Former Labor leader turned One Nation candidate Mark Latham has come out swinging on his first campaign pitch, accusing the NSW Berejiklian government of turning Sydney into a huge “unliveable construction site” ringed by “alien” residential towers.

Kicking off his campaign for the NSW election on March 23, Mr Latham was back at his favourite stomping ground yesterday: Sydney’s sprawling outer west.

Ten degrees hotter than the rest of Sydney and 60km from the nearest beach, the outer west has been earmarked as the site for Sydney’s new “purpose-built” city, Aerotropolis, and the city’s second international airport.

I had a good chat with Steve Price (filling in for Alan Jones) on 2GB breakfast this morning. We talked about David Leyonhjelm quitting the Senate to contest the NSW state election.

It’s important to put alternatives out there. I’ve looked closely at Labor and Liberal policies at state level, a lot of them are identical, a lot of them have failed.

Plus, it’s important to fight for freedom – but you can also take freedom too far and it becomes anarchy.

I talked about NSW One Nation policy which would tackle congestion in Sydney.

It was announced this morning that Mark Latham will be NSW One Nation Leader and Legislative Council Candidate for the forthcoming NSW election on 23 March 2019.

Positive feedback from the public – and watching NSW’s decline – has contributed to Mark’s decision.
Electricity prices have doubled in a decade, school results are going backwards in international league tables, and Sydney is bursting at the seams because of Big Australia immigration and over-development.

These are some of the issues Mark will be tackling with down-to-earth policy.

The current Berejiklian Government is out of touch – Mark will be bringing common sense back into NSW politics.

“We need a break from rapid population growth, a chance for jobs, services and transport links to catch up. That’s one of the reasons I’ve joined One Nation and become its NSW leader for the March State election,” says Latham. “Senator Pauline Hanson has been Australia’s leading voice for a major cut in immigration numbers. Having lived in Sydney all my life, I want to play a role in saving the city from over-population and perpetual congestion.”

Latham will also be campaigning to end the Left-wing discrimination against men and boys. “Parties change and evolve over time,” he says. “The One Nation I’ve joined is pro-merit and anti-discrimination, supporting the traditional Australian ‘fair go’.”

Mark adds, “I’m running for elected office again because of the way our civilisational values (free speech, merit selection, resilience and love of country) are under siege from the Left.

“Like many Australians I’m worried about the country’s future, especially the direction the education system is taking with the rise of identity politics, gender fluidity programs and ‘snowflake schools’.

“I can’t stand by and watch this unnecessary loss of traditional Australian values and the ‘fair go’ principle. I want to play a role in NSW politics in defending our civilisational values.”
