Beauty And The Geek Toby Latcham Being Attacked By Young Liberals

-(Toby is on the right in the photo as well as in politics)

It appears Canberra is not the only place where there are feuding Liberals, as apparently the Young Liberals have started a smear campaign on Toby Latcham who is currently appearing on Beauty and the Geek.

Toby who has shown in the house that he is engaging and witty has had a dirt file circulating about him by his political enemies according to Nine MSN.

The article said:


“He might be portrayed as a lovelorn and emotionally inexperienced young man who just needs a bit of help … but the reality is that Toby is a conservative young Liberal with far-right views that no self-respecting girl would go near.”

Screenshots purporting to be of Latcham’s now deleted Facebook page appear in the dirt file.

In one of the mildest comments attributed to Latcham, he apparently describes himself as a “heartless economic rationalist”.

“Toby has made many enemies, both personal and political, over the years, and now he has remade himself … into a public figure, all those from his past would like to see the truth revealed,” Latcham’s colleague said.

When contacted by ninemsn, Latcham said he was aware of the material and that it was “all a fabrication”.

“There’s no truth to any of it … this has been going on for months after there was a split in the [Young Liberal] club,” he said.

Why have I not seen these Facebook photos? But the “dirt” file has been placed on my blog by someone purporting to be Toby.

Here is what it says, and as he said it is apparently a load of bollocks:

 Toby on “Beauty and the Geek Australia” might be portrayed as a lovelorn and inexperienced young man who just needs a bit of help to deal with his social ineptitude.

The reality is that Toby is an extremist right-wing nut-job of a Young Liberal that no self-respecting girl who knew his true past would go near.

The real Toby”¦.

Toby is a Young Liberal and a self-described “heartless economic rationalist”.

He posted on a public blog that “I’m not racist! Racism is a crime, and we all know that only black people commit crimes”.

And he posts on the internet his fantasy writings, where he pretends to be a surgeon and writes “long and detailed surgical logs”: “As I play a surgeon, I tend to hold to realism; therefore, like most surgeons, Graves prefers to see his patient as a big hunk of meat with organs and such rather than a person”¦”

Toby described as “Scandalous!” that a young girl was saved from cancer using taxpayer money in a public hospital.

And on his Facebook page he has expressed his admiration of Hitler, and that he is “putting the sensual back in “˜nonconsensual'”.

There is only one way to sum up Toby Latcham: this geek is a freak!

 Also Toby had this to say on the blog when it was claimed he may have been a fake geek:

Hang on, how am I not a geek? Sure, an anonymous source has claimed that I’m putting on an act, but there’s absolutely no evidence to these claims. They’re not even willing to put a name to them. And it’s hardly as if Channel 9 doesn’t have a vested interest reporting on a Channel 7 show. I mean, you can even Google my name to find the past 7 years of Star Trek fan fiction I’ve written! If you’re telling an overweight virgin who’s studying three degrees, has 7 computers in his room and has written over 800 pages of Star Trek fiction that he’s not a geek, then I would most certainly like to meet a “˜qualified geek’.

Well Toby’s schooling in the shenanigans of university politics has probably helped him handle the vagaries of reality TV and hopefully he is now having better luck with the ladies.

So you’re confirming that it is Toby in that thread then?

2 reality raver { 11.10.09 at 8:59 am }

Yes I am 99% sure it is.

3 Kyvyny { 11.10.09 at 11:23 am }

When you’re on 100% maybe do an interview with him? That could be interesting.

“Toby the Tory” has such a nice ring about it.

Hey everyone, I found this facebook profile with more info on Toby. Check it out:

Alex – don’t you think it looks fake?

Alex – is it just a weird coincidence that an ABristol is posting over on Television Without Pity… as Toby?

All of the supposed comments which are supposed to ‘expose’ toby as a horrible person only really expose the fact that he has a wicked (and slightly black) sense of humour, and that the writer is entirely lacking in humour.

I actually like him more now after reading those comments (tee hee, esp the racisim one, i lol’d)

Interesting that Toby claims that if you google search for him you find 800+ pages of Star Trek fanfare writing. I Just googled his name and found none.

“There’s writing Jim but none from Toby!”

It’s clear that most of those comments (Hitler, racism) are jokes. People are so PC and humourless these days. I love the wicked sense of humour he clearly has judging by those comments.
It’s pathetic that this could even be news.
