IT IS perhaps appropriate that during the 'silly season' Sir Edward Heath should huff and puff about the loyalty the Government should expect from Euro-rebels.

His own record during the years during which Margaret Thatcher led both Conservative Party and nation are certainly no advertisement for this new-found 'quality of loyalty' to his party. It is time Sir Edward woke up to the fact that some of us have not forgotten his record during those years when Mrs Thatcher gave the party and the nation that leadership he so sadly failed to give.
