CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS VISITS FINSBURY PARK, the neighborhood of his youth, and asks: "How did a nation move from cricket and fish-and-chips to burkas and shoe-bombers in a single generation?"

Well, the answer is that this is a predictable effect of mass immigration, that it was "predictable and predicted" in the words of Sam Francis, and the man who predicted it was called Enoch Powell. Powell`s 1968 speech, beginning " The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. ", can be found here.

And Hitchens, who for years was a really dangerous leftist, despised Enoch Powell. But Powell was right.
