In an interview with the Financial Times, Lord Heseltine, a prominent figure in both the governments of Margaret Thatcher and John Major, serving as Deputy Prime Minister and First Secretary of State confirmed that he donates to the Scottish party.
He told the FT that the Conservatives are now on a path back to political respectability after the “endless photo opportunity” of Johnson’s premiership, and that Rishi Sunak has shown a seriousness of intent in tackling problems, including striking a deal with the EU on Northern Ireland’s trading regime.
Heseltine, who says his pro-EU university speeches receive “rapturous applause” claims that the new Conservative government has put ‘the adults back in charge’ but accepted that It may be too late with Labour so far ahead in the polls.
When asked by The FT if there was a chance that Britain could rejoin the EU he said: “I wish I wasn’t 90, because I would throw myself into the campaign,” When you’re 90, that’s always part of the agenda. But I think the answer is yes.”
