Indeed, Enoch Powell did try to tell us. But many decades before Powell, Sir Edward Grey, the British Foreign Secretary made the observation on the eve of WW1 that “the lamps are going out all over Europe and we won’t see them lit again in our lifetime.” He could well have been talking about Europe exactly 100 years later.
And to think that today, the 6th of June, is the anniversary of the D Day landings in 1944 to save Europe from the tyranny of Hitler. Why did we bother?
No one can or will save it this time.
This time Europe is a pall bearer at its own funeral.
In light of the terror events of the last number of years, the recent publication of The Strange Death of Europe by Douglas Murray stands out as the go to compendium to understand where, when, how, why and particularly who, with respect to the decline and inevitable death of Europe.
Everyone should down load and read it. Enoch Powell was way ahead of his time when he gave what came to be known as “The Rivers of Blood” speech on April 20 1968. For his trouble he was ostracised from everywhere. He became persona non grata. He was right.
Never in the history of the world has their been such an appalling deliberate and blatant betrayal of humanity than that of the last 60 years or so by the political class, the bureaucracy and the media. And still they are unapologetic AND still as we’ve seen recently, the people in France and Holland vote for them. And probably Germany too. This is what happens when you don’t pay attention.
In a way Europe doesn’t deserve to survive.
Talk about going out with a whimper rather than a bang? And what wimps they are!!!
This will make you outraged, angry and sad. Bitter, morose and melancholy.
