Sports rorter Bridget McKenzie back on the front bench courtesy of Barnaby Joyce

by | Jun 29, 2021 | QED Featured

Bridget McKenzie was forced to resign in February 2020 after the “sports rorts” affair but, as are the ways of the National Party, misdeeds are quickly forgotten if you back the right leader at the right time. So just like her good buddy, recently resurrected National Party Leader Barnaby Joyce, McKenzie is back on the Coalition government front bench as Minister for Regionalisation, Regional education and Regional Communications.

A perfect spot for someone who has perfected the art of favouring just the right electorate at the right time …

Here are “Six of the best” on Bridget McKenzie from our QED database, demonstrating the desperate need for a federal ICAC.
