Seems Barnaby isn't the only one confusing his millions and billions and trillions!

I particularly enjoyed watching Lenore [Taylor on the ABC's Insiders program this morning] saying (Barnaby) Joyce was a loose cannon and high risk because he confused billions with trillions, quite oblivious to the fact she had just done EXACTLY THE SAME THING. When she talked about the big news in Queensland, she referred to a deal worth “$65 million!”. Flash to the headline and it was of course $65 billion. Of course just a mistake and not at all noteworthy, except she and everyone else somehow used that same type of mistake to say Joyce was an embarrassment as shadow finance minister.
