slackbastard is Mark Latham…

Mark Latham is (a) slackbastard.

I’ve given [Beazley] a bagging here, which he deserves. But the good thing about his being so conflict-averse is that he will do anything for anyone. He can’t say no. I call him an opportunist but maybe it’s the people around him suggesting opportunities that he can’t refuse. That settles it then: he’s a weak opportunist. (And I’m a slack bastard.)

About @ndy

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2024 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.
