Dennis Atkins is the national affairs editor at Brisbane’s Courier-Mail where he writes the regular political column Party Games, mostly analysing and laughing at the antics of our federal politicians.
He’s been a journalist for about 35 years, having started in Adelaide as editor of the children’s section of The Sunday Mail, Possum’s Pages.
Since then his writing has been divided between politics and music, two great passions. After two long periods living in the national capital, he’s escaped to the riverside tranquillity of Brisbane.
