->''"The fact that the UK won the Falklands War is obscuring here the fact that it was seriously touch and go. A little less covert assistance from the French, a few more Exocets hitting home, and Thatcher could have been going into the election as the author of a bloody and humiliating defeat...the {{BBC}} resolutely declined to play the jingo card. This got a lot of Tories very riled -- they were particularly exercised about the way the BBC referred to 'British forces' rather than '[[PatrioticFervor our boys]]' or whatever. This kicks off the modern Tory antipathy towards the BBC -- even now there is a substantial strand of Tory politics that regards the BBC as an enemy. Later on in the eighties, this leads to the Tory government trying to shake up, reform and cut down to size the BBC, imposing new and alien styles of management."''
