The great witch hunt: 10 photos of Ted Heath looking like a paedophile
Ted Heath is the lastest dead notable to be dug up, beaten with sticks and labelled a paedophile. To help media better explain to today’s evidence-shy audience what a wong ‘un the former Prime Minister was, we’ve compiled a gallery of pictures. To go with the many nudge-nudge, w*nk-w*nk accounts of “unmarried sailor” Heath’s crimes that he refuses to contest or challenge (he’s dead – ed), here are photos that less hammer the final nail into his coffin as they do unpick them one by one so we can get at him and teach him a lesson he should never forget:
