Barilaro melts down after huge endorsement for independent candidate – Upper Hunter By-Election

Malcolm Turnbull strikes back after being dumped by the coalition climate change body and has endorsed Independent Candidate Kirsty O’Connell.

The news sent Deputy Premier and Nationals leader John Barilaro into a meltdown lashing out at former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in an interview for ABC NEWS

 “The arrogance of Malcolm Turnbull knows no bounds”.

“It is one thing to lecture regional communities from the comforts of his Point Piper mansion, but to parade himself across the Upper Hunter and actively campaign against the livelihoods of thousands of people.

“He is an absolute disgrace.”

If independent candidate Kirsty O’Connell were to snatch the seat from the Nationals the Berejiklian government becomes a minority government having to negotiate with the cross bench every step of the way.

The bigger question is can the current Government continue to be functional as a minority government until March 2023.
