POLITICAL comment has been changed since June 2016, quickly becoming a genre wedged somewhere between a weird and dark alternative history of the present and postapocalyptic dystopian iction. On 16 June that year, as news broke of the brutal slaying of Jo Cox, a young Yorkshire Labour MP, the mood of reportage and opinion veered of on a rapid tangent into the surreal. Whether watching the television news or reading the newspaper, we have all been let feeling the detachment – twisting in the wind, confused, shocked, as though we are spectators to a fantastical and frightening drama set on a familiar stage. Documenting this departure here on the pages of iScot Magazine or on my personal blog, I have been haunted by this sense of the unreal. Yet, no mater how fanciful my writing has seemed to me, the words rolling over the pages of the broadsheets daily conirm the truth that we have indeed wandered into the twilight zone.
