& # 39; I was expecting a call & # 39 ;: Barnaby Joyce eyed Scott Morrison after learning that he was a & # 39; special envoy & # 39; has been dumped on Twitter
- MP Barnaby Joyce says that Prime Minister Scott Morrison should have called him
- Former leader of the national party heard about his deposition via a tweet from Sky News
- Joyce was appointed as special envoy in August 2018 to help with drought
Former Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has provoked Prime Minister Scott Morrison because he did not personally inform him of his deposition.
MP Joyce learned to lose his job via a Sky News tweet just before the announcement of a new cabinet on Sunday.
In August 2018, he was appointed Special Envoy for Drought and Drought Assistance, but he has now been replaced by David Littleproud.

Joyce told Sky News on Monday that the prime minister had called him.
& # 39; I had (expected a phone call), but I didn't and that's life, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; That is the role that a leader has, they can make that call. But I think it's their job to pass that on to people, not to find out via Twitter.
& # 39; Why it is important is because you have staff and you have to call people.
& # 39; The first call I made when I found out was for my staff and to say: & # 39; I am really sorry, I will try to find you a job, you are a good employee, I am sure there is work there, I will try to put a good word in the respected places. & # 39;

Sky News has shared a video with the title & # 39; Barnaby Joyce is not looking forward to taking on his role as special envoy for the drought & # 39; on social media on Sunday.
& # 39; I just heard from you & # 39 ;, Joyce wrote in response to the tweet.
Commentators say that after the tumultuous spill in August last year, Prime Minister Morrison was under pressure to send Messrs Joyce and Tony Abbott back to the cabinet to prevent them from destabilizing his government.
Mr Abbott lost his safe Liberal seat from Warringah to independent Zali Steggall last Saturday.
