Barnaby Joyce has said the National Party is “only too willing” to consider a banking inquiry but not until after the result of the New England by-election is known.
It’s extraordinary that Barnaby Joyce won’t tell his local residents whether or not he supports a Banking Royal Commission.
New England residents are entitled to know whether Barnaby Joyce is willing to back a banking inquiry. If he remains silent on the issue, voters will be entitled to assume he will not.
Labor Candidate David Ewings certainly will support a Banking Royal Commission.
