Barnaby Joyce slams ‘ultimate entitled person’ Malcolm Turnbull
Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has called on Australians to back independent candidates at the election, a move likely to anger his former Liberal colleagues.
The former Liberal leader will use an address at the Washington Harvard Club today to urge a vote for independents – if they wish to be distanced from dominant factions in the major parties.
Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce hit out at Mr Turnbull, saying he was the “ultimate entitled person”.
Mr Joyce said Mr Turnbull is engaging in a process which will “make our nation weaker” and turned his back on the party, which made him prime minister.
“I’d say to Mr Turnbull have a little bit more consideration and do something statesmanlike and say ‘whatever you do, we’re all going to have to make a sacrifice; we’re not going to get everything we want’,” he told Sky News Australia.
“‘When you vote, vote for yourself but vote for your nation as well’.”
