Early Life

Early Political Career

1983 Conservative Party Leadership election

Leader of the Opposition

As soon as he was elected leader the conservatives gained a boost in opinion polls, and by July 1983 they were only three points behind Labour in the polls.

Heseltine faced opposition from within his own party on many issues, particularly over Europe. Heseltine and the majority of the conservative party were pro european, whereas a significant minority of the party were eurosceptic.


The Conservative position in the polls improved after the election, and by March 1988 they were ahead of labour.
