The Edward Heath case reached its conclusion in October 2017 when, much to the dismay of his friends, a Wiltshire police report was released stating that - though no inference of guilt should be made from their conclusions - he would have been questioned under criminal caution about accusations of the sexual assault of five male minors and two male adults as the accusations met the legal threshold.

The trouble when someone is dead is that they can't answer the accusations, and so a stain is left on the character of Sir Edward whether he was guilty of anything or not.

The man in the crowd with the multicoloured mirrors on his hobnail boots

Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy working overtime

A soap impression of his wife which he ate and donated to the National Trust

 

So the first two lines are clearly a dirty rotten pickpocket but then it gets weird on the third line a-hard-days-night-john-3

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Never thought that myself. I've always read him as a sexual predator who uses the mirrors on his boots to look up women's skirts, with his hands thrust into his trouser pockets doing something equally naughty, while his eyes don't reveal what a pervert he really is.

Maybe that's just me, though...

I think it can be read both ways. Here's a nice interpretation:

Quoting Derek Taylor from here:

"'The Man in the crowd with multi-coloured mirrors on his hobnail boots' was form something I'd seen in a newspaper about a Manchester City soccer fan who had been arrested by the police for having mirrors on the toe caps of his shoes so that he could look up girls' skirts. We thought this was an incredibly complicated and tortuous way of getting a cheap thrill and so that became 'multi-coloured mirrors' and 'hobnail boots' to fit the rhythm. A bit of poetic license," adds Taylor. "The bit about 'lying with his eyes while his hand were working overtime' came form another thing I'd read where a man wearing a cloak and fake plastic hands, which he would rest on the counter of a shop while underneath the cloak he was busy lifting things and stuffing them in a bag around his waist.

"I don't know where the 'soap impression of his wife' came from but the eating of something and then donating it 'to the National Trust' came from conversation he'd had about the horrors of walking in public spaces on Merseyside, where you were always coming across the evidence of people having crapped behind bushes and in old air raid shelters. So to donate what you've eaten to the National Trust (a British organization with responsibilities for upkeeping countryside of great beauty) was what would now be known as 'defecation on common land owned by the National Trust.' When John put it all together, it created a series of layers of images. It was like a whole mess of colour," Taylor concludes.
