I'll keep calling PM names, vows Latham

"Federal Labor frontbencher Mark Latham said today he would continue to describe Prime Minister John Howard as an arse-licker if he failed to protect Australia's interests.

Mr Latham, who in today's Bulletin magazine described Mr Howard as an arse-licker on his recent visit to the United States, said he was merely using old-fashioned Australian vernacular.

He said Mr Howard should have used similar language when talking to US President George W Bush about American farm subsidies and the damage they would do to Australian farmers."

I can think of some American vernacular that we should call Bush (and the rest of Congress) because of the farm subsidies, but I'll try to keep this blog PG-13.
