A private text message from Mr Littleproud to Mr Joyce, which happened to be published in the Australian,reads:

The Millmerran guys you spoke to on Friday would have preferred you either told them on Friday this or told them before a public statement from you.

Why did Mr Joyce refuse to listen to Mr Littleproud's constituents and to his Nationals colleagues and, instead, announce publicly that the Inland Rail line was 'settled' and 'well underway'?
