Re: Should Enoch Powell get a blue plaque ( in Wolverhamton)?

Let's agree he's sufficiently (in)famous to warrant a plaque. How should he be summed up in a couple of words? How about Ideologue and orator. I can't think of a couple of words to encapsulate "A sad individual who played on people's fears and by "talking proper" when expressing them...
