A while back the leader of the opposition in Australia was Mark Latham, who went to my school and was a year above me. A number of things made me immensely proud of him and his 'Green Valley' (a working class suburb very close to where I grew up) ways.
One night, a little drunk, a cab driver tried to rip him off so Mark crash tackled him (he was a member of Parliament at the time, but also he'd been school captain and ipso facto, captain of the school rugby team).
He referred to the then government (in reference to their support of the Bush invasion of Iraq) as a 'conga line of suckholes'
His description of Prime Minister John Howard's trip to the United States.:
"Howard is an arse-licker. He went over there, kissed some bums, and got patted on the head."
And describing Janet Albrechtsen, a right wing journalist on the Murdoch payroll who was a political appointment to the board of the national broadcaster:
""A skanky ho who will die in a ditch to defend the Liberal Party"
You can take the boy out of the western suburbs....
