NO REGRETS ON THE MINISTER SEX BAN: PM
Australia's prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has no regrets about the new sex ban prohibiting cabinet ministers from having sexual relations with their staffers.
Mr Turnbull announced the ban on Thursday after it was revealed deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce had an extramarital affair with his media adviser with the PM labelling it a "shocking error of judgment".
"I certainly felt that the values I expressed and the action I took, would have the overwhelming endorsement of Australians. I felt it was absolutely the right thing to do," Mr Turnbull told the Nine Network's 60 Minutes program on Sunday.
He said the public wanted to hear his "heartfelt views" about what had happened.
Mr Turnbull revealed he had also consulted with his wife of 38 years, Lucy, about the sex ban.
"Yes Lucy and I talked about this, this is one of those classic issues where it's good to take counsel from your wife, life partner," he said.
The prime minister also maintained he was not interfering with the Nationals' party processes despite saying Mr Joyce needed to "reflect" on his position.
Mr Turnbull described Mr Joyce's affair with Vikki Campion as causing "a world of woe".
But a Nationals MP hit out against the program questioning why the deputy prime minister wasn't interviewed.
"Funny that 60 minutes didn't bother to ask Barnaby Joyce whatever they wanted for tonight's story when he was on the same floor as their film crew in Sydney's Commonwealths (sic) Parliamentary Offices on Friday," controversial George Christensen tweeted.
Mr Joyce promptly retweeted the statement.
.. sex with a ( consenting ) adult women ... the last time that happened ( causing a scandal , it involved the minister and his WIFE .
teens and same sex coupling usually goes unreported .. do much for parliamentary standards
even Putin can't resist a joke

The Qantas Group has announced a reorganisation of its executive leadership team.
Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the new structure would help the company keep delivering for customers
“Over the past three years, our senior executive team has led the Group through a major turnaround. We’re
now entering a phase of ongoing improvement and innovation, and these changes will help drive that.
“This is also about making the best use of the considerable leadership talent at the top level of our
organisation,” he added.
The changes among the direct reports to Alan Joyce are:
- Jon Scriven (Group Executive of People and Culture) will retire after eight-and-a-half years at Qantas.

- Andrew Finch will take on the responsibility for Office of the CEO in additional to his current
responsibilities as General Counsel and Company Secretary.
- Andrew David, currently CEO of Qantas Domestic, will also assume responsibility for Qantas Freight,

Mr Joyce said the retirement of Jon Scriven and the promotion of Alison Webster from within the business to
the executive management group reflected renewal within a well-established team.
“Jon has been instrumental to the overall transformation of our business and has also driven the strategy to
increase the engagement levels of our people, which are now at record levels.
“I’m pleased that we will be welcoming a new member to the Qantas executive team, with Alison Webster
joining as the CEO of Qantas International.

Now Barnaby has 4 girls.
Thats a bad record to start with.
Any idiot knows that timing is what its all about when it comes to having boys.
Does he go off before he gets it in?
Obviously Failed Biology.
a ban WON'T work ( it will only add a kinky , naughty, illicit element to the misadventure )
my proposal is to change the national anthem and SHAME THEM back into the crevices they multiply in
failed biology ?? failed trustworthiness and ethics ( would YOU let him overseas with all those femme-fatale foreign agents , lurking )
Being young and having a lot of energy is very attractive. Sometimes I have seen white bodystockings being worn by girls in shopping centers. Many of these girls are probably entrêtants who only want to be viewed by men because this gives them this feeling of being wanted and needed. I have often seen white bodystockings https://lovermart.com/product/sheer-fantasy-lace-edge-floral-bodystocking-white-o-s-2/ being worn by girls who have lost their virginity or are very willing to show off their bodies, usually without any regard for the protection that modesty clothing provides.
When there was quarantine and I had to work, I often did not know what to do. Therefore, I found the site Onlinestars.net for myself. There are a lot of pretty girls out there. The videos with them are very hot. I think the guys will definitely appreciate it. So if you love this or you are just interested, then I recommend that you come in and see
Haha! I love Putin's sense of humor! Such a big man and not worried about making some good jokes. Somehow I am against this sex ban. What the hell? MPs are not people; they do not have desires and fetishes. Like why the ban is not applied to all employers and employees that do infringe the law by doing sex at the workplace or with their boss. And I do not get how these ministers have the guts to go to such a risk when they can accesshttps://www.escorts2.com/female-escorts/nevada/las-vegaschoose a girl they prefer. I'm just recommending the site because I use their services. I do not see sense in risking your career and reputation like that.
