Letter to the editor | Chester has had a ‘shocking tantrum’

Marcia Davidson, Morwell

THE only insult to Gippslanders regarding the federal National Party’s leadership switch to Barnaby Joyce has been the shocking tantrum from Darren Chester over his dumping from the Cabinet.

Instead of working with Australia’s new Deputy PM, Mr Chester has not only launched a series of attacks on Barnaby Joyce, but also publicly endorsed the Green left and its attack on the reliable energy and economic sustenance provided by the Latrobe Valley coal industry.

Gippslanders should be very disappointed to see Mr Chester refusing to support a major local industry.

Thank goodness that Barnaby Joyce and Matthew Canavan will speak common sense on the importance of coal.
