Who, in an article, “Labour still haunted by Gillian Duffy”, in today’s Guardian (Cif) claims the following:
“Enoch Powell’s predictions [Rivers of Blood speech] have been proved wrong.”
Like the predictions made around the same time (in the late 60s and early 70s) relating to the “limits to growth”, i.e. the inherent non-sustainability of consumer-capitalism, on our finite, vulnerable and overpopulated planet . . !!
The course of the 21st Century will reveal such claims to have been tragically premature.
She also writes:
“The debate of the 80s about whether it is possible to be black and British is now seen as absurd.”
Absurd? By whom? By the liberal-fascist/statist left who actually believe in the oxymoronic absurdity of “multi-ethnic nationhood” they have imposed on us since the end of WW2 . . !!
The fact is that ANYONE, without any regard whatsoever to race, ethnic origins or culture, is now considered BRITISH, thereby destroying any claim the British STATE may (or may not) have had to representing a PEOPLE and a NATION.
Sure, you can be “black and British”; you can be “absolutely anything and British” nowaday, thus removing all meaning from the word – except to liberal-statists, of course, who would embrace anyone and anything in their ideological, self-righteous and moral-high-ground-claiming obsession with “inclusiveness”.
Having completely undermined its claim to nationhood – and the legitimacy, authority and loyalty that went with it – all that our mercenary STATE is left with now is POWER, our dependency on it, and our reluctance to face up to reality and disillusionment.
