This is so out of line and so untrue. Off topic too. Enoch
Powell? "Rivers of blood"? When did that happen? He was as close to
being a fucking Nazi as any knuckledragging drooling moron, even though he
wasn't stupid himself.
for a more critical appraisal of Powell's life. The best thing he ever
did was die, and even then it took him 80 years too long.
A simple explanation of Powell's policies blends the worst
anti-immigration and racist policies of the One Nation/League of Rights
types with the worst economic policies of the Abbott and Costello
ultra-dry Liberals. I could go on (and on) but I'll leave it there.
