Barnaby Joyce has accused Malcolm Turnbull of using the scandal surrounding the former deputy prime minister's affair with a staffer for his own political gain.

After news broke in February about Mr Joyce's affair with his former media adviser Vikki Campion, the prime minister announced a ban on cabinet ministers having sex with their staff.

Mr Joyce says he was annoyed by the prime minister's "stupid" move.

"First of all, it's using someone else's personal dilemma for your own political advancement, which is a very poor form of politics," Mr Joyce told Macquarie Radio.

"Straight away, you're burying your deputy. That's something you do in the change room, you don't do it on the football field.

"It didn't help him and it certainly didn't help me. It didn't help anybody else either. It just didn't look right."

Former deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce has reserved the right to cross the floor on the National Energy Guarantee vote. Mr Joyce, and others like former prime minister Tony Abbott, believe the National Energy Guarantee is too green and does more to lower emissions than power bills.Mr Joyce has suggested the government should have the ability to break up power companies if prices don’t drop.“We have to have the capacity in the future, to say if you don’t play the game we have the capacity, with anti-trust legislation, to say we can divest you of one of your assets, force you to put it back on the market.
