Found – Have you seen Steve? Missing person

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.
