Popis A fight for a freedom of driving and hunting thus becomes a fight for authentic rurality and, more importantly, it becomes a fight against those who are seen as oppressing the rural way of life. One of the perils of such performances of authenticity lies in their exclusiveness: there is only one “authentic” way of rural life. Rural authenticity links the quantitative, qualitative and performative elements of authenticity: it strives to establish a local uniqueness which makes us different from others, but the same among ourselves. Whatever the answer is, the rural–urban divide has become a highly visible motif in the public discourse, restated with each major electoral event. In the UK, the same role was played by hunting: a ban on hunting wild animals with hounds started a massive wave of rural protest in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
