Former Labor Party leader Mark Latham has always been one of the sharpest critics of Australian politics, both during his tenure in power and in more recent years through his books, essays and commentary.
In his latest book, The Political Bubble: Why Australians Don’t Trust Politics, he explores how the parties on both sides have lost touch with constituents by moving away from the mainstream towards the extremes of left and right, to the detriment of all.
