"Its like watching a nation busily engaged heaping up its own funeral pyre...."I make no secret of my admiration of Enoch Powell and it is a sad fact today that had we more politicians of similar stature as Powell, the country might not be in the abysmal state it is. Of course, had we listened to him, we would not have the multiculturalism problem that exists today. Courtesy of CallingEngland, my attention is drawn to this youtube record of words that were prescient indeed - as were his words in the Rivers of Blood speech.
Enoch Powell (Rivers of Blood 1968)
"The prospective growth in this country of the immigrant - and immigrant descended population - will result in civil strife of appaling dimensions; and institutions and laws, let alone exhorations, will be powerless to prevent it."
Richard North, EUReferendum, does not have a high regard for the call from Nigel Farage for the army to be deployed, a suggestion to which I too am against.
CallingEngland ends her post with words that I only wish I had written - and which I reproduce:
"I know it's raking over old coals and it's controversial but the man was right. There were marches in the streets in support of his comments on immigration but it made no difference to his fate. Heath kicked him out of the Conservative Party and, in hindsight, it's more likely to have been for his views on the European Union than immigration. Nothing has changed and if the English people were truly served by their "public service" broadcasting media and their governments they wouldn't now be afraid to get out on the streets and reclaim them from these out-of-control looters. If the police can't, the people must. We don't need the Army, rubber bullets or water cannon, not on English streets. What we need is the collective will to confront our government and judiciary about these problems and a willingness to see off these youngsters by ourselves, for ourselves. Let's leave the State out of it; they're the ones that created this mess."If you wish to marvel at the powers of a wordsmith and orator, do pop over to CallingEngland's place and listen to approximately 20 minutes of sheer verbal wizardry.
