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,Learn more about Barker

I couldn’t agree with Megan’s sentiments more.
We need safer roads, and that means significant investment into road infrastructure. ... See MoreSee Less

Earlier this week I asked Anthony Albanese's representative in the Senate three questions. I wanted to know how if the Minister know how much Aussie taxpayers were forking out this year for the "National Indigenous Australians Agency" to provides “advice on whole-of-government priorities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people” Hint- the answer is 4.5 billion dollars and it was clear the Minister wasn't aware of that. Further more the NIAA "priorities" this year include closing the gaps, implementing the Uluru Statement, developing a new jobs program, delivering “first nations justice” – whatever that means – delivering the Territories Stolen Generations Redress Scheme and establishing the new Northern Territory Aboriginal Investment Corporation. It has also budgeted 31 million dollars to deliver local and regional voice implementation despite the Prime Minister saying he would not fund the yes or no cases in the coming referendum. Seeing as how its already acting as a "Voice" why do we need Albanese's raced-based version? Finally, will the Minister please explain why Australians should not believe the government’s ulterior motive in implementing the Uluru Statement is to establish an independent sovereign black nation in Australia? The cheers from Lidia Thorpe show you that this is defiantly high on the agenda of many. Labor's lack of knowledge of basic costs, details and their refusal to upfront with Australians about even the smallest detail of Albanese's Voice or their Governments future intentions should deeply concern all Australians. As a result, voting no to Albanese's race-based voice is the only responsible thing to do. VOTE NO AT THE REFERENDUM, You will not know what will be put in the CONSTITUTION.
Whinny flog, no better under you scum
Ha ha ha what joke
Yeah, right! 😂
As we have known for months the Member for Hume changed the date to announce the upcoming power increases until after the 2022 election. What was your reaction to this? Very blatant deceit.
It is cheaper than it would have been. Power caps for example that you voted against. Even RBA has said the budget hit the right spot. Your deputy leader,herself, agreed with the governor.
They (Libs/Labour etc.)are all the fn same. Either clowns with no skills or spine that want to earn good money. No interest in serving the public, why else would you sell public utilities and privatise stuff. Need a revolt by the common man!
Labor is asking Australians to permanently change the Constitution BEFORE providing details about how the Voice would operate.
Labor's proposal is risky, unknown, permanent and divisive.
This is not how a debate about the most significant change to our Constitution should be conducted in our country. ... See MoreSee Less
It's a big YES from me. We must close the gap and like the 1967 referendum to include indigenous people in the census (previously counted as flora and fauna OMG) and MABO The Voice is the next step forward.
It’s a no from me
LNP are worried because when in Constitution then they can't fiddle to suit themselves and donors. They do with everything else
wait till the Rent Tax starts , or they decide that you live on THEIR land & they want it back
The Liberal Party's dog whistling on The Voice is deafening! Their response to the referendum question under Peter Dutton aligns them with this nation's Far Right, including neo-Nazis, which tells us everything we need to know about it. While the Yes vote is supported by the overwhelming majority of the nation's institutional, legal, academic, sporting,, social and business organisations, the likes of the Murdoch press, Pauline Hanson, Mark Latham, and others from the Far Right continue to peddle misinformation and outright lies aimed at confusing the electorate. Even the Liberal Party itself is divided over the question, with the few moderate MPs who remain in the party choosing to vote Yes and not supporting their own party's stand. Sadly, the lies and misinformation being peddled by you are raising unwarranted doubts about the proposal gradually undermining the Australian people's initial strong support for it. You should be ashamed, Tony Pasin!
Its not Labour's Voice...Its our Voice! There is plenty of information available on the concepts of the proposal. Have you even read Prof Langtons proposal Tony? Its your job Tony Paisin, along with all parliamentarians to get off your backsides and work out the details of how it works! The Liberal Party seems incapable of understanding how referenda have worked in the past and will work in the future. This so called "lack of detail" is just a pathetic smokescreen by the Liberals and Nationals to reject the proposal. Well I vote YES, a big YES. We need a better deal for our indigenous people. Get with it Tony, you and Dutton are just making the Liberal Party more and more irrelevant in Australia's political landscape.
It's a NO from me
Nonsense. Silly memes to sway uneducated folk. Governments don't put too much detail into a constitution BC a constitution is too hard to change. The details are up to the government we elect. voice.gov.au/
Tony Pasin MP Tsk,Tsk, bit sharp with Merilyn lil Tone! You took for granted she hadn't read the Calma Langton report and bragged you had. I doubt it.To arrive at a single sticking point and ignore the thrust of the entire report looks more like a lawyer loopholing to me. You cherry picked Julian Leeser's summary and found the wedge, the old selected or elected dilemma! A nay sayers win either way. If elected, then by whom?The old Andy Bolt chestnut, are they brown enough to qualify? Or if selected, then by party political bias? The Oz constitution, is more useful as dunny paper. A heap of waffle about the State's rights. You should read it. State's Rights, which you and the Morrison Muppets bulldozed during the pandemic. No debate or referendum needed then? Wazza Mundine, the once Labour then Liberal member now seems to be working for the mining gorgons and their foreign masters. Wazza Mundine is a genuine fake. Grow a backbone Tone, stand with Leeser .🐐
Tony Pasin MP 91% of Australians voted YES in the 1967 referendum to include indigenous Australians to be counted as part of the Australian population. Now we have an opportunity to give our indigenous Australians a Voice in parliament. Historically white Australians have made decisions on behalf of indigenous Australians. Do you think the stolen generation of little kids would have ever been sanctioned if there had been an Indigenous Voice in Parliament during those times? Indigenous leaders who know the problems and have a say in the fix are paramount to assisting our understanding of the problems.
What an amazing photograph! Opened in 1879 the bridge across the Murray River at Murray Bridge played an important role in linking Adelaide to Melbourne.
What hasn't changed since 1879 is that our regional transport infrastructure remains integral to the safe and efficient movement of people and goods across this great country. ... See MoreSee Less
What a great photo!
I have a water colour painting of the bridge just before it was finished which is amazing
It's amazing that before big gruberment and unions, we used to do shit so Good. Pitty it ain't that way anymore.
12 months ago Labor promised a $275 reduction in power bills. Instead, your bills will increase. ... See MoreSee Less
I had heard 24% but this is even worse, we need utilities back into the hands of the people or at least get the coal and gas plants running again under government ownership to create a better supply and competition between the major providers.
Actual promise before the election was: Cut power bills for households by $275 a year by 2025 compared to before the election. LNP leave out "by 2025".
Albonese lied all the way to the election with a plan that was never revealed Life was pretty good under Morrison as Albos plan takes hold. The promised lfe of luxury is quickly turning to hurt nd despair
Was'nt it the Liberal Government who sold ETSA under John Olson after him saying they would never privatise it. ????
You clearly know fuck all about this, refer to privatisation
Come on Tony Pasin MP, let's be honest, Firstly. Angus Taylor hid a 12‰ price rise in power until after the elections. He even changed the regulations so he wouldn't have to announce the increase.. Really honest! Secondly, these increases are due, in part, to the ridiculous gas marketing your government allowed the gas suppliers to set up. Cheap gas for export and expensive gas for Australia... You lot deserved to be thrown out of office.
What did you do when you where in power not much
As reported in this weeks Murray Valley Standard, the Murray Bridge Basketball Association MBBA is desperate for the Regional Stadium Project to go ahead, but it can only do so with extra funding.
Prior to the 2022 Federal election, the Coalition made a commitment for a further $3 million for Stage 2 if re-elected. An application for funding was also under assessment for Round 6 of the Building Better Regions Fund, before Labor cancelled the highly popular grant program last year.
Due to Labor's delays and funding cuts, the project is stalled at Stage 1.
Thank goodness at least Stage 1 received $1.9 million from Round 5 of BBRF back in 2021.
An upgraded Stadium at Murray Bridge would bring an additional 660 sports visitors each month, injecting $1.4 million into the local economy. It would also encourage more people to come and call the region home helping to fill workforce shortages, bringing further economic benefits. It's why the Rural City of Murray Bridge has been so supportive.
Labor simply don't understand the regions and how to support economic growth.
I'll keep fighting for projects like this and standing up for our regional communities. ... See MoreSee Less
Just hope council rates don’t have to go up 18% to help fund it like it has down here in mount gambier to fund there sports complex….I’m a massive liberal person mate but you guys need to sort yourselves out by next election….
Fantastic turnout for the Biggest Morning Tea in Mount Gambier this morning!

