Yeah but she still would have had to have sex with Barnaby, can you put a price in that???

She could marry him to put an end to that

How does the whole Qld LNP thing work?  Could they put one the libs from Qld such as Ciobo in?

It's become traditional that the NAT (nee: Country) leader is the Deputy Prime-Minister, and that is not likely to change.

Given that Bridget McKenzie is the current NATs deputy, it's interesting that she's not even mentioned by any of the pundits as a contender.

Leader is from the lower house, McKenzie is a senator

True, and yet they are touting Matt Canavan?

Meanwhile, Clive Palmer is talking up a return... eyeing off the public funding?

He s still in parliament. 

Still being paid. 

Just no power. 

Still getting crazy super. 

Mind you, that's going to be a sizable pay-cut.

So, why did Barnaby suddenly change his mind? Has he simply had enough? (Unlikely, I would have thought). Does this complaint from W.A. have legs? Did he get tapped on the shoulder? Discuss...

No he isn’t. The old scheme only applies to those first elected before 2004. Barnaby didn’t even get sworn in until after June 2005. Only entitled to federal public service super (employer contributions of 15% of base - backbencher - salary). That’s it.

Maybe the free apartment has even been paid for by Johnny through a backdoor account.

 

Put an offer on that apartment about 4yrs ago - at $175K less than asking - all it was worth....maybe wanted to shitstir a little.  Backdoor =  pertinent but nothing to do with Mr Depp ;)
