This is England, this is a white country!

On 14 August 1976, the great rock guitarist, Eric Clapton, said this on stage at a gig in Birmingham:
"Do we have any foreigners in the audience tonight? If so, please put up your hands. Wogs I mean, I'm looking at you. Where are you? I'm sorry but some f***ing wog... Arab grabbed my wife's bum, you know? Surely got to be said, yeah? This is what all the f***ing foreigners and wogs over here are like, just disgusting, that's just the truth, yeah?

So where are you? Well wherever you all are, I think you should all just leave. Not just leave the hall, leave our country. You f***ing... I don't want you here, in the room or in my country!

Listen to me, man! I think we should vote for Enoch Powell. Enoch's our man. I think Enoch's right, I think we should send them all back. Stop Britain from becoming a black colony. Get the foreigners out. Get the wogs out! Get the coons out! Keep Britain white!

I used to be into dope, now I'm into racism. It's much heavier, man. F***ing wogs, man. F***ing Saudis taking over London! Bastard wogs. Britain is becoming overcrowded and Enoch will stop it and send them all back!

The black wogs and coons and Arabs and f***ing Jamaicans... don't belong here, we don't want them here. This is England, this is a white country, we don't want any black wogs and coons living here!

We need to make clear to them they are not welcome. England is for white people, man. We are a white country. I don't want f***ing wogs living next to me with their standards. This is Great Britain, a white country, what is happening to us, for f***'s sake!

We need to vote for Enoch Powell, he's a great man, speaking truth. Vote for Enoch, he's our man, he's on our side, he'll look after us. I want all of you here to vote for Enoch, support him, he's on our side. Enoch for Prime Minister! Throw the wogs out! Keep Britain white!"
As far as I know, unlike so many who have been cowed by PC retalliation over the years, Eric has never apologised for or attempted to play down the remarks here made here in any way.

I wouldn't have used the same language but I reckon the silent majority would applaud the unfashionably outspoken sentiments.

At least they would have back then.

The 20 April 1968 Enoch Powell speech which prompted his outburst inspired the excellent documentary which can be seen below.
