    I know someone going to Oxford who was very much a fan of Enoch Powell.
    Professor Powell was a superb Classicist. He believed however that his gifts of Ciceronic oratory would be appreciated by οἱ πολλοί in the Swinging Sixties.

    They probably fell under the influence of Simon Heffer's evil biography of him, which makes him out to be some sort of misunderstood genius.

    I believe Heffer is currently revising Himmler for his next book.
