The Red And The Blue is a political and policy blog by Yale Stephens. It aims to discuss and analyse the issues of the day in Australian (and Australian state) politics.
Comment and alternative viewpoints are welcome and debate is encouraged, with the rider that abuse, obscenity, defamatory content and personal attacks will not be published.
Yale is a Melbourne-based freelance blogger and writer. He has a lifelong passion for politics, both Australian politics and in other countries, and has intimate knowledge of Australia’s political, electoral and parliamentary systems.
A conservatively-minded member of the Liberal Party for most of the time since he was 18, he nevertheless speaks independently and critically of his “own side” when issues and circumstances warrant.
Originally from Brisbane before coming south in 1998, he was a “flag waver” as the Liberal candidate for the safe ALP seat of Bundamba at the 1995 Queensland State Election.
The Red And The Blue…clearly, Yale is in the blue corner…
