It's Enoch's fault.

He claimed that not all immigrants wanted to integrate in Britain, instead seeking to foster racial and religious differences 'with a view to the exercise of actual domination, first over fellow-immigrants and then over the rest of the population'.
Powell was spot on, That Javid guy IS playing the race card.
If he can't see the problems now (which Mr Powell forseen), He is either batshit daft or part of the problem.
Him calling the race card on Powell today is highly offensive to foresight and intelligence itself.

40 Years on and we have given equality a chance, People have allowed the rules to be changed and It is not working.
I'm all for equality but It's not me who is trying to change a culture to suit my own (or external) agenda.
Time for change, I'm not sure what, But to quote Mr Branson "Insanity by definition, Is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result"

powell is the most misquoted and maligned politician since the war. he was vilified for telling it how it is and how it was going to be. they shied it up as racism because they didn't like their policies being exposed as the sham that they were.

he has been proven right time and time again yet never received an apology off anyone

Ah WW2 the aftermath and learning lessons ... Enoch Powell had an interesting observation ....

No misquote here but an interesting quote ....

We are taunted—by the French, by the Italians, by the Spaniards—for refusing to worship at the shrine of a common government superimposed upon them all... where were the European unity merchants in 1940? I will tell you. They were either writhing under a hideous oppression or they were aiding and abetting that oppression. Lucky for Europe that Britain was alone in 1940.

Speech to the Merseyside Conservative Ladies' Luncheon Club (5 January, 1990),
... as it would appear we are still , but just , that way now .... strangely prophetic .
The thing that gets me about "equality" is if any group has to accept inequality, it is usually not a group for whom equality laws are created (family law, human rights for criminals, but not for victims, the laziness of authority / establishment to aim for easy targets, instead of the harder ones.

(NB: I have not knowingly experienced an unfair application of equality laws myself, my opinion is from what I glean from the BBC, Private Eye, and my judgment of what people say in conversation.)
