The leader of the Opposition is a guy called Mark Latham, described as a "punk politician".

He's awesome and just the sort of person the world needs. He MUST become the next Aussie PM!!

He beat up a taxi drive breaking his arm..

Called Howard an "arse licker" to Bush.
as well as the entire government as "just yes men to the united states, a conga line of suckholes"

More quotes...
The colourful quotes of Mark Latham

December 2, 2003

Mark Latham has used some colourful language during his time as a Labor parliamentarian, including the following:

"The role of government is to stimulate market competition, not smother it with tariffs, subsidies and central planning."
- from his maiden speech to parliament.

"Hand in your badge, Adolf."
- directed at former immigration minister Philip Ruddock.

"Howard is an arse-licker. He went over there, kissed some bums, and got patted on the head."
- description of Prime Minister John Howard's trip to the United States.

"That deformed character Tony Staley."
- description of disabled former Liberal Party president.

"If he didn't steal my property he wouldn't have any injuries, so I've done the bare minimum to chase him, to tackle him, to pick up my bag and retrieve the stolen property."
- outlining how he broke the arm of a Sydney taxi driver.

"There they are, a conga line of suckholes on the conservative side of politics."
- on Coalition support for the war in Iraq.

"Bush himself is the most incompetent and dangerous president in living memory."
- on US President George W Bush.

"(John Howard) has forgotten how to be a good Australian, not some yes-man to a flaky and dangerous American president."
- same again.

"F**king idiot."
- Description of satirist from The Chaser program during the last federal election.

"No, I think I made a mistake."
- recanting his call for the reintroduction of corporal punishment in schools.

My assessment is, I've won by two today, I'm one up on him."
- on former Labor PM John Curtin, who won the leadership by one vote in 1935.

"I'm not a white-bread politician, I'm not in that groove, I'll do things according to my own style."
- vowing to watch his language but not change his style.

"I just want to get to my office and see my family. I want to give my boys a hug."
- after winning today's leadership ballot.

"I love the larrikin Australian role, but no more crudity."

Mark Latham is a shoe-in.

Weasel John Howard has already packed his bags to leave The Lodge.

I understand your sentiment. He really doesnt have a chance though, does he?

When I say Mark Latham is a shoe-in, I mean he is the next Prime Minister of Australia. Without doubt. Broaden your horizons a little if you don't understand why!

Don't like him!

Masked may be right!
I think he will be the new prime minister!


posted on Dec, 5 2003 @ 04:41 AM
I wouldn't want him as MY PM, but as YOUR PM he will be a barrel of fun!

I dont know much about Aussie politics but I would imagine this is the equivelant of having James Traficant running the US.

John Howard (current PM) is a weasel and a wimp.

Mark Latham is an old school Labor Prime Minister.

Latham is going to get railed by Howard at the next election, and Costello the one after that.

Hes a smartarse, but that aint such a rare thing over here. You should know that NC

MaskedAvatar need I remind you the $96 billion debt the previous Labor government put us in. The Howard government has paid over $57 billion of that back, while keeping the budget in surplus every year since they won office.

If Labor wins the next election Australia will once again be in economic mayhem. Plus they'll be played like puppets on the international scene, just like how the Unions play them like puppets in the local arena.

Mark Latham is a moron. What responsible citizen would vote for a man who uses offensive language in a political position and picks fights with the general public (breaking a taxi drivers arm). The guy is an absolute wanker. I certainly wouldnt vote for a man who had no respect for an office he himself will be running for (calling the PM an arselicker).

If labor win the next election, the same thing will happen like always. Liberals will have to come back a couple of years later and fix their mess.

Don't ya love aussie politics, its just like watching "Dumb and Dumber"

1. Latham is no moron. Show respect to your next PM.

2. More responssble citizens will vote Labor than for Howard's departing goons. That's democracy. That's how Latham gets to be PM (Australia hasn't yet descended to the levels of electoral corruption evident in, say, the US and the Middle East and African dictatorships). Good on Latham if he chased down a thieving cabbie to maintain his duty as a citizen protecting his property. Weasel Howard would have crawled away with his tail between his legs to cry to hius wife.

3. Cite your foreign debt figures, and show that the current government has decreased the level of foreign debt, if you can. Yes, I would like reminding on that one!

4. Well, Stations, time to get behind the next Liberal leader and plan ahead to 2010. Who's in the mix? An early start would be good so the mighty Liberals can rescue Australia yet again.

Oh come on, Latham is still a gimp. Perhaps he wont come off sounding quite as pathetic as Crean always seemed to though.

.. and NC, don't get us started.

Well I can see I've got you on side now. (That wasn't taken out of context or anything.)

I'll just leave you with a quote from one of your great leaders:

"This is the recession we had to have" - Paul Keating

Hey, us here in Helengrad are very happy under our neo socialist nanny state! We are all saving our pennies to get our glorious leader's teeth fixed.

posted on Dec, 9 2003 @ 09:08 AM
Hehe Helengrad, does that make us Johnrovia?

Also, what is it with labor and shooting themselves in the foot?

Latham was going so well until he started with the 'Homeland Security' business.
