    what isnt normal imo is when he has done nothing politically wrong he should be shamed by the msm into resigning from his job. Personal matters again imo does not affect the way he does his job & i think he was doing his job ...thats more than you can say about most politicians he was there for the right reasons

    Barnaby Joyce charged taxpayers to stay 100km from home

    "Barnaby Joyce claimed expenses to stay 100km from his family home for 26 nights in one month while he was still with his wife.
    The disgraced Deputy Prime Minister charged taxpayers $372 a night to stay in Armidale, 90 minutes from his home, in March last year.
    The figures were first published by the Sunday Telegraph which said it could find ‘no record of media events or parliamentary business in Armidale on those nights."

    Joyce charged taxpayers to see AFL game, took RAAF charter flight home

    "Barnaby Joyce charged the taxpayer to stay overnight in Melbourne after attending an AFL game last year, before arranging a $6000 “special purpose” defence force charter flight back to Tamworth the following day."

    "Parliamentary documents show Mr Joyce claimed $442 in travelling allowance on May 13 last year for an overnight stay in Melbourne, citing “official business” as Deputy Prime Minister.

    The Nationals leader declared in his register of member’s interests that he was a guest for the City vs Country at the May 13 AFL night match between Geelong and Essendon at the MCG, with the gift including “hospitality in the form of food and drinks”."

    "Defence Department documents show the cost to the taxpayer for the charter flight was $6440."

    "I will continue to fight for the people in the weatherboard and iron, for the people on the peripheral and the small regional towns. I used my experience of these towns and my goal in life will always be to try to make their lives better."

    To be fair to Queenslanders:
    • this behavior wouldn't fly in SE Queensland, just the rural inland regions
    • Barnaby's last electorate was New England, which is in NSW

    Lefty media’s continued attack on Joyce is based upon a fallacy.

    Edit to add: their argument would have more credibility if he’d shagged a bloke.

    Funnily enough, the Republican Governor of Missouri also faced a similar reckoning today.
