Of course Ted Heath was an old queen

It's hardly news that former PM Ted Heath was gay. But the papers have put on their mock horror masks at Brian Coleman's piece in The New Statesman in which he "reveals" that Ted cruised for sex with other men - I should be sorry to hear that he did not. Who would wish a celibate, emotionally arid life on anyone? Coleman, the chairman of the London Assembly, writes: "It was certainly not a secret that he was an old queen. I have been told he was warned about his behaviour [in the '50s] and then stopped."

Readers of Arcati will doubtless recall my story of Oct 31 2006 - click here.

Next week: our astounding revelations about Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar and Oscar Wilde. Oh, and about Tom Cruise, too! :-)))
Keep your finger on the pulse!

Tom Cruise? Certainly not ....

At last a small touch of sympathy, even if it's just for decoration. Pity that old Ted is too dead to enjoy it.

Dreadful. The worst of all is that it seems the public mentality hasn't changed much in the U.K. since the fifties. And I fear it hasn't changed AT ALL in Arcatiland!
But let's not despair of humanity. :-)

I do believe Dinu has accidentally hit concordance with Arcati. Whatever next?

Must be a misunderstanding... :-)
