Yesterday the ABC ran this unusual file photograph of Mark Latham to illustrate a story about Latham’s ongoing pancreatitis issues:
Why choose an image of him wearing a cap? A subsequent piece in the SMH may explain ...
The Opposition Leader, Mark Latham, stayed at a luxury resort on the Central Coast last week while Labor leaders insisted he was too ill to make a statement on the tsunami disaster.
Mr Latham, who has been criticised by Labor MPs for not publicly expressing his sympathy for victims, was seen with his family at the pool of the resort for three days from January 2, according to three other guests.
A guest at Terrigal’s Star of the Sea resort, Shirley Corbett, of Sydney, said yesterday that she and five friends saw Mr Latham, his wife, Janine, and two young sons, Oliver and Isaac, over the three days. “He was with the kids at the pool. There was nothing unwell there about him.”
Mrs Corbett’s friend, who asked not to be named, said she and the other five people in her group had no doubt that it was Mr Latham, although he was sporting a very short haircut.
It’s a Latham haircut illness holiday mystery! What is Mark hiding?
