'MP's warning has come true'
I read with interest the letter "You Can't Put The Blame On Labour For Everything," by GA Wright (Mercury Mailbox, October 10).
I congratulate you, Mr Wright, just for mentioning the name Enoch Powell – a name most people would want to forget.
However, people who are honest would, of course, realise how his words have now come true.
He was in fact the only MP to speak out in what he believed would happen in the future regarding immigration, and what it would do to this country of ours.

Put racist thoughts to the back of your mind – I have many friends who emigrated here, and their blood is the same colour as mine, and they are entitled equally to have a better life here in what was Great Britain.
We are faced with wanting more houses, we have too many cars on the roads, our hospitals are full, our prisons are full – I could carry on and on.
It's a simple equation – the more people you put on an island, the more it's likely to sink.
Remember the early '60s, when buses were plentiful without any subsidy, they paid for themselves? Doctors made house calls, and no appointment was necessary. The working men's clubs for entertainment, going into the city and feeling safe. So have we gone forward or backward?
I'm in my late 70s and I have always been in favour of change, but only if it's for the better.
I do fear for the future of my grandchildren. Are there any MPs of any party that have the guts to speak their minds like Enoch did?
As for the Tory motto, "Britain can deliver"– I doubt it.
