Senator Matthias Cormann, who will become acting Prime Minister while Mr Turnbull travels to the US next week to meet US President Donald Trump, denied the relationship between the Prime Minister and his Deputy had been irrevocably damaged by the affair.
Nationals MPs were in raptures within an hour of the announcement, indignant that the Prime Minister had kicked along the story after Mr Joyce appeared to be hanging on to his job as late as Wednesday.Mallee MP Andrew Broad said the ban sent a mesage that "somehow the Parliament is an orgy".

Those smiles are now gone with Mr Turnbull's support of Mr Joyce weak at best.
