HOUSEHOLDER WATCHES PENNIES

The ALP loses a member:

Former Labor leader Mark Latham has officially quit the party he once loved. Labor sources have told the Sunday Herald Sun that Mr Latham recently stopped paying his monthly party dues by direct debit from his bank account.

Latham sure wasn’t kidding when he described himself as a hater. Wonder what he’ll do with the rest of his life.

    1. Hate Howard like Keating does? Though Latham seems to have a lot more hate then Keating could even imagine, and Latham has directed most of his towards the ALP.

      Maybe we’ll get our first unquestionably completely unbiased political commentator in that he utterly despises everyone.

    1. I know it has been said before, ad nauseam, but Australians showed amazing common sense in seeing through this ratbag and sending him to the wilderness.
      I shudder to think where we would be in world affairs today with that dropkick as PM.

    1. Anyone holding their breath for Alan Ramsey’s insights into the demise of the golden boy?

    1. A few weeks ago esteemed columnist, Frank Devine wrote a thoughtful article (IMO undeserved) suggesting a future occupation for Latham…

    1. Mark, mate, there’s money to be made in showbiz, dancing and singing. Just ask Pauleen. I look forward to catching you at the Revesby Workers.

    1. I think Mark would make a perfectly lovely weather girl for early morning television.

    1. Would this be an appropriate place to admit that I never watch early morning television?

      Habib, as much as I like to poke fun at Latham, I draw the line at his testicular status . . . . Lance Armstrong is in the same boat, and he’s an absofuckinglute legend.

    1. Isn’t obvious? He is going to become a traffic cop.
