Abstract
This essay applies some ideas from my book on the Literary Politics of Scottish Devolution to recent developments, focusing on the Britishness of devolution and what Brexit means for its future. I argue that Brexit-as-English-awakening torpedoes the British high politics that gave us devolution, and turns ‘the Union’ against unionism.

Keywords
