South Australian independent Nick Xenophon is destined for a lengthy career in the Australian Senate. He has very cleverly resisted the temptation of becoming the Government’s Senate stooge by siding with the Coalition on enough matters to show that he really is an independent. Others less skilled as politicians would have succumbed to the power of being able to get amendments made to Labor legislation and lost their status as an independent by so doing.
