Editorial comments:

Mike Love was MT's agent in Finchley. Stories that Michael Heseltine was facing discontent in his constituency had featured prominently in the press between Howe's resignation on 1 Nov and his resignation speech on 13 Nov, as had counter stories that CCO was interfering in order to make trouble for him. Read all documents from the 1990 release of MT's party and personal papers.
