Who remembers Ted Heaths boat or series of them known as Morning Cloud?
One sunk in 1974 with Heaths young 'godson' on board but no sign of Ted?
Did Teds boat conveniently turn turtle because his 'godson' was about to spill the beans?
The answer is we'll never know!
Or will we?
He didn't have any medical qualifications. He had connections with the boys' home and visited in order to satisfy his urges. David Steel's reaction is almost unbelievably naive - and he was Leader of the party. Most people might suspect something untoward if told that one of their middle-aged corpulent male MPs had visited a boys' home at night, taken inmates' pants down and spanked their arses.
I wonder if Smith claimed expenses for these arduous chores?
If he didn't have any medical qualifications, I can see how people assumed it was for his own "perverted amusement".
Rochdale inquiry: Cyril Smith 'a puppet master abuser'

The abuse inquiry is hearing allegations about abuse by Rochdale's former Liberal MP Cyril Smith
Cyril Smith treated a children's home as his "personal fiefdom" and abused residents for "perverted amusement", an inquiry heard.
Laura Hoyano, representing eight alleged victims, said Smith was a "puppet master" who escaped justice.
MI5 intelligence on the allegations "raises a spectre of collusion" over his activities, Ms Hoyano said.
The independent inquiry is examining the late MP's alleged abuse of young boys in Rochdale institutions.
A dossier of information on the Liberal MP was held by the security services and has been disclosed to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).
It is examining how Smith was able to carry out his alleged offences at a number of institutions, including the Cambridge House children's hostel and Knowl View residential school, where he was a governor.
On Monday, counsel to the inquiry Brian Altman QC, said Sir Norman Skelhorn - then Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) - claimed in 1970 a police investigation of Smith was unlikely to lead to a prosecution.
This was followed nine years later, Mr Altman said, when MI5 was informed the Rochdale Alternative Press (RAP) was told by Sir Norman's successor, Thomas Hetherington, there was no record of the 1970 case.
Referring to the claims, Ms Hoyano asked: "Was political pressure brought to bear upon the DPP from politicians and members of the Liberal Party from 1969 to 1970?
