MP Mark Latham explains why

MP Mark Latham explains why he called the Prime Minister, John Howard, an “arselicker” who “kissed some bums” on his recent brown-nosing trip to Washington: “I shared the emotion and language of my electorate in describing the Prime Minister as an arselicker “. According to the Age, “Opposition Leader Simon Crean said he would not use the word Mr Latham used but he agreed with the sentiments expressed by his frontbencher about Mr Howard’s posture in relation to the Americans on his recent trip to Washington.”
