Barnaby: “This Protein And Chemical-Enriched Abomination”

6 Dec

From Strewth! in The Australian:

A stretch too far

While the [ALP national] conference was heading towards its conclusion, senators Barnaby Joyce and George Brandis were off to the wedding of former 2UE broadcaster Michael Smith on the NSW central coast. Expecting a regular hire car to collect them, they walked out to be confronted by a stretch limousine. Remarked Brandis, “I think that hideous thing is for us.” Joyce asked the driver who he was waiting for. Consulting a piece of paper, the driver confirmed Brandis’s worst fears: “Someone called Barnaby.” As a “tired” Joyce related to Strewth yesterday, “We sat in the back among the changing neon colours of this protein and chemical-enriched abomination, glancing at one another uncomfortably.” The measured Brandis ignored Joyce’s exhortation to “be loud and proud” and disembark in style at the venue, instead waiting inside the limo until any possible eyewitnesses had moved away.

Barnaby: Support Mike Smith

18 Sep

Message From Barnaby:

As you know I have spoken to Michael Smith quite a bit over the last few years.

Mike was on 4BC Drive in Queensland and went to 2UE in Sydney, but it now appears he has ruffled the wrong feathers as I haven’t heard him on the radio lately.

I hope that this is not the case but there may be certain people in this building in Canberra who are a bit upset with Mike.

Well, as one maverick to another and a pretty keen supporter of free speech in the Fourth Estate, I ask you to sign a petition in support of Mike.

Here are the details should you wish to do so.
