Enoch Powell: “a people find themselves displaced in the only country that is theirs”

21 November 2015

Enoch Powell

“People see with their own eyes what they dread, the transformation during their own lifetime or, if they are already old, during their children’s, of towns, cities and areas that they know into alien territory… the process is that of an invasion, not, of course, with the connotation either of violence or a premeditated campaign but in the sense that a people find themselves displaced in the only country that is theirs, by those who do have another country and whose home will continue to be elsewhere for successive generations.”

– Enoch Powell, Rivers of Blood speech, April 20, 1968
