How did former Tory leader Lord Howard compare Gibraltar to the Falklands?

Speaking on Sky News on 2 April, Lord Howard said: "Thirty-five years ago this week, another woman prime minister sent a taskforce halfway across the world to defend the freedom of another small group of British people against another Spanish-speaking country, and I’m absolutely certain that our current Prime Minister will show the same resolve in standing by the people of Gibraltar.” Asked later if he was suggesting going to war with Spain over Gibraltar, he said "of course not" but added: “I can see no harm in reminding [the EU] what kind of people we are.”
