Denton, Lathams 'unstable'. He's 'unstable' September 16, 2005 ABC host Andrew Denton says former Labor leader Mark Latham is emotionally unstable and one of the most conflicted public figures he has ever met. Mr Denton was speaking after the ABC won an eleventh-hour NSW Supreme Court battle for the right to screen an interview with Mr Latham which went to air last night. In the Enough Rope interview, Mr Latham continued his venomous spray on many in Labor's ranks ahead of the release next week of his book, The Latham Diaries. Mr Denton today said that, while he did not believe Mr Latham was mentally unfit, he did think he was emotionally unstable. He said he was concerned that Mr Latham's insight into Australian politics might now be dismissed. "I think he's a maddie, but that's a different thing (to being mad)," Mr Denton told ABC Radio. "I think he's emotionally very, very unstable. I think he's a conflicted a man as I ever met in public life. As you could see last night ... (there) are massive contradictions. "... he has some very coded relevant things to say about the dysfunctionality of politics, Labor politics in particular, and the media and politics, and I don't think they should be dismissed but I fear they will be."
