One Nation MP Mark Latham describes Al Jazeera gun lobby donation story as ‘media entrapment’ – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Mark Latham speaks with Pauline Hanson in the background.

Screaming victims of their own conspiracy to encourage foreign donations to which they voted against in the Parliament but ready to take under the table. Just how many twists and turns will snakes make for a dollar? Now Mark Latham is brought in to try to put the back foot Party in front claiming Al Jazeera made them do it.

This is One Nation’s undoing so watch the Liberals swoop like like they did when Abbott had Hanson jailed. Like vultures fighting over a carcass. How is it Hanson’s Party has for 20 years shown how competant they aren’t with a gun? Watch Latham short term State  member long term leader. ()DT)

Rather than public office, Mark Latham should seek help – » The Australian Independent Media Network

After being dropped by virtually every media outlet in the country, Mark Latham is aiming to return to what he (thinks he) knows best – sucking on the public teat.

After finishing an economics degree, Latham was elected to the Liverpool City Council at age 26, becoming mayor at age 30. At 33, he was gifted a safe seat in federal parliament via a by-election and nine years later, became leader of the Labor Party, leading them to an ignominious defeat in 2004 and resigning a year later.

And it’s all been downhill from there.

Latham is, to use the words of Media Watch’s Paul Barry, “offensive, abusive and a bully.”

I would add a misogynistic, racist, homophobic boor with a vastly over-inflated sense of his own intellectual capacity which seems to have been spawned in the front bar of pubs in Western Sydney – oh for the days when the snowflake sheila’s were banned from darkening the doorstep.

I mean a man want’s the right to say “fuck, cunt, poo, bum” whenever he feels like it as Latham told a bemused audience at the 2015 Melbourne Writers Festival.

Beware the Trumpification of our politics

Mark Latham’s announcement today that he is to lead One Nation to the next NSW election in March, and to seek a seat in the Upper House, reeks as the next stage in the “Trumpification” of the fringes of Australian politics.

Mark Latham’s ‘extraordinary’ defence in Osman Faruqi defamation case struck out | Australia news | The Guardian

Former ALP leader Mark Latham. A judge ordered him to ‘start from scratch’ in trying to justify comments about Osman Faruqi in a video on the Outsiders program.

Faruqi, a former editor of pop culture site Junkee and a former Greens candidate, launched his libel action last year after the former leader of the Labor party accused him of “aiding and abetting Islamic terrorism” and fostering “anti-white racism in Australia”.

But Justice Michael Wigney on Thursday rejected Latham’s 76-page defence and ordered him to “start from scratch” in trying to justify comments about Faruqi in a video on the Outsiders TV program last year called “The Rise of Anti-White Racism and Terrorist Plots in Australia”.

New TV Show To Just Be Mark Latham Swearing At A Brick Wall For 30 Minutes

mark latham

The Nine Network has commissioned a 12-episode run of former Labor leader Mark Latham saying ‘shit’, ‘fuck’, ‘poo’, and ‘wee’ repeatedly for half an hour.

The edgy new program will explore the hot-button issues facing Australians, cleverly distilled into a series of swear words.

A producer for the new show said it would be fiery and unpredictable. “Sometimes he’ll say shit then fuck. At other times it will be fuck then shit. It’s going to be edge of the seat stuff”.
