English nationalism is not defined by attitudes towards other parts of the United Kingdom. Indeed most English nationalists are relaxed about belonging to the union of the UK. Most accept that it is Scotland’s call whether to stay or go from the union. The defining characteristic of English nationalism is dislike of EU power, a sense of shame or anger that a once great free country is now bossed around by the institutions of Brussels. English nationalists are not allergic to the Scottish saltire, but to the twelve stars.
It is true that English nationalists now think the deal within the UK union is unfair on England. They want as much self government for England as Scotland enjoys for Scotland within the union of the UK. They want a fair financial settlement between the differing parts of the UK union. They either want English votes for English issues, or a new English Parliament.
All of this argument is second order compared to their overriding wish to be rid of EU interference in our law making, budgets and general government. A true Scottish nationalist wants for Christmas to be free of London control. A true English nationalist wants to be free of Brussels. Eng,lish nationalists also want their country to be allowed to exist, instead of continually wiped from the Brussels version of the map. The aim of balkanising England into unloved regions has been defeated. Now we need to rebuild England.
