Sandra Bamberry got up during last night’s Q&A to ask the deputy prime minister, Barnaby Joyce, how she could get justice for her kids, who she says have been exposed to lead levels several times the safe limit.
Last night’s Q&A was filmed in the country NSW city of Tamworth, in the deputy PM’s seat of New England, to highlight some of the issues facing regional people this election.
“The kids got sick – mainly blood noses, rashes, constant viruses,” Sandra told BuzzFeed News after the show.
“[Since we left] we haven’t had a virus, a flu or the rashes and blood noses,” Sandra told BuzzFeed News.
The deputy prime minister, Barnaby Joyce, told Sandra on Q&A that he was “very aware of the issues that surround Tara”.
No one was buying it.
Least of all Sandra.
