Enoch Was Right: ‘Rivers of Blood’ 50 Years On

April 2018 saw the 50 year anniversary of one of the most incendiary and contentious speeches British politics has ever known.

Enoch Powell MP’s intervention became known as the “Rivers of Blood” speech, and was widely misinterpreted by Britain’s political establishment.

Powell was cast aside and repeatedly misrepresented and pilloried for his views on immigration.

My book, released on the 50th anniversary to the day of the speech, re-analyses Enoch’s claims, and exhibits where and why the UK media and political classes got Enoch so wrong.


“A very important part of the continuing debate… Enoch never goes away”


– Nigel Farage, former UKIP leader and leader of the Brexit Party
