Enoch Powell Was Right.

About the treatment of Kenyan prisoners during the Mau Mau rebellion.

Two things the news reports don't mention about the Mau-Mau torture case currently winding its way through the legal system:

  • The Mau Mau themselves were fairly nasty and hardly innocent victims (although many of the prisoners were wholly innocent).
  • The leading voice in Britain denouncing the savage treatment of the Kenyan prisoners at the time was Enoch Powell, the supposed racist.

He was most certainly right.
