Is the sun now 'setting' on Barnaby Joyce's political career?

Is the sun now 'setting' on Barnaby Joyce's political career?”

Malcolm Turnbull says neither he nor his office had any role in creating a job for Barnaby Joyce's now-partner.

Speaking on the Today show on Monday, Political Editor Chris Uhlmann said there was "growing discontent" in the National Party, with party elders believing Mr Joyce was doing irreparable brand damage.

Mr Joyce is now living with Ms Campion in Armidale, New South Wales.

Ahead of the Nationals party meeting, the deputy prime minister's New South Wales Nationals colleague John Williams said he did not know if Joyce would lead the party to the next election.

The spokesman said the deputy prime minister was still married when Ms Campion's appointments were made.

'I really don't know enough about it to be able to talk about it on television.

Mr Joyce is expecting a child with Ms Campion after it was revealed he with his wife of 24-years, Natalie, with whom he shares four children.

'It's a private matter, it's a tough matter and I don't have any more to say about it'.

Ms Savva also could not see the point of the Deputy Prime Minister's appearance on the ABC 7.30 Program.

The impact of Joyce's affair has had on those around him hit no-one harder than his now-ex wife, Natalie, and their daughters.

The report comes a day after it emerged a second parliamentary job was created for Ms Campion after the first role was lost following Mr Canavan's resignation.

The Australian have reported that this property was provided for free for a local businessman (and known friend of Mr Joyce) Greg Maguire.More as this story develops.

Campion is now pregnant, and had been involved with Joyce since previous year.

'Government has no business interfering in people's personal lives, we wouldn't want to, ' she said.

Joyce is facing mounting pressure on multiple fronts, including whether there were any breaches of the government's ministerial code of conduct, which explicitly forbids ministers employing partners, and also forbids the partners of ministers being employed in other offices without "the prime minister's express approval".

'I think it is time for Malcolm Turnbull to give a proper statement about what's happened there, ' Labor finance spokesman Jim Chalmers said on Saturday, according to Sydney Morning Herald.

Ms Campion reportedly retained the six-figure salary she was earning while working for Senator Canavan.

'Naturally we feel deceived and hurt by the actions of Barnaby and the staff member involved'.

Mr Joyce was photographed with Ms Campion at Different Drummer, a bar in inner-west Glebe, on February 23, 2017.

In that time, Mr Joyce will save nearly $14,000 from not paying rent on the property.
