Party Trap

by Ross Sutherland

A television journalist and a politician clash live on-air. What begins as a traditional interview slowly unfolds into a waking nightmare. A trap has been set: which side will walk into it? A darkly comic, dystopian glimpse of Britain’s near future: experienced entirely in palindromic form.
