Left Flank is a political blog, whose name is also a nod to the love of all things AFL (Australian rules football). Left Flank was created by Elizabeth Humphrys & Tad Tietze, who live in Sydney Australia. Follow them on Twitter: @liz_beths and @Dr_Tad. More recently Marc Newman (Sydney @marc_newman) and Kevin Ovenden (London @kevin_ovenden) have collaborated on Left Flank.

Left Flank also cross posts from other blogs and publications, and from time to time others write for us.
