Conservative musings and comments.

The most controversial topic in British politics, seemingly…

I read recently an article on the Birmingham University Blog about Enoch Powell, and the first thing I thought was that this is a can of worms that is always open, yet never properly talked about. It’s always argued, and yet never properly. In my opinion, Enoch Powell was one of the greatest and most articulate post-war politicians to have graced our land, when you talk of conviction politicians, it would be fair to say there is no greater than Powell.

Blair, Brown, Cameron and Clegg – give me Powell or Thatcher any day!

To be honest, immigration is so horribly controversial, no-one will ever be right. It’s terrible really, say anything anti-Immigration, and you are a foaming-from-the-mouth, hood wearing racialist, say anything pro-Immigration, you are surrendering the British national identity. And this is why I am choosing to say nothing, until I get into Parliament!

I’d be interested if any readers would like to leave their comments and opinions on Immigration, I’d be really interested in knowing what the consensus view is, so get posting people!
