Latham’s last boot…

22 August, 2009

…if only it were his last post.

Annabel Crabb’s opinion piece in the smh today pretty much sums up what Mark Latham has to look forward to after he swung his pen in Julia Gillard’s direction.

I wonder why the AFR keeps publishing him at all. Contractual issues aside, perhaps it serves as a lesson to all readers of how hubris and a complete lack of compassion and self-awareness can leave you. It’s the AFR’s public service announcement, reminding us all, as per the Bismarck quote, that we should learn from the mistakes of others and not of our own. But if Bismarck calls ‘fool’ on the person who learns from their own mistakes, I wonder what that makes Latham?
