Personal Quote:

[during his resignation speech, referring to Mrs Thatcher's approach to European negotiations] It's rather like sending your opening batsmen to the crease, only for them to find, the moment the first balls are bowled, that their bats have been broken before the game by the team captain.


Because of Howe's apparently mild-mannered personality, Labour MP Denis Healey notoriously compared being attacked by him in the House of Commons to "being savaged by a dead sheep"; nonetheless, his high-profile resignation speech in 1990 is widely thought to have triggered the downfall of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
