    His attempts to limit inflation through wage-price controls led to the government being involved in repeated industrial disputes.

    He sued The Move for libel after the band sent out a promotional postcard showing Wilson in bed with a female assistant (1967).
    He publicly smoked a pipe as part of his 'man of the people' image, but in private preferred cigars.
    His grade on his final examination at Oxford was reportedly the highest ever recorded at the time.
