UKIP in Wales leader Neil Hamilton has been embarrassing himself more than usual, defending Enoch Powell’s so-called rivers of blood speech as “proved right by events”.
The BBC reports:
When it was put to him that Powell accepted he was a racist, Mr Hamilton suggested that it was “racism in the sense of appreciating differences in cultures, and differences between nations, not that one race or nation is inferior to another by definition”
“He wasn’t a racist in the crude sense”, Mr Hamilton added.
So ‘good racism’ not bad racism, then?
At least he likes his envelopes brown.
