Ex-leader Howard a fight hero

Sunday Mail - - FRONT PAGE - LINDA SIMALIS

FOR­MER Prime Min­is­ter John Howard has been hailed a hero after he stepped in to stop a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence dis­pute near his Sydney home.

De­spite his loom­ing 80th birth­day, Mr Howard didn’t hes­i­tate to in­ter­vene in the wild scuf­fle be­tween a man and woman dur­ing his reg­u­lar morn­ing walk.

A Lib­eral source said Mr Howard, who was not hurt, screamed “hey” to stop the fight, which be­gan after a man, 47, tried to put some­thing into a rub­bish bin at 7.45am.
