Hey Barnaby, if the photographer files charges today, get some advice on beating them from Gillard's ex Bruce Wilson
This morning Barnaby Joyce recorded a couple of videos of a paparazzi photographer who'd been staking him out.
Guy Finlay from Matrix Picture Agency accused Barnaby of "sizing him up" outside church - he seems to think Barnaby was going to thump him.
This afternoon The Australian reported that Finlay's employer, Matrix Picture Agency is considering filing an assault report with police against Barnaby.
Here are the videos:
Coming out of church, guess who is hiding in the bushes taking photos, yet won’t give his name or who he works for pic.twitter.com/YNi4hRj4qU— Barnaby Joyce (@Barnaby_Joyce) June 10, 2018
We did the Sunday program to stop this, this is why we need a tort of privacy. pic.twitter.com/hLQReDOQta— Barnaby Joyce (@Barnaby_Joyce) June 10, 2018
Matrix Picture Agency is a UK agency with a branch in Australia - here's how they see themselves:
Photographers are a fact of life for people like Barnaby - and angry subjects are a fact of life for paparazzi photographers.
It does appear to be pretty unwise of Barnaby to follow the bloke around throwing questions at him, but sometimes there really is no justice.
If the police come calling for Barnaby over for church blue today, how did the perennially protected former AWU chief, slush fund operative and Gillard accessory Bruce Wilson get away with this!
