    For those who do not know, Enoch Powell was the infamous xenophobe Conservative MP whose anti-immigration "Rivers of Blood" speech destroyed his political amibitions.

    If even he would be disgusted by the Conservatives' xenophobia, that is a very bad thing.

    I think an element of xenophobia is healthy for a progressive society.
