Mark Latham reportedly to join Pauline Hanson's One Nation

News Corp reports former Labor leader will announce he will lead NSW branch of the party but won’t be on the Senate ticket

Mark Latham led Labor to the 2004 federal election defeat but is now reportedly going to announce he is joining Pauline Hanson’s One Nation.

News Corp reports Latham will reveal on Wednesday he will lead the New South Wales branch of the party but won’t be on the Senate ticket.

“You’ve only just got to watch this space,” Latham told 2GB radio on Tuesday when he was questioned about joining One Nation.

A number of minor political parties have been courting Latham, including the Liberal Democrats.

The former Tasmanian Labor premier David Bartlett called him a “sick, sad, sorry loser” after the news broke.

“This will end badly as (Mr Latham) is either unwell, a massive narcissist or dumb as a box of hammers (or all three),” Bartlett tweeted.

Latham led Labor to a solid defeat against John Howard in 2004, and he quit federal parliament in 2005.

He claims he was sacked as a columnist for the Australian Financial Review in 2015 for making offensive comments on Twitter about Rosie Batty, whose ex-husband murdered her son in a violent public attack, and other female journalists.

Latham was also sacked from Sky News after just four months co-hosting a show, due to offensive comments about fellow Sky presenters and the teenage daughter of the Reserve Bank governor.

I'm sure that will work out wonderful. After all, look what an asset he was for labor.
