Geoffrey Tucker was a PR man and successful lobbyist whose clients included British Nuclear Fuels Limited, and British Gas. Until his death in 2003 he was a 'Strategic Adviser' of Community Action Network.

His obituary in The Independent termed him "a long-standing luminary of the Conservative Party and frequently the trusted repository of the inner secrets of Tory cabinet ministers."[1]

The article adds that he played a "crucial role" in helping former prime minister Edward Heath into office.[2]

According to an article by Frank Johnson in The Spectator:

in the 1970 election, Tucker – without the knowledge of Edward Heath or the party chairman – arranged payment for a Labour official to tell the Tories Labour's election tactics. The Independent said that the mole was still alive.[3]
