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,

The local kids in Naracoorte had an absolute ball today at the official opening of the Naracoorte Market Square Project.

The rain most certainly wasn’t going to stop them enjoying the new skate bowl and pump track.

And what about the many thousands of Australians who are not able to return to Australia because of the arrival caps in place? Because of the caps, it's either prohibitively expensive, or actually impossible to get a flight home. This whole situation needs a complete rethink.

and kick the ALP's backside on national security next year in an election.

After years of lobbying efforts the Truro Bypass has been included in the #Budget2021 This week I celebrated this win in Parliament.

To the members of the Truro Progress Association and the residents of Truro, this is a massive win that we achieved together.

How about securing all parts of our country that you, politicians from all parties , have sold of to overseas buyers! And we did not give you our approval to do so!

It’s about time u muppets fix up the health system be good idea 💡, get over your alter ego’s because everyone sees through it, there are regional roads that are completely stuffed in the mallee & what have u guys done ? When tractors are getting bounced off the road that’s a huge issue.

So now big spending and big debt is good! Our young people will be repaying the national debt for many years. Sadly much of the debt has been incurred by the LNP for its pet projects to ensure re-election.

Any news on retirement and disability pensions being increased?Perhaps they could be nearer to MPs pensions

A trillion dollars in debt and nothing to show for it. Another incompetent Liberal budget helping the greedy instead of the needy.

So everyone on disability has to check in fort nightly for their payments now and some of the elderly pensions too… talk about crapping on the ones in need

plenty of money for themselves and the mates and voters in the electorates they want to win.

what a load of cr..

The budget is fine but who are you member for? Get sick of all the pollies putting stuff on my fb.

Need to start planning a bridge over the river between Renmark & BERRI at Springcart gulley Paringa bridge is too old & narrow for trucks

Again and again the libs attitude is screw those who have nothing and give as much as you can to the those who are least deserving. Well done, nailed it. YUK

Nearly a trillion dollars given to business and the wealthy

Oh look , more libtards with more libshit for those brain dead imbeciles that think their doing a great job 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

Well that's the first and last we will hear from him ....back to seat warming.

Did everyone get to have a one-on-one photo opportunity that night?

Nothing for pensioners as usual

Josh could have atleast tried to look excited for the photo 😆

All bullshit . Rich get richer. Gallows the lot of you.👹🕷

Another con job

When are you going to look after the aged pensioners instead of looking after yourselves

GOOD WORK MR PASSION

Blah blah blah blah Crimo and his corrupt cronies, securing nothing but their own pockets & rich mate's!

Drop politicians pay packets and increase pensioners

All for the big end of town they are the only ones who actually see any money the rest are just empty promises. Up the unemployment rate and pensions amd cut parliamentarians pension.
