Story on Powell's passing
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.
