Vikki Campion reveals she bought abortion drugs as she introduces baby Joyce

06 June, 2018, 13:35 | Author: Rafael Roberts
  • Since the affair was revealed the 51-year-old quit his Nationals leader position which left him with a pay cut from $416,000 to $203,000

Barnaby Joyce says he clung to his job as scandal swirled "more from spite than logic" and has labelled parliamentary colleagues who recommended his pregnant mistress terminate her pregnancy as the "scum of the earth".

Joyce and Campion, who recently welcomed son Sebastian Curtis Scott Joyce, spoke openly about their relationship in the Sunday Night interview, and claimed Campion was pressured to abort her baby by some members of Canberra's conservative cohort.

During the interview which delved into the politician's decision to leave his wife and start a new family with former staff Campion, the couple said you couldn't choose who you fall in love with - something that Keller found to be fairly hypocritical given Joyce's long standing and vocal opposition to marriage equality. Mr Joyce said. "I never expected a gold star, and I did not expect the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia to go and do a doorstop on it".

The former Deputy Prime Minister has faced criticism from both sides of politics after it emerged he and Ms Campion were expected to receive the huge sum for their tell-all interview.

"I bought the medicine online", she said.

"I wouldn't want to tar and brush everyone in the National Party as like that, at all", she said.

But Joyce said the "fault doesn't revolve around Vikki, it resides with me".

"They've been going through this for quite some time now".

Major breast cancer study counted W MI patients
It is estimated that 3,000 to 5,000 women in the United Kingdom are likely to avoid chemotherapy every year following the trial . They were scored using the Oncotype DX genetic test, which assesses how the cancer is likely to respond to treatment.

Nationals deputy leader Bridget McKenzie said she felt people had heard enough of the story, and Australians were ready to move on.

I believe that a woman has a right over her own body up to a point, certainly up until the baby has a heartbeat. "Nothing's going to me, nothing's going to Vikki, this is for a young bloke called Sebastian Joyce", Joyce said.

Joyce's political critics weren't impressed either, with several calling on the former deputy prime minister to resign in the wake of the interview.

Viewers criticised the interview for failing to address key questions, including why the pair was living in a rent-free apartment donated by a supporter of Joyce, and whether Joyce was trying to obfuscate his affair by securing Campion a job in another political department. "Just think about Vikki Campion and the obvious implication is that she was having a relationship with somebody else at the time and he was on a plane somewhere at the time of conception", Webster said.

"Remember there are other people in this interview, being Vikki and Seb, so if it was just an interview with me as a politician, sure, I am not going to charge for that", Mr Joyce said. "He has sold himself out cheap".

Nationals leader Michael McCormack, who replaced Mr Joyce as Deputy Prime Minister, said today he knew nothing about it.

In late 2017, he confirmed he and his wife had separated after 24 years of marriage.

Addressing the backlash surrounding Mr Joyce and Ms Campion's $150,000 payment for the interview, Mr Cullen said Seven had "earnt their trust and their respect" before they agreed to the interview.
