Classy MP o' the day

Say hello to the Labor (sic) MP for Dawson, Queensland, one James Bidgood:

"A federal Labor MP has been carpeted by the Prime Minister's office after he allegedly tried to sell pictures he had just taken of a man threatening to set fire to himself outside Parliament House. A photographer from News Ltd refused to pay....The MP, James Bidgood, realised quickly the implications of his actions, so instead offered the pictures so long as News Ltd donated money to a charity.News Ltd agreed to a donation".

Anyway, lest anyone think that our Strine friends are all born villians, this fellow hails from East London (UK, not RSA) and used to be a member of the Labour Party.
