My name is Dylan Smith. I have a strong interest in Australian politics, especially in the interconnected and emotionally-charged policy areas of climate change, human rights and the federal budget. I grew up during the Fraser / Hawke / Keating years in a household with a left-leaning mother and right-leaning father which gave me an appreciation of some of the divergent views surrounding contemporary political issues.
This blog is a place for me to expand upon ideas and discussions that develop around federal politics. I can often be found lurking and commenting on Twitters #auspol hash-tag. Please follow me @auspolblogger and feel free to comment on my blog posts.