C'mon Tone not every worthy community event is run for your political grand standing.Surely your prize should be the promise not to turn up? That way everybody wins.And the people who should be recognised won't have the limelight stolen by a grifting political runt.🐐

You mentioned Canberra so I am being relevant. I was disgusted with the behaviour of your side of the house today. More noise than a full front bar at the pub.
I saw you had to leave the chamber under 94a again. Seems to usually happen last Thursday of fortnight sitting. Parliament statistics report your attendance is overall only 89 percent. Why?
Now to fix the stretch where you constantly swerve into the wrong lane to miss pot holes and rough patches.first time to the south-east in 4 years and after growing up there I'd say some of the tracks between the pinetrees are safer
Tom, I understand your frustrations. Our local member failed to get kicked out once again. Just as Brother Stewie Robert slipped away without a murmur, our Deputy Shadow of Infrastructure has disappearing skills unmatched until the next photo shoot.🐐
The national road toll has risen 4.6% in the last 12 months. The last thing we need right now is the Federal Labor Government cutting funding to local road programs. ... See MoreSee Less
After watching your "Tony Pasin" car driving to Adelaide today, you need to listen to what you are saying. I passed your car tailgating a car and trailer today, there wasn't much room between you and them. Absolutely no room if I had to pull in. Who ever was driving your car then tailgated me, lucky I didn't have to brake suddenly. It's not a nice feeling having someone tailgate you, I did slow down for you to pass me but you just sat behind me. The passing lanes are for passing not for you to sit in the right lane not passing anyone. This driving went on between Willalooka and Coomandook where you decided to turn off right infront of a truck to use the toilets. May I suggest you sit on a constant speed and leave one to two car spaces between you and the car in front of you!!! There is nothing wrong with the roads it's drivers like you or whoever was driving your car that cause accidents.
Just more radars in 50km/hr zones... coz that's where all the road fatalities are
One in two Australian's will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. It is the leading cause of death in Australia. Every single one of us is touched by cancer in one way or another. Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is a community event that raises vital funds to make a difference for those impacted by cancer and this year, the event turns 30! 🎉🎂

Lookin' good lil Tone. It may be time to look into Cuban heels. Standing next to Mount Gambier's own de-sanctimonious, Hoodie could be an embarrassment. He's nearly 8ft tall. You would look like a garden gnome. I stuff newspaper in my heels, hope that helps. Now, please apologise for dropping our wonderful Mayor right in the shit. You had the Papal letter from Abbott the mad monk, some say the worst PM ever but I'm punting for Morrison. Did you skip Parliament Question Time early again as Barry Kaine noticed, to organise an apology or a photo shoot?🐐
