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,

Tony Pasin... why are you not lining up for the jab?

It's a no from me will not take part in the experimental jab. No liability to the big farm if anything goes wrong. No long term safety data available. First time ever this technology is being used. Like Greg Hunt this this is the biggest global trial ever. I did not nor did my family agree to be part of the trial...apparently It's voluntary (not mandatory) but unclear what exactly they mean by this...therefore we need to make sure coersion exclusion feeling bullied/pressured does not become an issue and affect people's right to move freely without restrictions. For me when you guarantee safety someone also guarantees responsibility if there are adverse reactions /sereve injury....but always informed consent without consequences.

Mr Pasin. Advertising is a scheme to get people to want or buy something they don't need. Remember the saying, "never trust a car salesman". Well the poor old car salesman has slipped to about fourth place nowadays.

If i decide that i am not going to have the covid vaccine .am i going to be treated differently to the people who have had the vaccination . ..

lets keep it up, we can get everyone in this great country of australia vaccinated !

Yep line up all you puppets...

Brian Chapple what are you worried about let them get the GMO human DNA in them

People need to do some serious investigation !

Your all bloody idiots

But is the northern area going to start? 🤔

Pray for those who ‘choose’ to be part of the human experiment 🧪🦠💉 It is voluntary - know your rights and know the consequences and possible side effects (inc autoimmune, Bell’s palsy and death etc) of the human trials. 🙏🏽

On today *channel 9 this morning **..Australian vaccines not approved for children. ..section 16.of the Children and Young people (Safety ) Act 2017 S.A. Defines a child or young person who is under the age of 18....

They can stick the vaccine up their arse.

This is an experiment till 2023. your choice. with no cases why would you 4% injure rate. My wishes go to the nurse in qld

While on the subject of destroying lives what was your vote on the abortion up to full term ?

No way Jose, why have these companies got no liability clauses if its so safe

Don't fall for this experiment with your health. Even if you are unlucky to ever get Covid, your chances of dying are about .05%. Your injection is riskier.

Great, but being in the next category, can’t see it happening before Xmas! This state is so bloody slow at doing things!

I'm going to have the vaccine. I saw on the news a young girl and a woman who got Covid and now they have problems with their lungs and heart they were so fit and healthy before. About end of May I'm having it

Make sure you study the ingredients and side effects before deciding 😢 been hearing lots of negatives 😢

Great news. I hope all goes well.

Hope the army aren't tiling in to enforce the roll out when not every one wants it😢

Why do yu head all your post "paid for by Tony Pasin MP". They are not paid for by you they are paid for by the Australian tax payer.

Why was a female shown as the “first” person to get the jab?

Goodness, it says there are 43comments, but only 8 came up. It said some had been filtered out. Has Facebook been censoring again?

Flood with heart reacts, drown out the conspiracy theorists

Good luck evry one

Noticed yesterday's comments was deleted. But I guess when 13 out of 14 comments was saying NO to the vaccine.??

Hope they got brains and not have it

So how many actually got jabbed yesty

South Australia never helped nobody so why now 58 years you never helped anybody

Well what have you ever done for South Australia government nothing so why do we need a government now

So what...

BREAKING NEWS

Homework to be banned in Australian Schools!

Or at least that would be the case if students at Faith Lutheran and Unity Colleges who are studying civics and citizenship got their way.

Thanks for having me and participating in the role play and debating the ‘No Homework Bill’ and NO it’s not now Australian law! (Nice Try)

That would have been interesting to hear.....is the government allowed to move a motion that the opposition spokesperson no longer be heard in a kids debate? That would have made it very real

When you go to school, you are supposed to learn there. Not be home, doing homework.

home work only taught you how to cheat , should be banned from all schools , school is school home is home

Any homework I did was on the bus on the way to school

I don’t pay school fees for my child to study at home while I work as an essential worker

Tell em “they’re dreaming!”

What a stupid headline.
