Barnaby Joyce resigns as Australia's deputy prime minister and National party leader, saying he hopes it will put an end to the continual speculation. Joyce tells the media gathered in Armidale, New South Wales, he will formally resign at a meeting of the National party on Monday morning and that he hopes the move will act as a 'circuit breaker' for the sake of parliament, his partner, his unborn child and his daughters and wife. 'This has got to stop. It's not fair on them,' he says.
