    Abstract

    An explicit and politically mobilised English nationalism has beenremarkable because of its absence from deliberation on constitutional change in theUnited Kingdom. In short, it remains a mood and not a movement. This articleexplores the mood and explains why that mood has not become, as yet, a movement. Itexamines three related aspects of the English nationalist mood. First, it considersanxieties about the condition of contemporary England which can be found in thework of intellectuals and artists. Second, it identifies the sense of injustice whichanimates the lobby group the Campaign for an English Parliament. Finally, it looks athow mainstream party politics responds to these national anxieties and that sense ofnational injustice.
