They should have taken Enoch Powells’ 1968 Speech ‘Rivers of Blood’ a little more serious.


They should have taken Enoch Powells’ 1968 Speech ‘Rivers of Blood’ a little more serious.


Mr Powell compared enacting legislation such as the Race Relations Bill to “throwing a match on to gunpowder”.
He said that as he looked to the future he was filled with a sense of foreboding.
“Like the Roman, I seem to see the river Tiber foaming with much blood,” he said.
He estimated that by the year 2000 up to seven million people – or one in ten of the population – would be of immigrant descent.
Mr Powell, the shadow defence spokesman, was applauded during and after his 45-mintue speech.
Widow in Enoch Powell’s Rivers of Blood speech really did exist
The passing of Druscilla Cotterill did not merit an obituary in her local newspaper. A diminutive widow, she was mourned by just family and a small circle of friends, who remember her as a “bit of a character”, outspoken and fond of a drink.
But Druscilla had a secret.
For almost 40 years, her identity – indeed, her very existence – has remained a tantalising mystery, known only to a diminishing handful of people.  But it can now be revealed that this apparently unremarkable woman played a pivotal role in a moment of British history.
For she has been identified as the inspiration for Enoch Powell’s infamous 1968 ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, in which he warned of apocalyptic social consequences if the rising tide of immigration was not halted.
Evoking the highly emotive image of ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood’, Powell railed against proposed anti-discrimination laws which would make it a crime to refuse services or housing on the grounds of race.
Crucially, he used the potent story of a beleaguered, elderly constituent as evidence that it was Britain’s white population who were being victimised in their own country.more

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

They go there to make mor…
