‘Sanity prevails’: Equal pay for Paralympic gold medallists

Sky News host Paul Murray says sanity has prevailed after Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced every athlete in the Australian Paralympic team who wins a gold medal will get the same financial bonus as the Olympic athletes.

“Sometimes it is so easy to kick a goal in politics and sometimes you get a free kick from right in front,” he said.

“That is exactly what has happened and exactly the right decision has been made by the prime minster today.

“Excellent, thank you, congratulations, sanity prevails, prevails very easily, as soon as he knew there was the problem he fixed it, that’s the type of prime minister he is.”
