If there is any truth to this then it is outright and blatant corruption.
I’m shocked. Surely a politician wouldn’t use his insider knowledge for personal financial gain.? I wonder what the final sale price will be…
According to a map published on May 1, there will be a new section of rail built between Narromine and Narrabri.
Serendipitously, this line will go through a little place called Gwabegar where Barnaby Joyce happens to own two neighbouring properties totalling 2400 acres.
When he bought them, the locals were bemused. A successful farmer and exporter from a nearby area said of the Joyce’s purchase, ”This is scalded country. It could not support the number of animals that would be needed to make a return on investment. It is a strange buy, put it that way.”
Perhaps not so strange now.
