Re: Does Brexit Mean Brexit?

Thanks Brian, this is indeed very helpful to set the scores between the "nations" of the Islands. I have argued in the past (a short outline here https://www.psa.ac.uk/psa/news/brexit-ethnopolitical-dimension) that it is in fact the failure to resolve the "English" rather than the "Celtic" question which creates problems for the future.

Re: Does Brexit Mean Brexit?

Thanks Brian
I think you are absolutely right to underscore the importance of nationalism to Brexit. Brexit is indeed reconfiguring political loyalties in the UK.
As you say, the nation, rather than the state, is becoming the focus of loyalties, although this is blurred in the case of England. The 'British' rhetoric of Brexit has obscured this development.

Blog Post: Brexit, immigration and the Irish border

H-Migration members may have noticed that immigration featured prominently as an issue during the UK's referendum on its future relationship with the EU. You also may have noticed that the issue dropped off the radar and was replaced in prime position by the issue of trade and the Irish border. 

You would be forgiven for thinking that immigration and the Irish border are two separate issues. They're not.
