The latest letterbox drop from Nationals’ candidate for Monaro, John Barilaro, clearly puts the NSW Liberals logo ahead of his own party’s. Is he so embarrassed to be a Nat that he’s pretending he belongs to both parties?
I’ve heard he ran for Queanbeyan Council as an Independent so clearly his party allegiances are sketchy at best.
Having both logos on the flyer seems pretty dishonest to me, but perhaps it’s a nod to the fact that if the Coalition is elected it’s much more likely to be Barry O’Farrells brood of Sydney-based Liberals running the show.
It certainly doesn’t seem to go with his statement that he’ll have the power to deliver results for the region ‘when’ – not ‘if’ – the State has a new Government next month.
But perhaps he has a secret plan to jump the good ship Nationals when Barry cuts them adrift?
