The ABC's Virginia Trioli on Nationals senator Barnaby Joyce :
Barnaby Joyce :
"Maybe I am crazy. Maybe this isn't parliament but an asylum. And if I'm not Barnaby, who am I? And then, who is Barnaby? If I am crazy, it would explain a lot about this place."I'd like to hear more from the Existential Barnaby Joyce.
Virginia Trioli and Barnaby Joyce on Insiders in 2005 :
They've been sparring, happily, for years.
VIRGINIA TRIOLI: Barnaby....Kim Beazley, the Opposition Leader, mentioned to me on Friday that he thinks you're a spent political force, that you've been bought off left, right and centre.... How do you respond?
SENATOR BARNABY JOYCE: I respect that he would have a very good position to make a judgment like that.
VIRGINIA TRIOLI: You're learning, mate, you're learning!
Barnaby Joyce uses the controversy kicked off by Trioli's unprofessionalism to good effect in this piece published at The Punch :
@craigreucassel, on Twitter :
"(I admire) the way Virginia Trioli helps the hearing impaired understand a Barnaby Joyce interview."
