1968 höll politikern Enoch Powell ett tal där han förutsåg att London rätt snart skulle tvingas uppleva att det bodde fler invandrare där än engelsmän... Självklart fick man inte ens då säga sanningen utan Enoch fick givetvis sparken för ett så "elakt och lögnaktigt beteende"... Redan på tidigt 1980-tal fick han rätt!
Vad gör man när klarsynta politiker visar sig få rätt? Tja, jag vet inte hur man löser sånt i England, men jag gissar att det är som här i Sverige... Gammelmedia håller väl käften och det är bara på internet, med alla bloggare, som det kommer att nämnas över huvud tagen...
Jag förstår om t ex Kent Ekeroth skulle gilla en sån sanningssägare, liksom de flesta inom SD... men resterande PK-partier sitter säkert och önskar att de kunde få stänga webben... Men så länge den är öppen tänker i alla fall jag skriva om de saker jag anser vara viktigare än den sjuka mediabevakning som nyttjas för att t ex skriva om Victorias mage, kläder, makeup mm... Det anser jag vara oviktigt, men inte saker som verkligen handlar om vår verklighet... och DET skriver jag gärna om!!!

The Rivers of Blood speech was a controversial speech about immigration. It was made on April 20, 1968 by the British politician Enoch Powell.
The speech took place at the annual meeting of the West Midlands Conservative Political Centre in Birmingham, in the Midland Hotel. In a small room after a lunch, Powell warned his audience of what he believed would be the consequences of continued immigration to Britain from the Commonwealth.
He began with philosophical pronouncements:
"It is the supreme function of statesmanship to provide against preventable evils."
He concluded with these words, referring to the Race Relations Bill then coming before Parliament:
Here is the means of showing that the immigrant communities can organise to consolidate their members, to agitate and campaign against their fellow citizens, and to overawe and dominate the rest with the legal weapons which the ignorant and the ill-informed have provided.
As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding. Like the Roman, I seem to see ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood’.
That tragic and intractable phenomenon which we watch with horror on the other side of the Atlantic but which there is interwoven with the history and existence of the States itself, is coming upon us here by our own volition and our own neglect. Indeed, it has all but come. In numerical terms, it will be of American proportions long before the end of the century.
Only resolute and urgent action will avert it even now. Whether there will be the public will to demand and obtain that action, I do not know. All I know is that to see, and not to speak, would be the great betrayal.
The name given subsequently to the speech arose from its allusion to Virgil's line from the Aeneid 6, 1.86 (Powell had an academic background as a Classicist) about the Tiber foaming with blood: "Et Thybrim multo spumantem sanguine cerno."
The next day, the Leader of the Opposition Edward Heath sacked Powell from his Shadow Cabinet. Powell hadn't notified Conservative Central Office of his intentions, and this was expounded as one reason for his dismissal. Powell never held another senior political post.
The speech was followed by strikes, in particular in London's docklands, both in support and in opposition. Powell gained considerable support from the public, receiving over 43,000 letters and 700 telegrams, which overloaded Wolverhampton's postal system. Only 4 telegrams and 800 letters expressed a form of hostility to him or his message.
Powell was supported by MPs such as Sir Gerald Nabarro. Some supportive commentators attributed the surprise 1970 election victory by Edward Heath to the swing in Powell's West Midlands heartland, while other more hostile commentators have said that this speech alienated many immigrants from the Conservative Party.
Following the Brixton, Toxteth and Handsworth riots in the 1980s, Powell claimed that his 'rivers of blood' prediction had come true.
The speech remains well-known and controversial in Britain today, see Enoch was right.
