The Berlusconi story and Donald Trump

long hours and with mortgages to pay off, and that feels threatened, culturally and economically, by mass migration. The parties have struggled to a much lesser degree among the better educated in salaried occupations, especially if they are in public employment and have trade union protection, all of which enables them to feel an affinity with the leftwing themes of cosmopolitanism, solidarity and market regulation. Against this background, both Berlusconi and Trump have been able to make their political fortunes by articulating the resentment felt by working

, 2007 : 117–18). In comparison with Kingsnorth, Berger is concerned with social perspective in the Here and Now rather than with reflections about the end of time; with individual fates rather than with anxieties about lost national identities. In the face of the complex and diverse catastrophes (to which Britain has contributed significantly, as all major European nations have, in the past and the present) which are responsible for today’s mass migration, Kingsnorth asks: ‘What does it mean to be “us” in England? It’s such a big question at the moment because the

rhythms of the Rastafarian communities that had been flourishing on the island from the 1930s (Bradley 2000 ). Over time, this musical form morphed from ska into rocksteady and eventually reggae (Bradley 2000 ). Reggae was almost exclusively concentrated within Jamaica at first. The country's island status and the low geographical mobility of reggae's ghetto-bound enthusiasts constrained diffusion. Reggae had no means of traversing geographical space. However, mass migration to the UK during the 1950s and 1960s, instigated by a UK government keen to tackle

was a canny Leeds pipe manufacturer aware of a growing Irish market. The use of this pipe to the point of discard suggests that the user could have been Irish or had links to Ireland and, as such, took steps to assert his distinctive identity by using a pipe marked ‘Dublin’. Mass migration from Ireland in the mid-to-late nineteenth century as a result of famine, economic instability, and rural evictions brought many Irish people to the industrial centres of England and the United States.

Indeed, Lucy Mayblin ( 2017 ) links 1980s asylum policy changes even more emphatically to most asylum-seekers from then on coming from former colonies and being racialised as non-white. This evolving history of migration and border control was the background for late-twentieth-century cultural racisms arguing that more mass migration would undermine autochthonous culture (sometimes including

exposure. The relationship between observation and destruction resonated in discussions about the dispersal of industry and population during and after the war and reflects how conflict had a lasting influence on perceptions of architecture and landscape. Evacuation and dispersal The transformation of rural environments during the war involved rendering them into reception areas for evacuees, and pastoral sites of peace in war and reconstruction. The wartime evacuation of cities was foreseen by planners and architects, who argued that a mass migration away from cities

entrepreneurs were significant: not only did they open some of the first Asian cafés in the city, they also constituted the first movements on the mass migration chains involving migrants from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh that expanded during the 1950s, and which laid the foundations for contemporary Muslim communities in places such as London, Birmingham and Manchester (Werbner 1990; Ansari 2009). By the early 1950s many of these early migrants had become established market traders and some of our informants noted their movement into other business niches. These
