Barnaby Joyce is the Deputy PM again. What’s next for the Prime Minister?

Joe believes having Barnaby Joyce as his deputy could help the Prime Minister politically, to appease both urban and regional electorates.
“I don’t think it’s all bad news for ScoMo.
“It’s not necessarily a bad thing to have a rebellious, outspoken MP … in your party room if you’re trying to walk both sides of the street.”
