| On the campaign trail in the New England by-election, but where's Barnaby Joyce?
Is the outcome of this weekend's New England by-election a foregone conclusion?
Judging by the way Barnaby Joyce is campaigning, you could be forgiven for thinking it is.
"Barnaby Joyce believes that he is going to win this seat on his reputation and he doesn't need to campaign," said CountryMinded Party candidate, Peter Mailler.
"His strategy is to not engage in the conversation because we are going to ask questions about issues that he can't answer."
Another of Mr Joyce's opponents says New Englanders feel this election is an unnecessary formality.
Independent Rob Taber, who polled a respectable 13.8 per cent as the main independent candidate in 2013, second only to Mr Joyce on 26 per cent, says this campaign has an odd feel.
"It's like a 'Claytons' election'; the election to have when you aren't really having an election," Mr Taber told 7.30.
"It's just got a funny feel about it, this campaign, much different to the last two I stood for, and I just can't work out what's going on."
Have they checked for him at home ?

|There shouldn't even be an election. Waste of taxpayers money, and for what? Because some small-minded %#^%head decided to talk about where a person's parents were born! What about Muslims, when they try to enter politics? Do they "embrace Christianity", even though we're told that they can get sworn in using the (Quran, Koran, Q'ran, etc., how many ways are there?) Does that mean that they renounce all ties with their religion/ideology? If so, doesn't that mean that they are not technically Muslim anymore, legally? So, why don't they use the standard Bible, like everyone else? It seems that blind eyes are being constantly turned, (for certain people), and never looking away for certain others! Perhaps there ARE double standards, after all!|

| "Where's Barnaby Joyce?"
I have been wondering the same thing for years.

| Apparently, a reporter from The Independent Australia has been 'stalking' Barnaby, and his daughter is driving around Tamworth in his campaign ute, complete with signage, urging voters not to vote for her Dad.
Only a rumour of course.
If it was Curly, we'd know all about it by now.....or if it was Shanghai Sam stating the bloody obvious that someone's phone has been tapped, we'd know about that - oops, we do.
Only a rumour, of course.

Curly would be all over it by now if it were true.

This was the article I was referring to. The 'stalker' is identified.

| Well Bill,
He wouldn't be the first to have an affair with a staffer, looks like his up and comings are coming home to roost or roast depending on how one could perceive the actions of another dishonest person in politics.

|Talking to mates barneby was a failed accountant|

| If half of that is true, Barnaby is in big trouble, deep shit, call it what you like. I am not saying it is not true, I have no idea. But reading the article, it has a BS smell about it to me. Either that or it is just plain poorly written.
Still, get the Weinstein and Spacey theory out there and Barnaby is surely sunk.
