A man who has voted on thousands of new policies in both the upper and lower Federal Houses of Parliament while being illegally elected there in he first place and taking home hundreds of thousands of tax-payer dollars a year, has said he’s bloody sick of the government being in his life.
Former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has sent chills down the spines of his constituents over the Christmas break, with a sweaty, morbid and almost helpless selfie posted to social media on Christmas Eve.
“Now, you probably wonder what politicians do on Christmas Eve. Well, when it’s drought, feed cattle,” Mr Joyce began. The video only got weirder from there.

Barnaby Joyce then veered into a new brand of political indifference, where he somehow appeared to believe and deny climate change in the same rant.
“Now, you don’t have to convince me that the climate’s not changing; it is changing. My problem’s always been do you believe a new tax is going to change it back?” Mr Joyce continued.

“Look, I just don’t want the government any more in my life, I’m sick of the government being in my life. “
These comments appear to have confused his own electorate, who he has openly refused to listen to, even going so far as abstaining from their wishes during the gay marriage vote and abstaining from the ballot despite their electorate’s overwhelming support from same-sex unions.
“I thought the Government is the only reason anyone knows who Barnaby is” says one voter, Guy Raspuds (potato farmer, 66).
“And the government seems to have been very patient with him while he got his personal life in order. Who gets sacked from the Deputy Prime Minister role twice?”
However, Barnaby’s video gets even weirder, when he begins pointing out the need to believe in God if we want to stop climate change”
“Now, the other thing I think we’ve got to acknowledge is, you know, there’s a higher authority that’s beyond our comprehension” he continued.
“And it’s right up there in the sky. Unless we understand that’s got to be respected, then we’re just fools. We’re going to get nailed.”
It is not sure which family this renowned Catholic family spent Christmas with this year, or why the fuck he was feeding the busted cows $3000 dollars worth of oaten hay usually reserved for racehorses.
