Welcome to The Mugwump Post.

A commentary and analysis of Australian politics and social issues.

The Post makes every attempt to present its arguments impartially and without bias.

Readers will find that some articles are serious analysis, while others are more focused on life’s foibles, and the hardworking staff at The Post make no apology for posts which are 98% free of  political correctness or intellectual rigor!

Comments are always welcome, and the usual rules apply – no personal abuse, no ranters!

If you have something genuine to argue or to comment on, The Post is more than happy to listen.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Edward Eastwood M.A. B.A. (hons) Grad.Dip.Ed.



  1. Gday Ed, love your blog mate. Your posts are well researched, and have that dry Aussie feel… i love it. Thanks for commenting on my blog, glad i had an opportunity to find yours. Awesome dude.


    1. You’re making me blush. Happy that you enjoy my scribblings. You’ll love blogging and from what I’ve read of your posts, you seem to have a feel for it. You’ll also get to know some of the regular bloggers who stick at it (sites come and go) and commentors such as unknownispeaksense who seems like a nice person and also hangs around the comments section of The Guardian, so they’ve got to be ok.


      1. thanks, i wasn’t sure what to expect when i started (blogging), but i’d say the blog is out of its infancy so to speak. Thanks for the confidence/ego boost. I have seen unknownispeaksense around a few times actually. 🙂
        Ah The Guardian, i have a few friends that work there, don’t trust a single one… jokes, great people to be honest. 🙂
        You should check out CitizenFour, speaking of The Guardian.. I watched it a few nights ago, well worth it.

      2. all good man, you would be doing well to offend me. I was actually seeing it as a positive, bit of recognition for my many misspent hours at work is a good thing.
