I AM bewildered by the judgement of the media, apparently shared by your political editor, Stephen Castle, that Michael Heseltine by his evidence to the Scott inquiry has enhanced his reputation and his chances of eventually leading the Conservative Party. Surely by allowing himself, against his own better judgement, to be persuaded to sign a document that he knew to be wrong he made himself more culpable than the others. He certainly was not showing qualities of leadership.
