Geoffrey Howe, politician with a connection to Wales (Port Talbot)
Geoffrey HoweSenior minister during the reign of Jolly Queen Thatcher, what a lovely time we all had.
Connection: Born in Pen-y-Cae, Port Talbot.
Became Lord Aberavon.
Did he not precede Heseltine in bringing Mrs. Thatcher down, thus founding a long line of Euro-federalists to undermine the Conservative Party?
My companion (name withheld) whose mother was born in Bristol , is an exact look-alike of Lord Geoffrey Howe. He doesn't know much about his family but there must be some connection.
Grandfather was a Frederick Gover or Gover Frederick Powell but the connection might be in the grandmothers' line. We are wildly intrigued by this situation. We saw Lord Howe in an interview on CNN Europe and they even speak alike (except for the accent, my partner is American, born in New York).
My thought at the time was 'Good god, it's (my partner) with an English accent!' Any input on the situation would be greatly appreciated.
