Weatherboard & iron : politics, the bush and me
Joyce, Barnaby, 1967-2018
Think you know Barnaby Joyce? Think again. The former Leader of the Australian National Party, and the Deputy Prime Minister of Australia between 2016 and 2018, Joyce's world came crashing down around him in spectacular fashion when it was revealed that he was expecting a child with new partner, Vikki Campion, a former member of his political staff. In Weatherboard and Iron: Politics, the Bush and Me, Joyce not only provides a context to this calamitous series of events but also offers an insight into the inner workings of politics and the media in this country. Back to the backbench in life's ever-changing game of snakes and ladders, this book outlines how his country upbringing informed and drove his political career a career that is far from being over.
