  • "The young Aberdeenshire loon Pat Hunter’s idea of reducing the SNP to a ‘Land and Water and Trees and Rain and Buildings Party’ in Duncan McLean’s novel has an appeal as a way of ducking out of traditional tribalism, of avoiding exclusivity. And a ‘Land and…party’, one that puts the interests of the natural world at least uppiesides with the human, does perhaps exist in some nebulous form, a number of single issue groups, yet to accrete around Greenpeace, the Green Party or Friends of the Earth. In the new Scottish Parliament, Green representation via PR is a distinct possibility."

    Edit: originally published in Edinburgh Review in 1998.
