Latham on the right track

The Morning Bulletin - - YOUR SAY -

FOR­MER Prime Min­is­te­rial con­tender Mark Latham has come in for a lot of crit­i­cism since join­ing up with One Na­tion.

Mark’s BIG mis­take was at­tempt­ing to dis­tance Aus­tralia from Amer­ica as did Gough Whit­lam, who got sacked by the Gover­nor Gen­eral in 1975.

Gough wanted to keep the money from our re­sources, and not see it go­ing to Amer­i­can cor­po­ra­tions.

Let’s hope that Mark is given a fair go and le­gal fan­dan­gles won’t be used against him such as hap­pened with the jail­ing of Pauline Han­son all those years ago, the bankrupt­ing of Cul­leton from Western Aus­tralia and the le­gal tri­als of Clive Palmer who is ex­pos­ing po­lit­i­cal un­der­hand tac­tics and rec­om­mend­ing the stop­ping of wa­ter charges for farm­ers.

Clive has some good ideas for help­ing Aussie busi­nesses.

Too many small busi­nesses are be­ing bankrupted and they are the back­bone of our econ­omy.

The large po­lit­i­cal par­ties aren’t do­ing the right things, and the sys­tem needs to be fairer.

Chang­ing Prime Min­is­ters every cou­ple years to en­hance elec­toral suc­cess must stop.
