How Not To Oppose Political Union

  • J. Enoch Powell


The question how and by whom this country is to be governed is at the heart of politics. What is more, in the last ten days the men of Bruges — perhaps I had better define that expression: by the men of Bruges I mean the people who had hoped, and hope still, to see their country again an independent self-governing nation — have had one hell of a political lesson. It is that political lesson which I want to underline and comment upon this morning. It consists in the association of two facts which might be identified, as it were, as the minor and major premises of a syllogism and in the drawing of a conclusion from the juxtaposition of those two facts.
