muck? The BBC , again:

Five police forces are investigating claims of historical child sexual abuse involving former PM Sir Edward Heath. The Met, Wiltshire, Kent, Jersey and Hampshire forces are conducting separate inquiries into the late MP.

A mere five police forces are on it! Why so many? Are they all going to point the finger at each other?

Tom Watson MP: “I have referred two allegations regarding Edward Heath to the police”

Can’t Watson just show us some proof? Name and shame! Publish and be damned! Can a Watson nudge, wink and puff of the chest be enough to damn the dead?

The Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation, which operates the museum at Arundells, his home in Salisbury, said it welcomed the investigation.
“We wholeheartedly believe [it] will clear Sir Edward’s name and we will co-operate fully with the police in their enquiries,” a spokesman said.

Can his name ever be cleared once it is sullied by the shout of “paedo!”?
