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,

Congratulations to Robert Sloane of Tanunda, Helen Sandow of Nuriootpa, Wendy Gaborit of Murray Bridge and Frank England of Kingston who were included on todays Australia Day Honours List.

Congratulations also to the local Australia Day award recipients across Barker and of course to those who by swearing allegiance to our country in ceremonies across the nation have today become our newest citizens. You have joined the greatest club on earth.

After a year that has challenged us more than any in my lifetime, I have never been more proud to be Australian.  

Happy Australia Day! 🇦🇺

After a year that has challenged us with fire, drought and the coronavirus pandemic, I have never been more proud of being Australian.

On Australia Day we celebrate all the things we love about Australia: our sense of fair go, our diversity and lifestyle, our cohesive society, our democracy and the freedoms we enjoy, our resilience and generosity in the face of adversity and our unwavering community spirit.

To all Australians - be proud, be thankful and enjoy a great Australia Day.

Still won't be proud to be an Australian until we acknowledge our country is built on the genocide of our First Nations people...

I will try, but stuck overseas makes it difficult

Well said

Well said TonyPasin

Enjoy the date mate ...

So how about those upstream of you Tony Pasin MP ? https://www.facebook.com/283855261693157/posts/3672022806209702/ Something tells me they are not celebrating today. What are you going to do about this when the fetid water reaches SA?? What about the fish kills? When will the Federal Government do.something about protecting the lifeblood of our country? How many of your constituents will suffer when again we have polluted water flowing down the Murray? Happy Australia day....for a lot of people out there I doubt it.

Happy Australia Day Tony Pasin MP

Sheryl Dee..that is BS ..sheep

Only Trouble is where it is made

PFIZER COVID-19 VACCINE APPROVED

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has today been provisionally approved for use in Australia by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

Australians can be confident that the TGAs review process of this vaccine was of the highest standard, meeting strict standards for safety, quality and efficacy.

We will work with Pfizer on the final date of delivery of vaccines, with the first doses of Pfizer expected to arrive and be rolled out in late February.

A great step forward for Australia.

Gees where do some of get all your conspiracy theories from some of you need a mental health check, as for thalidomide it destroyed the vitamin B s in our systems if I remember correctly which is why the birth defects happened and Australia has a very high standard of checks before we use any vaccine furthermore Tony Pasin is a decent bloke when I was battling centrelink for more than two months to get my aged pension which I was fully entitled to he had my back within a day of my letter of complaint being faxed he rang me and I had my pension and back paid to my birthday within four days so he makes an effort for his constituents and follows through rang me to make sure I had received it too

It doesn't even fit the definition of a vaccine, it doesn't stop you from catching or spreading Covid, it is a scam to make more money.

David Ross & other antivaxers Tony Pasin can’t take this vaccine because he’s not old enough lol. but I am & I will gratefully take it with thanks like the other vaccines that keep me well & healthy

Why then don't I believe it,s been tested enough, and having thoughts of not having it as I don't trust it.

Yep, just like the govt said about thalidomide and kept the accumulating side effects overseas secret for way too long. Govt does not care about us people! Otherwise they would not have banned doctors from prescribing the easy and safe treatment - name escapes me atm. The WHO has finally agreed it works and can be used. Why risk your health on a DNA altering (from the mouth of Bull Gates-of-hell!) vaccine that hasn't been tested for even a year.

I think it is important that people are aware that clinical trials of these "vaccines" doesn't finish until 2023!! So everyone who is taking the "vaccine" which is being rolled out world wide is participating in the "vaccine clinical trials". The biggest human experiment in human history!!! Pfizer jab won’t be complete till January 27th 2023!!! https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04368728 The Moderna trials come to a close on December 2023 !!! https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03897881 The AstraZeneca trials will reach completion in February 2023 !!! https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04516746

Can health workers be made to have it and be threatened they won't have a job if they don't??

I will wait until the vaccine is made in Australia by CSL . I will support Australian workers

You want to get votes . You should stay away from this poison ☠️ word on the streets . (Real people not msm bullshit ) don’t want it

Funny how we have all these experts in facebook who say it is not safe etc. Sometimes there are medical exoerts who know more than you!!!!

You can stick it up your arse

Since you are promoting it, then you should be held liable for every adverse reaction and death and charged accordingly.

Ta but no ta

I have been told that people who take immune suppressant medication shouldn't get vaccine? I have Crohn's Disease, an auto immune disease controlled by immune suppressant medication which lowers white blood count because I have too many.

By definition it is not a vaccine so stop calling it 1

No way. Not for this little black duck.

It’s not safe and it doesn’t work.

Wait and see with this one.

People are getting horrible rashes and worse from this..

Has anyone been cured yet...anyone ?

not enough testing and to many mutations

Tony Pasin - If you lay down with fleas you'll get fleas!

Not me thanks too quick too hurried I will take my chances have enough jabs ??

Who cares.

what a load of rubbish for the common cold
