The Windrush Generation: a cause for immigration reform?
Who are the Windrush Generation?
The term ‘Windrush Generation’ has been widely adopted to refer to migrants that entered the UK between 1948 – 1971. Following the aftermath of World War II, families from Jamaica and other various Caribbean countries boarded the passenger liner ‘Empire Windrush’ and journeyed to Tilbury Docks in Essex. This influx of migrants jumpstarted a trend of migration, with more and more individuals travelling to the UK to assist in rebuilding post-war Britain. These migrants were invited by the British government, with the intention that they would help solve the issues surrounding labour shortages at the time; workers were required to rebuild roads, care for the sick and injured, and to assist with other state services as required. With approximately 500 passengers, the Windrush liner therefore offered a substantial opportunity to address workforce issues at the time.
Santa’s Visa Situation
Santa’s Past and ‘Present’
Santa Claus claims multiple nationalities. Some of the earliest records of Santa come from fourth-century Greece and Turkey where Santa is listed under the name of Saint Nicholas and similar Dutch stories of Sinterklaas suggest Santa’s further association with the Netherlands.
There are also hints of the Germanic God Wodan as another alias of the Santa of the past, however more recent popular culture places Santa as currently residing between his two jolly residences of the North Pole and Finland’s Lapland (think of the frequent flyer miles)!
