The leader of the Liberal Democrats, Tim Somebody talks of ‘turning long term allies into potential enemies’ on Gibraltar. Actually, it’s Spain that is doing that, but what should we expect from the party of Gladstone?
That doctrine of peace at any price has done more mischief than any I can well recall that have been afloat in this country. It has occasioned more wars than any of the most ruthless conquerors. It has disturbed and nearly destroyed that political equilibrium so necessary to the liberties and the welfare of the world.
