TRUMP AND MEADES ON MUSSOLINI

The re-run of Jonathan Meades treatise on Mussolini, his architecture and fascism was on tonight (BBC4) . The program has unintended resonance with Trump. Its not a new program. But it may rings bells. Big bells some may think.

Someone may inadvertently make the connection to its messages, Fascism (which is not Meades main theme of architecture) and Trump as a proto or modern equivalent of a fascist. 

These rather undisguised parellels are unlikely to be observed by Trump so maybe the BBC will escape without an international incident.
