Malcolm wipes smile off Barnaby’s face

Bruce Apps, Townsend, NSW. 

It is now four days after the attack by the prime minister upon opposition leader Bill Shorten in Question Time and my how the look on Barnaby Joyce’s face has changed.

Last Thursday it was all full of laughter but today, after the Liberals in Western Australia announced that they were going to preference One Nation at the expense of the National Party, I must say there has certainly been a big difference, Barnaby is almost a ‘broken man’.

It now appears to be true, the saying: ‘Never trust the Liberal Party as liars will always let you down.’

How true when it comes to preferences and every vote is a winner.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
