Former deputy prime minister John Anderson says Barnaby Joyce should consider resigning from Parliament for the sake of his new son. Anderson adds that he has not contemplated contesting Joyce’s seat of New England, despite being approached to do so by some National Party insiders. Sources within the party have suggested that Anderson would most likely gain pre-selection for the seat in the wake of revelations about Joyce’s relationship with a former staffer. Former prime minister Tony Abbott says Joyce still has a future in federal politics.
