EXCLUSIVE: BARNABY JOYCE SET TO LAUNCH LEADERSHIP COUP

October 15, 2018

Rumours are rife that former leader of the Nationals Barnaby “beetrooter” Joyce is set call a leadership spill as early as next month.

Joyce reluctantly quit as Deputy Prime Minister and Nationals leader back in February after revelations of his affair with his former staffer Vikki Campion caused a public furore.

However, his successor Michael McCormack has failed to make any headway with supporters of Joyce now advocating for the former leader to take another tilt at the top job before the year’s end.

Sensing imminent defeat at the next Federal election, many within the Nationals believe salvation of the party rests with Barnaby Joyce and his “straight shooting” style.

Marginal seat holders began to depend on his blunt, candid style, with a majority believing his leadership could save them come election time.

Many believe Mr Joyce still has strong leadership ambitions, and that he has “worked hard” to rebuild his tattered reputation.

The former leader has been spotted wining and dining colleagues and journalists with Ms Campion and his daughters by his side.

    The second cuming.

    So to speak

    The Second manifestation of conservative disconnection from voters (sick of political machinations) with brickbats, most likely.

    Liberal Party: depose multiple Leaders in few years…Nothing To See Here…

    Nationals: advertising the impending removal of a current Leader, by a recalcified, recently deposed BigRooter (recently deposed, presumably, for acting out decidedly ‘non-conservative’ lifestyle in a public conflagration) in the not too distant future…

    Coalition: vote Us, for stability, or else, unstable government…

    Voters who aren’t political limpets: …where’s my baseball bat, hang on, get me a sock full of billiard balls too…

    … former leader to take another tilt at the top job before the year’s end

    Appropriate words, sreb …

    to take another tilt at the windmill may be more apt … Don Quixote was as mad as a cut snake too … whoo! Intended!

    Who’s the leader of the Nationals anyway? What’s Tim Fisher doing?

    Tim Fisher? Happily retired I hope, as all 70+ Aussies should be … especially VVs …

    I see its OK to be white according to the SloMo government … why do we need that sort of shit?

    And I read where SloMo wants to move the Aussie Consulate to Jerusalem … and that is a purely religious move …

    And I will not discuss why I say that, until the people arguing its OK have finished reading

    why do we need that sort of shit?

    toylet a must! For today’s politics (religion is still controlling the world – Jewish, Christianity and Islam all vie for the centre of the world as they know it … End of Days begins in Jerusalem … (end of JC?)

    ‘Tis an interesting and absorbing read … want an ebook copy? Contact U know Who.

    BTW, komplements of KL!

    This one was fucking captivating!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalin:_The_Court_of_the_Red_Tsar

    For all of the droll rightwing arsehats who choose to call anyone left of John HoWARd ‘socialist’…have a read & attempt to understand the purges between ‘socialists’…and other variously nuanced revelations.

    Great book. Really.

  14. October 18, 2018 7:25 pm

    I end up reading most of these via Dad. His historical library is colossal.

  15. October 18, 2018 7:29 pm

    KL, is also a legend in my mind.

    A gem amongst the dregs of bloggers/internet commenters I’ve encountered.

    I will read it TB. Dad probably has it on his shelf. Very topical.

    Watching The Despot of America pandering to The House of Saud, in light of recent (increasingly hard to excuse) developments is disgusting; but unsurprising.

  16. October 18, 2018 7:31 pm

    And, it shouldn’t need to be said, but I will go on the record and say that “Relocating the Embassy, in the footsteps of Donald Antagonist, is wilfully stupid…but worse, blatantly politically expedient; and desperate.

    Just when you thought you’d seen it all.

  17. October 18, 2018 7:31 pm

    * here’s the talking mark I missed at the end…”

  18. October 18, 2018 7:32 pm

    The authors name actually made me go back & recall why I was so familiar with him, TB.

    I will probably reread, Court Of The Red Tsar. Cheers!

    $110 billion of weaponry speaks loud in the mind of a seven year old real estate “mogul” who lost two thirds of his dad’ bequeathment and thinks he has a brain bigger than a golf ball .. oh and is another godbotherer … who sells weapons of war …

    Just when you thought you’d seen it all.

    Read The Jerusalem History explains a lot … nearly all …

    I will probably reread, Court Of The Red Tsar. Cheers!

    I’ll check that out myself … big difference between Communist and Socialist (Many Communist countries use Socialist very, very loosely)

    Trading info … brings back old mem’ries, mate!
