LETTER: The Nationals show true colours with Ali win

Firstly I would like to congratulate Ali Cupper on her win, a great result for Mildura/Sunraysia.

Then I read with interest an article in the Weekly Times by journo Peter Hunt (Tuesday 4/12) whereby former leader of The Nationals Barnaby Joyce gets stuck into Ali Cupper in an interview that she did with the Times previous to the election results being known.

What Mr Joyce claims is really an absolute load of rubbish and should be treated as such.

I mean how can you take this person seriously after the way that he has behaved in public office and just shows how low that The Nationals will stoop to try to discredit Ali before the seat of Mildura was even declared.

And really, when you look at it. Mr Joyce is the last person to point the finger/have a go at anyone.
