Rivers of Blood

Enoch Powell’s most famous speech. The BBC own the copyright on audio of the original speech and they use this ownership to ensure that the speech is never given the treatment it deserves. So to put that right I decided to record the speech myself. Doing this was rather daunting, but here it is. The full speech, no omissions, no ominous sounding music, no overlay of images designed to provoke a specific response, just the words delivered straight as if making a speech but without attempting any cheap impersonation of Enoch Powell’s remarkable oratory technique. I hope you like it.
