Defiant Joyce Says He Will Continue To Be A Voice For Farmers, Right Across The North Island

Following the High Court’s decision declaring him ineligible to be a member of parliament, Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce says he will continue to fight for those doing it tough, from Wellington to Whangarei.

“We’re an island nation, we’re an agricultural nation at heart, and so I’ll always speak up for people on the land, whether they be in New Plymouth or Te Awamatu,” he said.

Mr Joyce said he was not going to let this set back distract him from the job at hand. “There’s a lot going on in the capital right now. But I’m determined not to let what’s happening in Wellington effect us out here in the districts”
