Barlilaro fronts media and calls out Google

Barilaro fought back tears as he told reporters public life had “taken a toll”.

“It is tough on anybody in public life to continue in this role, especially under so much scrutiny, especially media scrutiny,” Mr Barilaro said.

“Ten and a half years is a long time in politics. Five years is a very long time as Deputy Premier, I’ve taken it seriously and given everything I possibly could have.”

Barilaro, who was born in Queanbeyan to Italian migrant parents, said his focus was to make regional NSW a better place to live and work.

However, he said comments online have “made it very difficult” for him during his time in office, due to the “disgusting, vile, racist commentary” and feels for people who are victimised on social media.

“That’s why I’m calling out google today,” he told reporters.

“It’s made it very very difficult for me. When you get online, the abuse you cop, started by disgusting, vile, racist commentary… hidden by journalism or comedy.”
