The Barker Electorate

The Division of Barker is an Australian Electoral Division in the south-east of South Australia. The division was established on 2 October 1903, when South Australia’s original single multi-member division was split into seven single-member divisions.

It is named for Collet Barker, an early explorer of the region at the mouth of the Murray River. The 63,886 km² seat currently stretches from Morgan in the north to Port MacDonnell in the south, taking in the Murray Mallee, the Riverland, the Murraylands and most of the Barossa Valley,

Tell the NZ prime minister , if she’s giving money to Fiji to combat rising sea levels , she needs to think about New Zealand , last time I checked it’s AN ISLAND, choice bro -

Not "enough said", it's a little more complicated then a blanket statement can comprehend. But if your willing to copy and paste a sound bite and claim it as gospel then that says alot about you, regardless the statement.

You'd better get Peter Dutton on the job in Victoria where there's no gang problem and start ✈✈✈✈✈✈✈✈

as it should be and id expect the same from places such as new zealand if they have caught one of our citizens doing the same.

Unbelievable! Jacinda Ardern is asking us not to deport people who call Australia home and who would be considered to be Australian except for the paperwork. For example, if you come to Australia as a young child, start and finish your schooling here and are part of an Australian community, but your parents don't organise Australian citizenship for you and as you get older it is not front of mind and is overlooked - if people in this situation do the wrong thing, they have learnt those wrong skills (for want of a better term) on our watch, not New Zealand's. We should be the ones to take responsubility for these people.

Australia and New Zealand are happy to claim those who do great things as their own even when only born there. So why not claim their shame too?

As it should be.

One of my Kiwi mates says exactly the same

Appalling policy &good on labour NZ prime Minister to put scottmo back in his box at last

Jacinta Arden suck it up

Great more business means more employment for the south east but how will we accomodate the ever growing need for medical services in the south east and surrounding areas when we are already a highly populated elderly area. Accomodating more people with less GP’s is becoming impossible. Surely the government can step in and assist in gaining GP’s to attract them to country areas like Mount Gambier. Something needs to be done to assist in our ever growing needs as a community.

That will all depend on if they can keep the one they have now going

This week the organ donation outcomes for 2019 were released in the 2019 Australian Donation and Transplantation Activity Report. I used the opportunity to speak in Parliament about The Herd Of Hope and its founder, Megan McLoughlin, a truly inspirational member of our community.

I am very grateful to be the recipient of a Kidney transplant 2.5 years ago. Make sure you have the conversation with your loved ones as well to ensure your wishes are upheld👌

Awesome to see this mentioned

Excellent Maybe also check out the small charity Cottages 4 Country Care. They provide accommodation for rural people needing to see doctors and specialists in Adelaide. They have helped many organ transplant patients.

LYNDOCH ROAD COMPLETED 👏
Record infrastructure investment at both a State and Federal level is delivering outcomes, just like Lyndoch road. We're connecting the regions and boosting our economy as well as making roads safer for all motorists. Good things happen when Government's work together to deliver for our regions.

It’s been a long road, but Lyndoch Road is finally sealed! Thank you to all of the local residents and businesses for your advocacy and patience, and to Light Regional Council, The Barossa Council and Tony Pasin MP for helping to make it happen. Already there are great reports of increased visitation, not to mention the greatly improved safety aspects. There are still a few finishing touches to go, but it’s safe to say this is another election promise delivered! ✅ 📍 Southern Barossa Alliance, Chateau Yaldara, Gomersal Wines

Why didn’t our local Kingston community know this?

Great to catch up with South Australia local hero and Barossa resident Megan McLoughlin in Parliament House.

Data released yesterday shows the lives of 1,683 Australians were saved last year by organ transplants made possible through the generosity of 787 organ donors.

Great quilt too

AM Agenda this morning: I'm standing up for farmers in Barker. Labor has no plan to exempt farmers from their crazy zero emissions target. Even our friends across the ditch are willing to support jobs in Agriculture. ... See MoreSee Less

Us farmers can be pretty smart you know... little bit by little bit we can all achieve something. Without a target, how can you make a plan to get there? Why don't we just make a start - with a goal in mind - and get on with it?

Tony. Dairy is going to dissapear if you dont stop the overseas Almond growers putting water out of reach for dairy. The water minister said that Almonds make the water worth more. If Milk price was where it should be the dairy industry could compete. Corporate greed wins again

Farmers have nothing to do with climate change if anything they are the victims of the industries that are causing it being coal and gas destroying their livelihoods and using precious water resources and polluting them.

If Labor get in at next election AUSTRALUA might as well shut up shop...they'll send every business in Australia BROKE along with the Govt being broke too!

What have farmers got to do with zero emissions anyway? Other than diesel equipment?

There won't be any farmers left to exempt by then anyway...

Helen Wray You are on the money with your thoughts. Bloody nice to hear Somebody with a bit of common sense to speak up !!!!

Zero emissions hmmm?
