Australian P M bans sex between ministers and staff

                Barnaby Joyce scandal story is building well. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull decided to ban sex between minister and their staff.

The daring step was taken after the scandalous affair of the deputy Prime Minister and leader of National Party, Barnaby Joyce with former staff Vikki Campion. Earlier, The Daily Telegraph had published a front page photograph to make it loud and clear the affair and Campion’s pregnancy. Barnaby ended his 24-year marriage with his former wife after this episode.

Joyce is now on leave to seek forgiveness from his former wife and four daughters. Barnaby Joyce is a catholic who had campaigned a lot for family values earlier. He is expecting a child this April with his new wife.

Turnbull said such conduct raises serious concern about the culture at workplace. PM lashed at the affair at a press conference in Canberra; this is after serious differences between his Liberal Party and Joyce’s National Party after the scandal went viral.

He couldn’t sack Joyce as the government is at narrow one-seat majority.

Malcolm Turnbull said that the ministers, whether married or single, must restrict themselves from sexual relationship with staff. If they do so it will be a breach of principles.
