    If this had been known as he said, the by-election might have had a very different outcome.
    Two years! What a sanctimnious scumbag is Joyce! His wife must be so hurt, and furious.
    PS. What were the items Di Hallam removed from his office?

    Sal I feel sorry for his wife, but you know... families break up all the time and it's sad for everyone.. that part I consider private... his wife is just going to have to move on, he is going to have to work through this with his kids...

    What I do however take issue with is
    one... his claims the media should not be reporting on this story and
    two... she gets a cushy higher paying job because the deputy prime minister got her pregnant

    Look, the way I see it, if he can’t manage his own families affairs without resorting to family and fabric destroying measures, he is not worthy of public office. Look, there is a right way to do things and there is a spiteful nasty way to deal with issues. Barnaby is a public figure, which means we want our society to learn respectful and professional ways to do things. Bonking his secretary and getting her pregnant because he is unhappy with his wife is wrong! Yeah, plenty of people do it but that doesn’t make it right.

    We need higher standards in our society and certainly not just brushing it off as something that happens broadly so doesn’t matter if our politicians do it. These people apparently want to lead a public life to fight for things that hold communities together and should not be taking advantage of their positions to fulfill their own desires and fantasies.

    Just imagine(no don’t imagine the intimate stuff for goodness sake) Kevin Rudd, Johnny Howard or Malcolm Turnbull bonking their secretaries and making little mini me’s! Would Australia accept that this is okay collectively? I mean if it did, we would be absolutely screwed as a people.

    Joyce has got to go the more I think about it!

    you scared me with the mini me's lol

    Yes we do (need higher standards) but let's be real... it still happens and generally I wouldn't spend too much time in breaking someone down because their relationship ended in unsavoury ways... I suppose I've seen too much of it among friends and how destructive it is for families and so don't dwell on it... for those involved it's best to move on as quickly as possible.

    The other stuff though... the I deserve privileged treatment... no reporting and freeloader well paying job for the pregnant mistress...as a voter that really angers me.

    yes down with Joyce

    He's got himself in the poo big time- the rent free flat in Armidale. That's a no no for someone on 400 g's and who has said that inner city people should shift to Armidale where rents are cheaper. ( sorry I've been primed by Ralph Epstein this arvo on 774 )

    I'm out of the loop on the rent free flat in Armidale... sounds like he had much to hide... no wonder he wanted to stop the media reports

    "...
    According to the publication, the property was provided for free by a local businessman named Greg Maguire.

    The Guardian reports that Maguire is a long-term friend of Joyce, who has been involved in New England politics for many years.

    The businessman owns the Powerhouse hotel in Armidale and a transport business in Tamworth.

    [​IMG]
    In 2004, the hotel owner was named in a Senate Inquiry as having been the intermediary who tried to convince independent Tony Windsor to retire from politics. The case was referred to the Australian Federal Police but no charges were laid.

    The townhouse where Joyce and Campion are reportedly living was described in a recent real estate advertisement as “quite simply, the most superior residential project ever undertaken in Armidale”.

    Journos (and ALP staffers I suspect) are busily burrowing through Barnaby's expense claims. Turns out he spent an unusually large amount of time in Canberra last year when Parliament wasn't sitting. All at taxpayer expense. Wonder if he had any reason to want to be there rather than home? o_O

    Mine tinks Barnaby better be wearing a cast iron cover over his arse because the. Average Aussie is PISSED

    We care less about him dipping his wick than about the fact he was effectively making us pay for his mistress

    He's not exactly a heartthrob is he? He's hanging on, maybe this scandal won't be enough to unseat him. The ranks seem to have closed around him though Warren Truss seemed to be gritting his teeth when he said that Barnaby is a good leader.
    Did you see the bloke, (? a constituent)who snickered when saying he hadn't seen Barnaby at Mass lately?

    I don’t know Sally. The plot is thickening. You always take what a tabloid says with a grain of salt but it seems his free rent wasn’t free after all. His millionaire mate received a few thousand dollars for some unbeknown reason, which Barnaby is investigating.

    I don't think it is Barnaby that should go. It's Turnbullshit that should go, it's Turnbullshit that moved her, against Barnaby's wishes. (It meant that it was harder to get a bit). It was Turnbullshit that created a job, it was Turnbullshit that was worried about Barnaby losing the election, not because he is a good leader, definitely not because he is an exemplary politician, but purely because he needed the numbers.

    The latest Commandment from the PM-Thou shalt not fornicate with the staff. How funny!
    Who is going to oversee this, and how?

    Look Canberra has become a running joke. Time to piss them all off, all the parties, write a new constitution, a BILL of RIGHTS, and form the Republic of Australia.
