It was he who last year decided to hold a ceremony in the Abbey to celebrate Europe Day, with a rather embarrassing service
Lord God our Father,He seems to be up to his old tricks, by proposing a memorial to Sir Edward Heath.
we affirm our commitment to the European Union
as a force for good in your world.
Guide us, we pray, by your Spirit;
give us wisdom, courage, and hope,
that we may serve you in the cause of justice and friendship,
and remain united in your peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
"Although he and Edward Heath were on the opposite side of many political arguments, they were both of that remarkable generation that served in the Second World War and continued to devote their lives to the service of their nation and of the world. It is fitting that we should honour them."That Heath lied, dissimulated and practised deception on this land in order to get us into the EEC/Common Market as it was then is well known. So why should this fellow, this man who would prefer the Councils of foreign potentates rather than his own people be so honoured?
Now if all former Prime Ministers were to be so honoured I would have no complaint. But what puts Heath above such figures as Wilson, Macmillan, Douglas Home and Eden?
