Abbott Backs Joyce

1 Mar

From the Sydney Morning Herald

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has defended Barnaby Joyce amid questions over the coalition finance spokesman’s economic credibility:

Barnaby Joyce has not been responsible for the actual disasters in people’s lives that (Environment Minister) Peter Garrett has been responsible for,” Mr Abbott told Network Ten.

Mr Abbott said he was happy with Senator Joyce’s performance.

“Every member of the team including Barnaby is doing a good job. That doesn’t mean that all of us can’t on occasions lift our game but I’m confident in the team.”
