Barnaby porkspectives

Joyce attacked the ABC, saying an analysis of the national broadcaster would probably say to close it down.

“If I did a cost-benefit analysis on public transport they’d probably say it doesn’t pay for itself,” he said.

“It was one of the processes before the election, now the election’s over, a higher authority has had something to say on this, and that’s the Australian people.”The Greens said if the cost-benefit analysis was negative, one could only assume Joyce was relocating the agency to his own electorate for personal political reasons.

“Unless the acting prime minister releases positive cost-benefit, we can only assume that moving these families over 700km to his own electorate is pork barrelling at its most blatant. Relocation of the APVMA would bring 175 jobs to Joyce’s seat of New England by taking them away from the ACT.
