Mr Latham accused the nation's soldiers of having limited intelligence and primeval interests in life'', in a column in today's edition of The Australian Financial Review.
He said former defence minister Joel Fitzgibbon was better off out of the portfolio, with even the most tedious of public duties "better than knocking around with the meatheads of the Australian Defence Force''.
But thats not all, this is what he has to say about his fellow Labor politicians:
"Regrettably, milking the system has become a regular part of Labor's culture," Mr Latham wrote.
Mr Latham contrasted the frugality of former Labor leaders John Curtin and Ben Chifley with the modern ALP breed.
"Labor talks a lot about working families but most of its Mps are working hard for the high life," Mr Latham wrote.
"Their favoured form of infrastructure is the gravy train."
Mr Latham should certainly now about that. How much super are you getting Mr Latham?
