just to check, because i wouldn't want to look like a fool, this is the Maggie Thatcher who sent a junior Foreign Office minster called Nick Ridley to the FI in 1981 to persaude the Falklanders that they wanted to become Argentinian?
this is also the same MT who was told on the 20th March 1982 that SIS were certain that the Argentines were going to invade on 1st April 1982, and who did nothing?
the same MT who did not order HM Submarines Spendid and Spartan to sail to the FI until 30th March 1982?
the same MT who did not immediately order a military response, but who was in a state of some confusion, and who did not finally decide upon a military response until told, forcefully, by Admiral Lewin, that she must order a military response?
because, you know, i wouldn't want to get your Margaret Thatcher and the Margaret Thatcher who's actions and inactions allowed the war to happen mixed up...
if the 82 war had not happened i'm sure the FCO would have quietly washed its hands of the islands.
