Dumped minister’s loveless diss on new leader Barnaby Joyce
Former veterans affair minister Darren Chester has been replaced after backing the wrong horse for the Nationals leadership, and his response was brutally honest.
Mr Chester supported Michael McCormack in the party’s leadership spill last week, and lost to Barnaby Joyce.
Having been moved to the backbench, he called out an “incoherent” conversation he had with his new leader following the demotion.
