Author(s): Mark Latham
Mark Latham is the original Outsider, a politician who rose to the very top of his profession but refused to be cowed by political correctness and refused to bend his knee to the leftist fads of the day. Outsiders is a thoughtfully curated collection of Mark's previously-published articles and thoughts on topics ranging from political correctness to Islam, Donald Trump and Brexit. Not only a superb raconteur, Mark writes as he speaks - with honesty, extraordinary insights and above all a razor sharp wit and deep love for Australian larrikinism. If you can't get enough of having your virtue signalled, of having your politics determined by your identity, of saying the appropriate things to show how compassionate and caring you are, of being trigger warned about being offended by unsafe words and ideas, then avoid this book like a dose of the bubonic plague. About the Author: Mark Latham served as the leader of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) from 2003 to 2005. He is a journalist and political commentator, and is the Number 1 read columnist for News Limited in NSW. He was co-host of the television show Outsiders until March 2017 and launched Mark Latham's Outsiders in April 2017.
"What appears between the covers of this book is an anthology of constructive thinking about what's gone wrong with our country. Mark Latham, repudiated by the public at a general election in 2004, has now emerged as an individual who, many Australians believe, is the hope of the side. It is now clear that while Mark Latham hasn't changed, the public's understanding of the issues that confront them has; and the capacity of Mark Latham to address them has elevated him to a level of respect that is unavailable to almost any politician in this country. His success in communicating the crises facing Australia and offering future direction for our country on a range of issues, derives simply from the fact that he's a man of very significant intellect; he's a man who does his homework comprehensively; and he's fearless and articulate in marshalling his material and prosecuting his case. Simply Mark Latham is the man of the moment and after reading this book it's easy to understand why. Mark Latham has emerged, thankfully, as a formidable figure in the world of politics and broadcasting. To use the vernacular, on critical issues, Mark is 'spot on'. And for that I think we should all be grateful." --Alan Jones AO
