One Of His Biggest Political Enemies Says The Barnaby Joyce Scandal Is Off Limits

Feb 7, 2018


Barnaby Joyce’s direct political rival says the deputy PM’s personal life is a no-go.

Mr Joyce made front page news on Wednesday when it was revealed he is expecting a baby with a former staffer.

“Can I say as his shadow minister that this is a personal matter,” Anthony Albanese told FIVEaa. “In my view there is no public interest in public discussion of it.”

“People cannot possibly know what people’s personal circumstances are and certainly I, and I would hope no one on my side of politics is going to participate in a public debate… I want to take about policy difference not personal lives.”
