In 65 years in journalism the Owl cannot remember a political story that has dominated the news for so long as the current Barnaby Joyce affair. It is a yarn that has something for everyone. There's a dash of cheerful smut, a sprinkling of rorting to accompany the rooting and now the excitement of a government on the brink of collapse. Who could ask for anything more.And leading the way in bringing this yarn to the masses has been Sydney's Daily Telegraph.
The ABC reports: "The Coalition is in dangerous territory, with Barnaby Joyce and Malcolm Turnbull exchanging barbs over the fallout from the Deputy PM's affair with a staffer."Will the political marriage end in divorce?
It is not a matter of the job needing Barnaby Joyce, it is Barnaby Joyce needing the job. Clearly the Deputy Prime Minister is not intending to move anywhere. He will cop the humiliation of being passed over for the honour of acting as the real Prime Minister. He will fight to the very last to keep what he's got.Which is not strange really. The man now has two families to support with a property settlement not far away.
