What a TASS man said about Ted Heath
07 September, 2017
• RECENT news of former British prime minister Edward Heath’s sexuality and TASS reminded me of the occasion in the 1970s when I asked a friend, who was working for the TASS news agency in Dartmouth Park at that time, exactly what he had heard about Edward Heath’s sexuality.
You see, I thought that if anybody knew it would be the Soviets hence the question to my friend. And my friend answered me with a single word – “asexual”. I was no admirer of Ted and his Conservative politics, and the answer satisfied me.
