The evil spell has been broken

Well here's a thing.

For the second day running an article on the Labour-supporting website Progress has referenced Enoch Powell in the opening paragraph:  http://www.progressonline.org.uk/2014/02/07/we-risk-a-race-to-the-bottom/

For many decades anyone trying to discuss the ideas of Enoch Powell was screamed at by the left and subjected to intimidation and abuse.

Now the evil spell has been broken, and even the left has grudgingly accepted that it is not racist to talk about immigration.

I always knew the moment would come when Enoch Powell was restored to his full intellectual stature.

It is the totality of his philosophy that is so impressive.  He had original things to say on every area of public policy.  His influence on the Conservative party has been immense (although shamefully unacknowledged).
