New England becomes interesting

The seat of New England held by Barnaby Joyce has become interesting for a number of reasons.

Last election no-one but no-one wanted to listen to Tony Windsor and why he thought the ALP should have been in government after the 2010 election. He was vilified for his decision.
After a few years of Tony Abbott being Prime minister He is now vindicated.

Both ex-ante and now ex-post his decision is seen as quite wise. the voters now seen they were wood-ducked on the last election. Joyce being one of the main people behind that.
Joyce is now deputy PM. He can't say I support this but the government went against me.People are also now seeing him as a carpet bagger now given he is not a local.

Life is becoming interesting particularly since Turnbull has lost his mojo.
