Latham has exposed the soft underbelly of what is supposed to be Australia’s Labor Party. He has shown us what a sham it really all is – self-serving and opportunistic with most of its leadership nothing more than parasites on the backs of its grass-roots membership and true believers. I doubt though that it will shake up the ALP.
And therein lays the real disappointment about Latham. He’s exposed the ALP for what it really is but has left those of us on the left high and dry by refusing to follow through and do something about it preferring, instead, to skulk at home while raking in the proceeds from his Diaries.
Get over it Latham. Lead something!!
