Since the Scottish Referendum.

Some notes towards writing a fuller essay.

Since the scottish referendum most of the scottish left has been focused on Scottish Independence  or viewed issues through that lens or even more narrowly through the SNP.

I've even seen some of the left argue that the SNP IS the socialist vote or the SNP are the only way of improving Scotland.

So it seems much of the scottish left has been co-opted into the reformist narrative of Scottish independence and expresses a Scottish Exceptionalism- the idea that an independent Scotland will somehow be radically different, radically more green or democratic or socialist than any other past or present country (which is completely false)
