Abstract

It is five decades since Enoch Powell told a Conservative Association meeting in Birmingham that soon "the black man will have the whip hand over the white man". Judi Atkins analyses the rhetoric of that speech and concludes that, although Powell's notorious prediction of a race war has not materialised, his rhetoric of division and blame still forms part of British public discourse.
