Barnaby Joyce declares 'anything that's personal in nature is nobody else's business'

Eileen GuzmanMar 05, 2018

Calling the issue of paternity a "grey area", backbencher Mr Joyce criticised the media for failing to check the "fact".

Again, those comments come very, very shortly after Joyce insinuated the child's parentage is a "grey area" in an apparent attempt to criticise News Corp's original report that Campion is definitely pregnant with Joyce's child.

In recent days questions have been raised about Mr Joyce and Ms Campion's conflicting travel schedules at the time of conception.

She said she addressed the same question to Ms Campion and received no response.

Remember when Barnaby said the headlines must stop as they are not fair on his private life?

"They never even asked if it was Joyce's bundle".

The Age earlier reported that Mr Joyce's travel schedule could indeed throw doubt over the paternity of the baby.

She is due to have the baby in just over a month.

Mr Joyce's controversial statement comes in the wake of rumours by Liberal MPs suggesting he was not the father.

On Monday Ms Hanson accused the former deputy prime minister of not only destroying his own political career but trying to take the National Party down with him.

At the time, the newspaper said the pair was expecting a child together and its reporter Sharri Markson insisted she put the question of whether Mr Joyce was the father directly to his office before her story was published.

Mr condemned The Daily Telegraph for its "outrageous" intrusion on Ms Campion's privacy by publishing a photo of her "crossing the road". He said he would not be taking any tests to prove paternity.
