Alarming front page of the Independent today. The accompanying article tells us "an estimated 278,000 hate crimes a year – of which 154,000 had an element of racial motivation". That is nearly three thousand racially-motivated incidents every week.
Leaving on one side issues of right and wrong (and it goes without saying that all violence, whether verbal or physical, is wrong).
Also leaving on one side the identity of the perpetrators and the identity of the victims.
154,000 incidents a year represents an inter-communal war - there really is no other way of describing it.
Therefore I think we are justified in saying Enoch Powell was right.
He correctly predicted this state of affairs. All the evidence is presented here by the left-leaning Independent. Perhaps more attention can now be given to Mr Powell's analysis of the immigration problem and how it is going to play out.
