Barnaby Joyce and the Nationals have shown their true colours. Their decentralisation rhetoric is just that.
The Nationals will hold their Federal Conference in Canberra, the very city Joyce continues to demonise.
Did Barnaby Joyce insist that the conference be held in a regional town? Apparently not.
For once he seems very quiet.
No spin about spreading the largesse to the regions.
No pressure on the Nats to spend their Conference money in the bush.
His silence is deafening. Barnaby Joyce is all Hat and no Cowboy!
