Almost two-thirds of readers want to see Barnaby Joyce step down

SIXTY-FIVE per cent of readers have said that Barnaby Joyce should stand down.

The decision to move Ms Campion to other ministerial offices also prompted claims the Deputy Prime Minister had breached the ministerial code of conduct – usually a sackable offence.

During the interview Mr Joyce said he did not know if he would face a spill motion when Parliament resumed next week.

The Nationals leader has refused to resign despite Liberal and some Nationals MPs publicly conceding the affair has damaged the government, and Mr Turnbull's blistering condemnation of his deputy's personal behaviour.

Calare MP Andrew Gee has also thrown his support behind the leader saying the “matter has obviously been a topic of discussion” but said Mr Joyce still had his support and the support of the party room.
