The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom signs this spades playing card, in blue ink
Playing Card signed: "Edward Heath/August 1990" in blue ink on verso. 3½x2¼ 5 of spades playing card. Sir Edward Richard George Heath (1916-2005) was a Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1970 to 1974 and Leader of the Conservative Party from 1965 to 1975. In 1971 he signed the treaty bringing Britain into the European Community and resigned as Prime Minister after trying in vain to form a coalition with the Liberal Party; regardless losing a second general election in October that year, Heath vowed to continue as leader of his party. In February 1975, however, his former Education Secretary Margaret Thatcher challenged and defeated Heath to win the leadership. After his return to the backbenches, he became an active critic of Thatcher's policies as leader and, from 1979, as Prime Minister. Heath remained a backbench MP until retiring in 2001, serving as the Father of the House for his last nine years in Parliament. In August 2015 police started investigating multiple claims of historic child sexual abuse by Heath. Fine condition.
