Election 2016: Barnaby bites back

REPLY: Member for New England Barnaby Joyce has said if Mr Windsor wants to make an allegation rather than an implication then he can go aheadINDEPENDENT candidate for the New England Tony Windsor took a swipe at political rival, the Deputy Prime Minister, Barnaby Joyce, yesterday over donations made to the federal Nationals from mining company Santos, but Mr Joyce returned fire with equal vigour.

Mr Windsor called out a “correlation” between the introduction of the federal water trigger in 2011 and what he described as “a steady stream of large donations to the federal Nationals” from Santos and other CSG mining companies at that time. He said the donations were the “the very definition of a conflict of interest”.

“It is very sad when a campaign comes down to this level,” Mr Joyce said in a statement yesterday.

“I want this campaign to be about delivery. Whether it is a sporting precinct in Tamworth, a $400 million wind farm at Glen Ines, the APVMA into Armidale, or the completion of Chaffey Dam.

“It is sad and, to be honest somewhat pathetic, when someone gives a doorstop about an allegation which, even in our own statement, they can’t give us any details about,” Mr Joyce said.

The federal water trigger set parameters for the federal government to assess the impacts of proposed coal seam gas and large coal mining developments on water resources.
