Senator as hero

It made a bit of a change this morning: a politician being hailed as a hero by one of the tabloids instead of being castigated for rorting the parliamentaryexpenses.
Northern Territory Senator Nigel Scullion was given the hero's role for stopping his taxi when he noticed a woman in distress on the Stuart Highway south of Katherine. Along with two fellow Senators travelling with him he gave chase to a man who the woman said had tried to rape her through the dense scrub for some time before losing him.
Down south politician praising was replaced by the more common politician bashing. The Sydney Telegraph found "secret frisbee funds" and the Melbourne Herald Sun had a supposed tax rort.
