Australia dodges a bullet!

`Look out Terry!' Said Senior Detective Mike Flap to his young Constable sidekick, Terry Tickle. `He's across the road with a 303 behind the Kingswood! Have you got im?' `Yeah Sir.' Said Constable Tickle though gritted teeth. `Right then' Said Flap, `take out Latham and I'll get inside and get the kids out'.
So goes the dialogue on the Australian Cop drama;`Bastard Squad' and so it seems it would apply in real life as `The Latham Diaries' goes on sale.

With assistance from the `Darwin Office', here are some extracts from the dripping pages of bile and hatred that are `The Latham Diaries'.

`...Had the shits with that 4 eyed prick again today.(Kevin Rudd) Always contradicting me. This time it was bringing the troops back from Iraq for Christmas. I stormed into his office and found him tickling and playing with Kim Beazley on the floor in front of his desk. Beazly was rolling about giggling and spitting while Rudd tickled his tummy making poofy high pitched squeals. Really odd shit I've gotta say. Is this the Labour Party of the 21st Century!? Noticed Kim drools a lot too. Eeuw!

Working in Parliment Office tonight, looked up to see Beazley with his face pressed against the window staring at me. I blinked and he was gone. Got up to look outside and saw him and Bob McMullen running around the corner giggling. (he is sooo back benched tomorrow) No one in my starff(sic) believes me. Told Julia, she just nodded and muttered something under her breath and flicked her hair the way she does.My crush on her is getting stronger. She's so pretty she makes my toes curl...and yet, there's something sad about her too......

I'm never talking to Gough ever ever ever again. Joel said he told Bill that Robert mentioned to Sue in the gallery something about not having the `moxy' to run the country. I mean Gough said that! About ME!? Stupid old C---t! F--k I hate old people - but even Gough turning on me. This is the last staw...must get Geraldine to refill them, can't drink Fanta from a glass, the bubbles get up my nose.'

It's perfect holiday spot and only Joel knows I'm there...though he still hasn't guessed I'm bungin' the sickie on yet.....he's my best friend but fair dinkum he's stupid.
