Monday sees the fortieth anniversary of Enoch Powell's Rivers of Blood speech. So to anlayse the impact of the speech on Powell's career and on British politics, the Conservative History Group will be holding a speaker meeting next Monday 21 April at 6.30pm in the Thatcher Room at Portcullis House.
The speakers are Powell's biographer Simon Heffer and Nicholas Hillman, who has written about Enoch Powell for the Conservative History Journal. If you would like to attend, please drop me an email.
Membership of the CHG costs £15 a year. To join, send a cheque payable to the Conservative History Group, PO Box 279, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN2 4WJ.
The next speaker meeting is on June 17th when Ffion Hague will be talking about her new book on Lloyd George and his women. In the autumn Andrew Roberts will be addressing the group.
