The Disparaging of Enoch Powell’s Visionary Insight.
There has recently been made much of the “Rivers of Blood ”speech given by Enoch Powell in 1968, and the BBC featured a TV program showing the present generation of descendants viewing the very short portion of film that exists which also serves to project Enoch Powell in a very bad light if not interpreted correctly. Perhaps the timing of this particular program was intended to someway bounce off and add to the disarray of the Windrush fiasco for political reasons but there is no doubt that the trust of the original influx from the Caribbean has been shamefully betrayed .
Much play was made of the shocked reaction shown by the viewers which was repeated many times throughout the program but there was nothing about the man himself at all, although I was expecting to at least be shown some insights.
People are also confused about Enoch Powell’s reputation because it is also known that he actively helped migrants to arrive from the Caribbean which seems to contradict the racist label that has been attached him.
The famous words attributed to Enoch Powell are actually those expressed by one of his constituents which were repeated in order to act as a foil to the theme of the main body of his speech.
There seems to be a sense of the prophetic visionary about him and in his speech he expresses a moral obligation to address impending problems and not to shy away from exposing them for fear of becoming unpopular or ridiculed.
Back in the 60’s and 70’s we had no concept of the situation that we now find ourselves in from the constant wars in the Middle East, except that we had to deal with the realities of the Cold War and that of the proxy wars taking place throughout Africa and South America, sponsored by the old Soviet Union.
In the speech there is mention of repatriating people to their country of origin and of even migrants requesting themselves to be helped to return to their homeland, but at this present time there are no homes to return to because whole countries have been decimated by the “7 Countries in 7 years” agenda of the US shadow government. It’s as if this minor detail has now been dealt with by complete ruination ensuring that refugees remain so.
Also the demise of the Soviet Union and the integration of East European countries back into the “Western” fold has facilitated the route into once homogeneous Nation States protected by borders.
Now reflecting on the words of Enoch Powell’s constituent who back in 1968 expressed: “If I had the money to go, I wouldn’t stay in this country”, he will now find that there is nowhere to go that would satisfy this particular desire.
When New Labour was in office under Tony Blair and immigration numbers reached 350,000 per year, the MSM made great play of immigration from Poland, seemingly with the intent of channeling peoples concerns towards them only. Polish people were like a breath of fresh air in their outlook and abilities and there are many instances of personal experience with them to validate this sentiment. However this finger pointing was quite curious to me because the Polish were only one small segment of the A8 group of European immigration into the UK and there were many times more from India and Pakistan but for some unknown reason it was never ever mentioned that the bulk of emigration was from African countries who’s aggregate number exceeded that of the A8, Indian and Pakistan combined. This was never ever mentioned even though these figures were available from National Statistics.
So it seems that there was an agenda being covered up although Tony Blair had been awarded the Kallergi award from the EU for promoting immigration and Peter Mandelson admitted to New Labour having been actively looking for immigrants to bring into the UK. There is a side issue though and this is to do with housing and the investment potential which was stoked by New Labour immediately from 1997 when they first won the General Election but which has continued on through the Coalition of 2010 by other financial incentives. The stress on housing availability equals increased profits.
On further reflection, in late August 2015, the last time that I had reason to visit Hannover in Germany, I noticed for the first time smartly dressed young males who were obviously from Africa and their demeanour was one of being well behaved and respectful and felt that they understood the German way of life and behaviour and would integrate well. Two weeks later there was the huge influx of migrants invited by Angela Merkel and the resulting problems that followed that made the headlines in the media.
This item was furthest from my mind this morning and the intended things to do for the day had been mapped out from before the weekend, but also there was a report in the morning news that Martin Lewis, who runs the Money Saving Expert web site, intends to sue Facebook for not removing fake investment articles which are cheating vulnerable people out of vast amounts their money. I had wanted to write about this and was already clearly worded in mind but a whisper in my ear suggested Enoch Powell instead.

Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech
Words of Enoch Powell: [Quote] A week or two ago I fell into conversation with a constituent, a middle-aged, quite ordinary working man employed in one of our nationalised industries.
After a sentence or two about the weather, he suddenly said: “If I had the money to go, I wouldn’t stay in this country.” I made some deprecatory reply to the effect that even this government wouldn’t last for ever; but he took no notice, and continued: “I have three children, all of them been through grammar school and two of them married now, with family. I shan’t be satisfied till I have seen them all settled overseas. In this country in 15 or 20 years’ time the black man will have the whip hand over the white man.”
I can already hear the chorus of execration. How dare I say such a horrible thing? How dare I stir up trouble and inflame feelings by repeating such a conversation?
The answer is that I do not have the right not to do so. Here is a decent, ordinary fellow Englishman, who in broad daylight in my own town says to me, his Member of Parliament, that his country will not be worth living in for his children.[unquote]
Enoch Powell was a fair minded man who believed in equality for all citizens:
[Quote]The third element of the Conservative Party’s policy is that all who are in this country as citizens should be equal before the law and that there shall be no discrimination or difference made between them by public authority. As Mr Heath has put it we will have no “first-class citizens” and “second-class citizens.” This does not mean that the immigrant and his descendant should be elevated into a privileged or special class or that the citizen should be denied his right to discriminate in the management of his own affairs between one fellow-citizen and another or that he should be subjected to imposition as to his reasons and motive for behaving in one lawful manner rather than another.[unquote]
