BORN TO BE RULED OUT

The Sydney Morning Herald reports:

Mark Latham has been hawking his personal diaries to the highest bidder and is being offered about $100,000 for what publishers describe as an explosive and insult-laden account of his years in politics.

Too late! We’ve read it already. Meanwhile, in other ALP leadership news:

The Opposition Leader has used the motor inn on at least six occasions in the past 18 months – including as recently as a month ago. The Motor Inn, in Arundel St, is frozen in a 1970s time warp, with beige furnishings, grey carpet and archaic airconditioning.

Perfect.

    1. Actually, that seems sad.  He might need the money considering his medical situation.  I hope that’s not the case.

      I wouldn’t even wish that on Margo.  Acute diarrhea, sure.  But not having to sell your diaries to generate some cash.

    1. He was an MP for 10 years, and party leader for 1, he would’ve made what’s worth around a million in today’s terms. Plus the 48 or so thousand he gets every year as a pension, plus his wife’s income, plus the money he made before he was in federal parliament.

      I think he’s doing just fine, financially at least.

    1. Maybe he pretend he’s still a national leader and send out video messages once in a while like bin Laden and Kerry do…

    1. Good, when he drops all the hate filled ‘truth’ as to what ‘really’ happened and how he really feels, I hope Alan Ramsey gives it a good read and then sticks up his own date.

    1. I just want to see what Latho has to say about his personal pack of arselickers (Ramsay being foremost)

    1. Non-information about a non-entity. Yay. Next we’ll have Pauline Hanson’s book, “If You Are Reading This, I Have Been Murrrrrdered.”

  1. As a man who (on the record) has talent for (a)Economics, and (b)Explosive and Insult Laden speech or prose, I guess he would have to choose the latter in order to garner sales.
