Why Nationalists Lose

The Scottish National Party lost a ton of seats. Let’s hope people figured out that nationalist fantasies are not the solution to liquid capital’s triumph over the nation-state. 

Please note how determined nationalist politicians are not to mention any of the stuff about the nation-state we’ve been discussing here. They exploit the anxieties that liquefaction of previously solid institutions creates but they never name its source.

  1. No, I see no evidence of any significant change in the desire of those resident in Scotland for the country to become independent, the polls and the voting patterns indicate that it continues to hover between 40-60%. The Scottish National Party continues to have a clear mandate for another referendum and states that it intends to hold one before any Brexit deal is finalised by Westminster.
