Brisbane-based journalist with no discernible skills outside of poking fun (and occasionally offering insight) into the incomprehensible world of Australian politics. Having degrees in Engineering and Journalism is not indicative of any type of intelligence or sound judgement on my behalf. Full disclosure of political beliefs: I am a socially-conscious libertarian economic conservative, slightly to the left of centre-right and tracking more toward the libertarian plain as I get older; not a member of any political party.
