This blog once bore the name 'EDL Extra'. I supported the EDL until 2012. As the reader will see, the last post which supports the EDL dates back to 2012. This blog, nonetheless, retains the former web address.

Tebbit or Enoch Powell? [by Mjollnir]
Not a single one of them stood up and fought for common sense on immigration. Anyone opposing the destruction of English community and identity, while importing cheap foreign labour, was branded 'racist', 'zenophobe', or 'Little Englander'. Tebbit was in a position to do something about this erosion of our culture and identity and did nothing.
Preferential treatment for black and minority groups was being handed out whilst he was in a position of power - he said and did nothing.

Tebbit is like all the rest. He ignored the public's voice while in a position of power. Then once away from his position, he waits (how many years out of office?) until other politicians say it's time to talk about immigration, and then he stands up to be counted.
The time to talk about immigration was twenty or thirty years ago. Enoch Powell was shot down by people like Tebbit. Yet history will show Enoch Powel to have been right and people like Tebbit to have been opportunists.
Isn't there a saying that 'a week is a long time in politics'?
By claiming that, Tebbit should have led any party is proof of the public's short memories.
If Tebbit had run the Conservative Party we would still be where we are today.
