David Starkey, historian, decided now is a good time to bring up Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech in relation to the London riots. It’s an argument so reductionist he actually distilled the cultural debate to who is ‘black’ and ‘white’. Like an inappropriate uncle drunkenly ranting at the family lunch, this is not his finest hour.
