Citações Edward Heath

„Everyone who is already here must be treated as equal before the law.“

—  Edward Heath
Leader of the Opposition, Interview with London Weekend Television's Man in the News (18 January 1970), quoted in The Times (19 January 1970), p. 1


„Benn, Shore and Foot were like the three witches in Macbeth.“

—  Edward Heath
Post-Prime Ministerial, ... In some darkened room of Transport House, on the very left of the building, they are busy boiling their own witches' brew. A dash of distortion here, an element of exaggeration there, all of course to be taken with a pinch of salt. And as they brew their myths, they delight in creating hubble, bubble, toil and trouble. ... [Benn] is probably the biggest bureaucrat and the wildest spendthrift that this country has ever known. But let us recognize the facts. Benn, Shore and Foot are using the Europe issue to brew up toil and trouble inside the Labour Party for their own ends. ...If there was a "No" vote in the referendum, we would find ourselves pulling out of Europe straight into the welcoming arms of the wild men of Labour's left. Speech to the Conservative Group for Europe in Central Hall, Westminster (19 April 1975), quoted in The Times (21 April 1975), p. 4

„We shall have a harder Christmas than we have known since the war.“

—  Edward Heath
Prime Minister, ibid. Reported in Time magazine (24 December 1973). It was spoken on television.
