Lord Howard`s omissions

What Lord Howard unsurprisingly omitted to mention, in his "inflammatory comments" about Gibraltar, is that when Thatcher sent the task force "against another Spanish-speaking country", she was way behind in the polls (Tories fire off warnings on future of Gibraltar, 03/04/17). The Falklands crisis was the result of diplomacy being abandoned in favour of the prime minister`s political gamble.
   The same thing happening again over Gibraltar cannot, however, be ruled out; someday soon, the electoral penny will drop, the truth about helping the "just about managing", and other such unfulfilled promises, will be revealed, and May will need a pre-election boost!
