To encourage distrust in mainstream politicians and "the establishment", thereby undermining democratic stability. If you think they're all a bunch of reptiles, why bother voting for them, why not spend your time listening to David Icke/RT instead?
But Heath is not a politician whose legacy is particularly pivotal in the present situation. In fact he's among the politicians who don't really get remembered very much at all. Surely there are more visible pillars of our democratic legacy the discrediting of whom would create far greater damage.

I doubt that the Russian regime would have come up with the idea of Icke targeting Heath, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were happy to encourge his general drivel and support of RT.


Now his wife has died at the age of 54, and he's blaming the police.

...Heath, on the other hand, gave the impression of being, and probably was, simply a cold fish lizard.
Fixed that for you.

He was a strong supporter of the European Communities, and after winning the decisive vote in the House of Commons by 336 to 244, he led the negotiations that culminated in Britain's entry into the European Communities on 1 January 1973. He served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1970 to 1974.

Sure. But even during the hight of the Brexit campaign, he was neither dragged into the mud by one side nor placed on a pedestal by the other. Maybe we heard occasional quotes and references. But nothing very profound and nothing that really swung opinions. Destroying Heath will not destroy the EU.

Re: Edward Heath allegations: has David Icke gone mainstream?

Another case of a live individual facing historical abuse allegations where the police's approach is being questioned. It doesn't seem surprising, if they're so enthusiastic in going after allegations about dead men.

The harshest lesson of all: How a popular teacher lost his job and good name when he was accused of sex abuse by a boy he'd never met in a harrowing two-year ordeal

"...
a case driven by a police force apparently determined to build a case against him...

He says: 'Two hundred years ago if you were a criminal, they'd paint the word "criminal" on your forehead. 'Now, due to the internet, you just need to be accused of a crime to be for ever branded.' ...

Then there is Warr's concern that Suffolk police officers effectively 'canvassed' for evidence to build a case against him. ...

Most of all, however, he believes that our system of criminal justice has been seized by a collective madness following the exposure of Jimmy Savile, and that the innocent are paying the price..."

Re: Edward Heath allegations: has David Icke gone mainstream?

More craziness on this general theme.

Abuse probe farce: 'Fantasist' who claimed she was raped by an MP she had 'never met' is named as a special witness for the child sex inquiry

She seems to be a forceful and articulate personality, judging from Twitter.

Is, or was, managing a bookies according to this 2015 report.

Really? He committed treason by joining the common market. He did so without even having a referendum.
Not according to what I remember from my 1970s economics and politics O-level[*].

Parliamentary sovereignty in the United Kingdom

Of course, as Cromwell well knew, the "traitor" is the one with the smaller army...

[*] The subsequent collapse of the British education system means this is at about the same level as a current PPE.

Re: Edward Heath allegations: has David Icke gone mainstream?

I see Icke is now making daily videos of mostly drivel. He only ever claims he has “been saying it for 30 years”..

I dont know why he even gets airtime on BBC as this just fuels is conspiracy nonsense.

BTW how can a lizard be a peadophile ?
