Political Office

Photographed by Susan from Loire Valley Time Travel.

One morning while we were in Australia we had breakfast in a café directly opposite Barnaby Joyce's constituency office. At the time he was Deputy Prime Minister, but the rumour mill was working overtime and it was obvious he wasn't going to be in the position long. He appears to be the sort of politician that says whatever he thinks will be popular with conservative rural voters, changing his mind or making conflicting statements on subjects such as climate change, environmental protection and immigration. He's a committed Catholic who, during the time we were there, was found to be expecting a child with one of his staff. After supporting a campaign to prevent Australians with dual nationalities to take up parliamentary positions, it turned out that he also held New Zealand citizenship. Most famously (and in fact, quite rightly) he clashed with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard when they brought two dogs illegally into Australia and found themselves threatened with the dogs' euthanasia.

Do what I say, but don't do what I do. Hypocrisy is rampant!

Yes, I think there is not much question he's a hypocrite.
