Letter From England 1: Setting The Scene

I have been asked to write a weekly column on British politics. Since I am writing for a largely American readership, and since Americans mostly know little of what happens outside their own country, I think it would be best if I were to begin with a brief overview not only of what is happening here, but also of what has been happening for quite some time.

Instead to Newham North East Conservative Club, to see Simon Pearce – and, much more than that, to see ENOCH POWELL. Keep Reading
