Chris Carter off on another junket

This is un-fricken-believable. Chris “Koru Club” Carter has decided to take yet another junket on the taxpayer.

Labour MP Chris Carter is to lead a team monitoring general elections in the Caribbean state of St Kitts and Nevis.

Mr Carter said Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma asked him to head the five-person team monitoring the January 25 election.

The last election in 2004 was plagued by allegations of corrupt practices.

The team would spend 10 days in St Kitts and Nevis. It would write a report on the election.

Sending a Labour member to monitor an election in a country beset by corrupt practices! At least he will know how to recognise thembeing a member of the same party that is yet to distance itself from the corrupt practices that Taito Phillip Field was convicted of.

Oh and how convenient that the only election on offer to go and monitor happens to be in the Caribbean. Lastly just how believable is it that Chris “Koru Club” Carter was personally asked to go by some wallah at the Commonwealth. I bet he is taking Peter too.
