Guardian Gabrielle Chan

Author: Kate

Prominent rural advocates have become increasingly vocal over a potential return of Barnaby Joyce to the National party leadership as the prospect of a concerted independent push in rural areas gains momentum after the Wentworth byelection.

A nascent political movement, Anyone But Nats, has started to run advertising across northern NSW ahead of the 2019 state and federal elections. It has been funded by the IT businessman, Charles Tym, whose family has donated $20,000 to fund 400 advertising spots across regional television stations.

The Northern Daily Leader Madeline Link

Author: Kate

SANTOS has been given a further 1000 day royalty-free handout for coal seam gas extraction in Narrabri.
