Barnaby Joyce will take leave next week, Mathias Cormann to be acting PM instead


Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has announced Barnaby Joyce will take leave next week, so will not take up the role of acting prime minister.

Finance Minister Mathias Cormann will instead be acting PM when Mr Turnbull leaves the country.

Mr Joyce has been under immense pressure because of his affair with a former staff member and questions about whether the code of ministerial conduct was followed.

His future is precarious, with some of his colleagues considering asking him to quit as leader because of the damage the revelations about his relationship have done to the party.

The prospect of Mr Joyce being acting prime minister when Mr Turnbull travelled overseas next week had been worrying many Nationals.

They feared that being in the spotlight would have added to the crisis.

Mr Turnbull has now defused that by announcing Mr Joyce will be on leave instead of being acting PM.

Labor has already questioned if that decision means Mr Joyce cannot do his job.

"Are we simply meant to believe it is all a big coincidence?" Labor leader Bill Shorten asked.

Deputy Liberal leader Julie Bishop would normally be the acting Prime Minister if the Nationals leader is unavailable.

But Ms Bishop is also travelling overseas next week, which is why Senator Cormann will take the job.

He is next in line because of his role as Government Senate leader.

They are incompetent, they are corrupt but they are incompetently corrupt! They are letting Barnyard drag this out which will do immense harm to the coalition.

I am glad they are happy to harm themselves but can see it is stupid beyond compare. When Barnyard is gone the spotlight will swing to. . .turdfull! He approved Viccy’s sinecures, approved Barnyard accepting that. . .stupid. . .rentfree use of the townhouse.

2018 will be an Annus horribilis for the coalition.

They all want it hush-hush and constantly report to the Media that it's none of the Public's business.
Why?
Because all the Political males are having affairs and the female Politicians have their hands in the cookie jars getting free helicopter rides and more.
They're all in on it.
Australian Politics is rife with it !
Hell, look at FreeDiver - he's in bed with the PA Sewers. :roll

Barnyard’s affair IS in the public interest because of the oodles and oodles of tax payer money paid to his mistress.

Next installment of the Armidale rent-free property saga – Greg Maguire says Barnaby rang him and asked if he had somewhere he could stay.

Barnaby is telling a very different story. Who is telling the truth here?

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/live/2018/feb/15/politics-joyce-turnbull-shorten-australia

If Barnyard did ring his mate and ask for cheap/rent free accommodation then that breaches the Ministerial Code of Conduct. Barnyard just keeps giving!

anyone hear the answers Barnaby gave in parliament today when he asked why he was getting free housing in Tamworth ...

I do pay for a house. I pay for one in Tamworth. I pay for one in Tamworth for Natalie and the girls. I continue to do that and will continue to do that.



well fkk me, how gracious of you barnaby. How many of the other hundreds of thousands of divorced dads are paying the rent/mortgage for the ex and kids, while still having to pay for their own rent?

I wasn't watching at the time but commentary on the radio was that he sounded pissed that he had to pay rent for his wife and kids.

Nope they're hanging in there, tooth and nail. It is all for nothing tho.

Barnaby Joyce is GONE. He WILL NOT come back from his 'family break'.
I wonder who he'll be comforting. :roll

NOT HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTERS..!!

IF his mates in cronyism allow him back, NO WAY WILL THEY EVER WIN the next election.

HE has worn out his welcome. FUCK OFF BARNABY.!!!

The Bolt Report was, apparently very sensible on the Barnyard Capers.

Some other commentators, Dennis Shanahan etc, have been scathing.

It seems Murdoch has cut the coalition adrift.

now barnaby and turnbull are taking pot shots at each other, all whilst refusing to withdraw support for each other. :giggle :giggle :giggle :giggle

Barnaby is still crying that his private life is non of anyone else's business, including turnbull :B


they seem to struggle to understand that it's not the affair that has people pissed off ... he can screw whoever is dumb enough to screw him to his hearts content

but when he is paying for that sex with taxpayer funds, either directly or through the creation of lucrative positions, then it's EVERYBODY'S business.

The A.C.T has the highest amount of 'Escorts' of the highest quality. So 'discreet' is the service that most don't have to 'advertise', especially at the street level.
The Politicians get the 'cream' of the crop and a lot of it.

Pollies spend a lot of time away from family so you can understand the temptation. But they can pay out of their more than ample salary FFS, not help themselves to taxpayers’ money!

That Dickhead Craig (?) KELLY had a go today. He said personal issues shouldn't be public. Well, what about a Minister and a CHILD having sex. Isn't THAT personal. Nope the NATS must dump Barnaby, despite their strong old boy network. Else they'll lose all credibility. Or, perhaps I should say, what little credibility they DO have.

JS ? you're taking a very hard line .. going in hard labelling it prostitution.. Really that is too narrow tho. This is an example of endemic corruption in the form of 'perks'. They feel entitled to act in this way... the old boys. :sad

selling sex for a high paying job is just as much prostitution as is selling sex for $500

I don't care who they screw, but he can pay her $200k a year from his money

That politicians feel entitled? Yes, and I agree 100%. Politicians, all of them regardless of party, feel they are above the law. That the rules don't apply to them. That they're smarter than everyone else cause we will never figure out they're spending $200k a year just to get a bit of fluff.

then when we do figure it out, the miserable dickhead whinges it's his private life and nothing to do with us.

it's time politicians who cheat the taxpayers were made to pay just like every other thieving bastard out there.

Umm well I'd need to actually spend time thinking about that. Too easy to get bogged down.

As for Barnaby? He doesn't understand the impact of his reply to Malcolm.
His brain is not up to the task. He was always a very successful pretend politician. I bet you he couldn't believe his luck when he found politics.!

IF he comes back from this... the LNP will lose the next election.

barnaby is an idiot. The only reason he wins is because most people in his seat would vote for the national party, no matter who was running. They could run a cattle dog as their candidate and it would still win.

No that's not the 'ballad' HBSGuy - but that one is pretty good too.
Cheers.

Anyway, I remember saying that the Nationals & Liberals should go their separate ways.
Looks like it could actually happen, though I didn't think it would happen like this.
It's almost like watching a Soapie where Barnaby gets the Girl and Turnbull takes the 'Money'.
