C’mon, mate

Written by  The Hound

Your old mate hears it can be a tough gig for MPs getting back into the real world after retiring (or being voted out of) from Parliament.

The Hound understands that former Agriculture Minister and Speaker of the House David Carter is due to stand down at next year’s election.

In the past year or so, Carter has been casting about in the rural sector for roles and has even put his name up for directorships of rural co-ops RuralCo and Farmlands.

However, shareholders in both co-ops have not voted the MP on to their boards of directors.

Perhaps Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor could help his former political rival and high school alumni and give Carter a role on one of the numerous working groups that he and his Government are so keen on setting up.



Stop making decisions for farmers

OPINION: From my observations of general media reporting it seems that in today’s world no one wants to take responsibility for their actions.
