Carter (and former Treaty Negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson) was one of the MPs mentioned as being past their use-by dates during the infamous taped phone call between National leader Simon Bridges and the very fecund and disgraced MP Jami-Lee Ross.

Your old mate understands that Carter is already preparing for life after Parliament, having put his hand up for the upcoming board elections for rural co-op Farmlands. Expect Carter to hand in his notice soon if he gets on the Farmlands board.
