BBC Obituary (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/443009.stm) On loosing the leadership to Thatcher:
A junior colleague named Margaret Thatcher surprised everyone by trouncing Heath in the first round of the ensuing leadership contest. What followed was called the longest sulk in modern politics.

Over the years, he attacked almost all her policies and when she, too, was eventually deposed, his satisfaction was evident.
