Embattled Nationals leader and Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce is on the ropes and under pressure to resign.
Mr Joyce survived a vote in parliament aimed at forcing him out as he denied claims he asked a friend for a rent-free townhouse when his marriage broke down last year.
Mr Joyce lived rent-free in businessman Greg Maguire's Armidale townhouse, which he moved into as he was preparing for the New England by-election last December. He said at the time he was no longer an MP or a minister, having been forced to resign because of his New Zealand citizenship.
His relationship with his now-pregnant partner and former media advisor Vikki Campion has also raised concerns about the potential misuse of taxpayer funds, after she was shuffled around jobs in other senior MPs' offices.
Is Barnaby Joyce now a liability who should resign? Or should he hang on and help preserve the government’s majority?
