Barnaby Joyce To Charge For Answering Questions In Parliament

Former Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce won’t be providing an answer in Question Time for under 10k, it has emerged.

In an interview with The Shovel – which we had to take out a six figure loan to pay for – Mr Joyce said he was sick and tired of being hounded with questions from the opposition benches without any financial compensation whatsoever.

“Look, I’m happy to answer the member for Maribyrnong’s question on water resourcing issues in rural New South Wales; I’d love the chance to give my side of the story. But why should I give it away for nothing?” Mr Joyce said.

Joyce said he would donate all monies raised to his mortgage.
