Blog - Senator Barnaby Joyce
I usually like what the Shadow Finance Minister Barnaby Joyce has to say. I find him refreshingly different, honestand ready to speak out on issues that don’t always tow the party line.
I guess his comments last week about Australia’s foreign aid certainly fit that description. The only difference is that this time I find myself disagreeing with him in a big way. Speaking at the National Press Club in Canberra, Senator Joyce suggested that aid to the third world should instead be spent on reducing food costs in Australia.
