Vikki Campion father wants to burn Barnaby Joyce alive

The father of Barnaby Joyce's mistress says he wants to see the politician burnt alive and eaten 'like the lamb he is'. 

Retired firefighter Peter Campion, estranged father of Vikki Campion, 33, roasted the Deputy Prime Minister on Thursday, saying he wanted to burn him on a fire. 

'I just want to say 'bah' as we call him in our place,' Mr Campion said referring to Mr Joyce as a sheep.

'We're saving a place by the fire and by the fire, I mean over the fire. I've got rather a taste for lamb roast at the moment and I think the Deputy Prime Minister on a spit would be quite a sight.'

Mr Campion first heard of his daughter's relationship with Mr Joyce from media reports on Wednesday revealing the couple are expecting a baby in April. 

'Vikki's mother and I think that with Baaa-naby [sic] as dad the kid will probably be a perfect little lamb,' he said in a statement made to the Cairns Post. 

'Politics sure does make for strange bedfellows. We just never imagined our daughter would hop into one with a former Kiwi.

'Our future son-in-law should give himself an uppercut for failing to give one to the PM.'

Mr Campion said he has not spoken to his daughter, a former journalist and Mr Joyce's media adviser, for years.

Ms Campion attended high school in Tolga, in the Tablelands Region of Far North Queensland, and her father writes regular letters to the regional newspaper.

A critic of the Turnbull Government, Mr Campion said in his statement he hopes Mr Joyce 'can find a respectable job' and referred to the prime minister as 'Mr Talkbull'. 

The Deputy Prime Minister first announced his separation from his wife of 24-years, Natalie Joyce, in December last year.

Mr Joyce broke his silence about Ms Campion's pregnancy on Wednesday night, saying the breakdown of his marriage was painful for everyone involved.

'One of the greatest failures of my life was the end of my marriage,' he said during an interview with the ABC.

Just hours earlier Natalie Joyce made a statement to the media saying she felt 'hurt and deceived' by the Deputy Prime Minister.

'The situation is devastating, for my girls who are affected by the family breakdown and for me as a wife of 24 years who placed my own career on hold to support Barnaby through his political life,' she said.

'Our family has had to be shared during Barnaby's political career
