NotesImage 1: See 17924 for published cartoon. News: 3 June: A passionate attack on Enoch Powell was made by Wedgewood Benn. He said "The flag of racialism which has been hoisted in Wolverhampton is beginning to look like the one that fluttered 25 years ago over Dachau and Belsen. If we do not speak up now against the filthy and obscene racialist propaganda still being issued under the imprint of Conservative Central Office, the forces of hatred will mark up their first success and mobilise for their next offensive." The most evil feature of Powell's Conservatism was the hatred it was stirring up" Benn said. He alleged that this was playing on fear and fanning suspicion. "When hate was released it got out of control quickly. "
