Enoch Powell v Terence O'Neill

Enoch Powell discusses Northern Ireland politics as he becomes an Ulster Unionist MP on 10 October 1974.

In this election night interview with Robin Day, Powell crosses swords with former Northern Ireland Prime Minister Lord O'Neill, in a frank discussion that prompts political analyst David Butler to conclude "I don't pretend to understand Ulster politics, I think I understand it a little less after that exchange".
