According to the cultural right, big cities are teetering Babels, lawless and ghettoised, but also wealth-hoarding success stories that look down at the conservative provinces. “You crammed and besieged losers,” this Tom Wolfe-ish attitude to urbanites seems to say, “we are just as good as you.”
All of which helps to explain why some British populists back a foreign president over the mayor of their own liberal capital. The running tiff between Donald Trump and Sadiq Khan is modern politics — closed versus open — in miniature.
所有这些都有助于解释为什么一些英国民粹主义者宁愿支持一位外国总统，也不支持本国崇尚自由主义的首都的市长。唐纳德•特朗普(Donald Trump)与萨迪克•汗(Sadiq Khan)之间的口水战，是现代政治——封闭VS开放——的缩影。
But there is more behind the courtship of the visiting president than that. There is foreign policy at work. The British right sees the US as a natural companion in a post-Brexit world. If a no-deal Brexit puts the UK out in the European cold, it hopes to warm its hands on the fire of a fast-growing America.
