In 1968, Enoch Powell's sensational comments about race
known as his "rivers
of blood"speech provoked the strongest reaction
to a speech by a modern British politician. Overnight he became
a national figure · reviled by some as a racist, hailed
by others as a hero. "There will never be anybody else so
compelling as Enoch Powell,'' said former Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher. "He had a rare combination of qualities all founded
on an unfaltering belief in God, an unshakable loyalty to family
and friends and an unswerving devotion to our country, which
in war and peace he served so well.''
