seeder Posted April 3, 2017 #1 Share Posted April 3, 2017 Quote Britain's Royal Navy is substantially weaker than it was during the Falklands War but could still "cripple" Spain, military experts have said. Rear-Adml Chris Parry, a former director of operational capability at the Ministry of Defence, has called on the Government to "appropriately" invest in Britain's military capacity if it wants to "talk big" over Gibraltar. It came as a former Tory leader suggested that Theresa May would go to war with Spain to defend the sovereignty of the peninsular just as Margaret Thatcher did with the Falklands. Lord Howard said the Prime Minister will stand by Gibraltar during Brexit talks amid claims of an EU “land grab” for the territory. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/04/02/britains-navy-far-weaker-falklands-could-still-cripple-spain/ 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
